Color Me Green 5K Color Run

Channel the luck of the Irish as you dodge green dye throughout the Color Me Green 5K, a challenging trail race with a St. Patrick’s Day twist. This untimed race challenges runners to avoid or invite being bombarded with green dye as they run through the USNWC trail system. We recommend that runners wear white t-shirts as awards will be given to the cleanest and the greenest participants.
