Color Me Green 5K Trail Run

Green clouds, green water, and green clothes make the Color Me Green 5K Trail Run. Prepare to dodge or score as much or as little green powder at this 5K trail run. Choose from three divisions (Competitive, Recreation, or Kids Fun Run) and snag an award if you finish as the cleanest or greenest racer. Leprechaun sightings are always possible. Raft down a green whitewater channel after the race or stick around for live music, yoga, and other festivities at Green River Revival.
