King’s Daughters Orthopaedics and Sports Medicine and Marshall Orthopaedics will sponsor the Color Splash 5K Run Saturday, June 7, in Ashland. The race begins at 8 a.m. in Ashland Central Park (by the concession stand at the end of Chuck Woolery Boulevard).
The course is flat with long straightaways through downtown Ashland. Runners will start and finish at The Park Place. The course will be well marked and runners pass a water station twice.
“You can walk, jog, run or crawl the 5K,” said Sabrina Esenbock, race coordinator. “The race will not be timed, but runners should be ready to have fun and get splashed from head to toe with colored dye at the finish. Those who want to know their time should bring a stopwatch.” She noted runners are encouraged to wear white to get the full effect of the color dye.
Registration fee is $15 if pre-registered by 7 p.m., June 6, and $20 thereafter. Pre-registration packets will be available from 4 to 7 p.m., Thursday, June 5, at KDMC Outpatient Service Center, 480 23rd St. in Ashland. Registration is also available online at tristateracer.com. No refunds will be given. Proceeds will be used to provide free baseline concussion testing for the community.
Race T-shirts will be available for the first 250 people registered. For more information about the race, contact Esenbock at (606) 408-9761 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
