Splash the town with color as you participate in the most artful 5K around!  This is a great way to give back to help create more community arts programming and help make our community more creative, while having a colorful blast at the same time!

The Color Splash 5K is a fundraiser to benefit the Library Arts Center. The 5K run / walk will take place around the town of Newport, New Hampshire, and participants may contribute to several large-scale art installations along the route.  Kids (and adults, if they wish) will have the opportunity to be doused with color during the fun run inside the “Color Corridor” just before the 5K begins.   Participants may choose to run or walk the course.  This is a TIMED COURSE for runners.

See more information about the: Color Corridor

PRIZES will be awarded to the 1st, 2nd, & 3rd place finishers (male & female) as well as to the top fundraisers, and to the team with the most colorful/creative attire for the 5K.  1st, 2nd, & 3rd place finishers in each age category (male & female) will also be recognized (& published).

Kids and adults alike are doused with color during the "Color Corridor" Fun Run before the 2012 Color Splash 5K.
