Bethel Color Burst 5K Fun Run/Walk

Saturday, April 7, 2018
9:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Bethel Middle School welcomes you to join us for the 2nd Annual Color Burst 5K as we run, walk, and jog while raising funds for the 7th grade Nature's Classroom trip! Nature's Classroom gives students and teachers the chance to experience education from another perspective, outside the walls of the classroom. After spending 5 days here, living and learning together, students develop a sense of community, a confidence in themselves and an appreciation for others that carries over to the school community.

Our Facebook page is "Bethel Middle School Color Burst 5K - A Fun Run/Walk" or find us by searching for @Bethel5K.

This fun run/walk is open to EVERYONE in the community and we hope to see you there! Children ages 5 and older need to purchase a ticket to participate in the race. Children under age 5 may participate for free but will not receive the shirt and other items that come with the race fee.

The Bethel Middle School Color Burst 5K is an untimed fun run/walk featuring a 5K cross country course on the grounds of the Bethel school complex. On the way to the final color toss celebration, participants will travel through color zones across the course where they will be sprayed in color! (Food dye +water)
