Crazy for Color Fun Run is tomorrow morning

Crazy for Color has come to Burns Flat America!

That sounds great, but I have no idea what it is.  It is a 5K (3.1 mile) fun run that kicks off at 10:00 a.m. tomorrow.  The registration and check-in begin at 9:00 a.m at the city pool which is located at 102 Sooner Drive in Burns Flat, Oklahoma.

So what’s the Crazy for Color part?

Throughout the course, race participants will experience color splash zones.  Yes, people will be splashing color on you.  You might want to wear glasses and something white.

Runners and walkers of all ages are welcome.  Yes, you can bring your stroller, and yes the color is nontoxic and will wash off.

Now here is the big question:  Why?  

Why would anyone hold a crazy run like this?

It is to raise money for the Parks and Recreation Committee for future improvements to our community.  If you haven’t noticed, baseball fields have been improved and the town has a new skate park.  The Parks and Recreation folks have ignited the pride in long-term members of our community and want to make Burns Flat a great place to live and raise a family.

This Crazy for Color 5K run is a fun way to raise some money.  Entry fee is $25 and may be paid at the town hall or at registration.
