Grab your most festive holiday attire and lace up your running shoes because this holiday season, East McDowell Middle School will be hosting the inaugural Holiday Color Run on November 23 on the EMMS campus. The fun run will loop participants around the campus two times to make the 3.1 miles, for the 5K course. Participants will go through several color stations along the course, ensuring you are full of red and green holiday cheer at the finish.
Participants will receive a short sleeve, Holiday Color Run shirt that you are encouraged to wear during the event so you are able to sport your holiday cheer. Participants will also receive a wooden finisher ornament at the finish line, and a packet of red or green color powder to start off your holiday festivities. Participants must register before November 15 to guarantee their shirt. and size. This is a fun run, so it will not be timed. There will not be awards for winners, or for age groups. This is simplity a great way to come have a fun, festive time, and support our school.
We will have holiday music, a free ornament decorating station, and cookies and hot chocolate for sale for a small fee.
All proceeds will go to East McDowell Middle School to help benefit our students and staff.
