Get ready, Delco, for the most colorful fun-filled day of your life! The Delco Young life Color Blast 5K is coming back more colorful then ever! So, get your friends and family for this amazing event; you will run through eight color stations where color powder gets thrown onto you, ending with our epic giant paint war open to all runners! Children under 5 are free! EARLY REGISTRATION PRICING IS AVAILABLE UNTIL MARCH 20th, after which the price will increase by $5 for the 5K and the Fun Run. FAMILY DISCOUNT is available for families of 4 or more. Email the race director to get this special family code! The Delco YL Color Blast is a fundraising event supporting Delaware County Young Life; this is a chipped, timed color run; participants are asked to wear white and prepare to participate in a 5K like no other! For the safety of our racers, pets, bikes and skateboards are prohibited. Strollers are allowed but discouraged, as they may get hit with color along the way. The event is open to all ages and athletic abilities rain or shine. Please check our FB page for weather information on the morning of the event: All participants registered by May 1st receive a FREE race t-shirt and a spot in our giant paint war following the race. Registrations received after that date are not guaranteed a t-shirt or paint. Packet Pick up will be available at Smoothie King in Glen Mills on 5/18 from 5 pm - 7 pm or on race day beginning at 9 am at Garnet Valley Middle School. Suggestions on What to Bring: We do recommend that adults and kids are properly protected with sunglasses, and for toddlers and infants, maybe even something to cover their mouth. Adults may want to have this, as well. Wearing white clothes highlights the color. You may want to consider bringing a towel and a change of shoes for the car ride home. Any electronics you have on the course should be properly covered, as well. We also ask you to join us after the event for our award ceremony; prizes will be awarded to top male, top female and top runner under 18 for both male and female. 9:00 Pre-Registration Packet Pick Up and Same Day Registration (SAME DAY REGISTRATION IS $40, CASH OR CHECK ONLY) 9:45 am: Warm up 10:00 am 5K Start Mile Run immediately afterward Awards Giant Paint War All volunteers please check the volunteer sign up for your arrival times.
