Oaklyn will host its Third Annual Color 5K Run and Color 1.5 mile Run/Walk on Sunday, Oct. 1, according to OMAYSC and Friends of the Oaklyn Memorial Library which sponsor the event as a kick off to the Annual Town Picnic.
Last year’s hugely successful event drew over 200 participants, young and old, and more are expected this year.
In the untimed 5K Color Run and Color 1.5 Mile Fun Run/Walk participants will be randomly splashed with a rainbow of non-toxic, biodegradable colors by volunteers on the sidelines.
Team and Family groups are encouraged in both categories.
Registration is now open with online registration and paper forms available at the run’s website, https://RunSignUp.com/Race/NJ/OaklynColor5K. Registration forms and race information is also available at the Oaklyn Memorial Library. On Line registrations can also be done at the Library. Paper registrations can be dropped at the Library or the Oaklyn Municipal Building.
Registration fees for the 5K races is $30. Tee shirts are not guaranteed but based on the date of registration. The fee for the Color 1.5 Mile Fun Run/ Walk is $20 without a shirt and $25 with a shirt. Fees have been discounted for team and family groups. See the website.
The Color 5K and 1.5 Fun Run/Walk will start at 8:30 am at the Oaklyn School on Kendall blvd.
Proceeds from the event benefit the Oaklyn Municipal Alliance-Youth Services Commission and the Friends of Oaklyn Memorial Library.
