The Cedar Ridge High School Raider Color Run is a 5K un-timed run with a couple of color zones and a color celebration at the end. All participants will start with their white Raider Color Run shirt and finish plastered in color. The run is more about having fun than running fast, so grab your friends and family and join in the fun. Stick around after the run for the Raiderfest with food, live bands, and bbq cook-off from 10am-4pm.
All proceeds from the Raider Color Run will benefit the Cedar Ridge High School Project Graduation and the graduating seniors. Project Graduation is an all-night lock-in party held the night of graduation, so seniors have a fun, safe, drug and alcohol free environment for the graduating senior’s last social event together as a class.
Course – The un-timed course starts on the Cedar Ridge High School track and winds around the CRHS campus with two loops, passing through 2 color zones, and finishing in front of the school. This is not a race so go at your pace and enjoy the course.
Color Zones – Each color zone will have volunteers who will throw non-toxic colored powder that was made by the students at CRHS’s culinary kitchen. The volunteers will do their best to throw the powder at your torso, but wind and other factors can cause the powder to get on your face. Wearing goggles, sunglasses, and other eye wear have been worn at other runs that have flying colored powder. The color zones can be bypassed completely.
Color Celebration – At the end of the run each finisher will receive a bag of powder for the color celebration. The color celebration will occur every 10-15 minutes or as the crowd gets bigger. The announcer will help coordinate the celebration by counting down from 10 to 0.
Refreshments – There will be snacks, water, and Gatorade at the finish.
Raiderfest – The Raider Color Run is just the beginning of the day. Bands will begin playing at 10am and continuing until 4pm. There will be a bbq cook-off and food will be available to buy starting at noon. Lots of family fun.
