Sparkle Me Wild 5K
Runners race down the road, leaving splashes of color behind them and on one another. Such is the scene at every Sparkle Me Wild 5K, a color run event incorporating a whole lot of sparkle.
The event's organizers like to create themes for their family-focused events, such as their inaugural Fall Festival. In addition to Richmond Race, the festival includes family-friendly entertainment such as rides, food vendors, face painting, and music from live DJs. During the 5K race itself, they arm their runners with packets of pure color, made from a mix of glitter and dyed, organic cornstarch.
Though Sparkle Me Wild is a fun way for families to cut loose together, it also supports local charities, as well as GO FAR (Go Out For A Run), a national charity that fights childhood obesity.
