The SAA Color Me Auburn 5K will take place on Aug. 24, 2013, at 6 p.m. on the Auburn University campus. The starting line will be located on the Science Center Concourse between the Quad dorms and the science buildings. We recommend you arrive from 45 to 60 minutes before the run begins to allow time for parking and stretching. During the run, participants will be showered with orange- and blue-colored powder that is non-toxic, 100 percent safe, and biodegradable.
We encourage all participants to wear white on the day of the run so the colors will really pop on your clothes! If you have sensitive eyes or wear contacts, please bring sunglasses or goggles to protect your eyes. The run will be timed, but you’re more than welcome to walk the entire route! We want you to enjoy the run and participate at your own speed. No pets are allowed at the run.
Please note that all participants under the age of 19 MUST have a waiver signed by their parent/guardian and it will need to be turned in when the registration packet is picked up.
On Friday, Aug. 23, the Auburn Alumni Center will be open from 7:45 a.m. until 4:45 p.m. for runners to check in and receive their registration materials. The alumni center is located at 317 S. College St. We encourage ALL participants to check in the day before, although we will have a brief time for checking in at the starting line before the run. Your registration bag includes a t-shirt (for the first 500 registered), coupons from local businesses, your race bib and other fun items!
