Color Fun Run and Walk returns to the Hopewell Valley on June 12

Be wonderfully colored at the second annual Color Fun Run & Walk, a fundraiser organized by the Hopewell Valley Arts Council, at Woolsey Park on Sunday, June 12 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Participants of all ages can walk, run or anything in between as they watch themselves transform into a Technicolor masterpiece while supporting the Hopewell Valley non-profit arts association. Registration is now open.

“We are excited to bring back our Color Fun Run & Walk!” said Carol Lipson, executive director of the HV Arts Council. “Last year’s event was sold out, and we all had so much fun! Like the Hindu festival of Holi, which inspired color runs around the world, our event brings all ages together to celebrate and promote health, happiness and creativity.

The morning begins with a welcome warm-up and full body yoga. Then, multiple waves of runners and walkers will be sent down the fun course past five color blow stations where volunteers shower participants in food-grade tinted cornstarch. The course ends with a closing dance party and a final group draw.

The Color Fun Run and Walk, as the name suggests, is synonymous with fun. If one can walk for two miles and have a good time, this event is perfect. It’s not timed. There is no pressure. Capture lasting memories at the colorful selfie station. To refresh yourself, crushed ice will be available for purchase.

Tickets start at $20 / Sunday, June 12, 2022 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. / Woolsey Park, 221 Washington Crossing Pennington Rd, Titusville, NJ / Tickets are limited. Please register before June 3, 2022 if you want an event t-shirt. For tickets, FAQs and more, please visit
