Dyeing to run: Color Splash may surpass 1,000 runners

ASHLAND — The Color Splash 5K Run expected to bring more than 1,000 runners to Central Park on Saturday morning.

King’s Daughters Orthopaedics and Sports Medicine and Marshall Orthopaedics are race sponsors. The race begins at 8 a.m. in Ashland Central Park (by the concession stand at the end of Chuck Woolery Boulevard). 

The course is flat with long straightaways through downtown Ashland. Runners will start and finish at The Park Place. The course will be well marked and runners pass a water station twice. 

“You can walk, jog, run or crawl the 5K,” said Sabrina Esenbock, race coordinator. “The race will not be timed, but runners should be ready to have fun and get splashed from head to toe with colored dye at the finish. Those who want to know their time should bring a stopwatch.”

She noted runners are encouraged to wear white to get the full effect of the color dye.
