Race start time is 10:00 a.m. at the tennis pavilion located on the back of the Darton State College campus, 2400 Gillionville Road, Albany, Georgia. The route is outlined under the Course Info tab. When you hear the loud horn go off, head to the starting line. We will be only minutes away from the start.
The 5k run will be a double loop along the back roads of the Darton property through the beautifully wooded areas and through the center of the campus in front of the student center and bookstore. The 1 Mile Fun Run course will start at the same location as the 5K but follow a single loop route in front of the soccer fields through the middle of the campus.
You have the choice of having your 5K run timed or running through the campus at a leisurely pace and not be timed. The l Mile Fun Run is not timed. Both runs are designed for you to come out and enjoy running through the campus while being showered with colored powder as you pass the various color stations. We encourage you to wear white (or very light) clothing in order to pick up as much color as possible. Choose your light colored t-shirt wisely as you will be showered with powder from six different color stations strategically placed throughout the race route. The colored powder will be in the air and everywhere so dress appropriately to cover your eyes and head should you wish to do so. Be sure to cover phone and headphone if you do not wish them to be covered in powder.
