Nitty Gritty Tye Dye Run 5K

The Nitty Gritty Tye Dye Run is a 5K fun-run that is going to be held on the Emporia State University's campus on September 23, 2017 at 8:30am. During this run participants are doused from head to toe in different colors at each kilometer! The fun continues at the finish line with a gigantic “Color Festival,” using more colored powder. This event is ideal for first-time 5k runners/walkers or experienced runners who want to have some fun, and is very family-friendly! 

  Once you have navigated the course, there will be a celebration with a photo booth so that you can get a picture of you and your friends to remember this awesome experience. Even if you aren't participating in the run, you can still come out and enjoy the music and cheer on your friends and family!

The entry fee for the race is ONLY $25 for adults, and $15 for children 17 and under!! All proceeds from the event will go to the Big Brothers Big Sisters of Kansas, Emporia Childcare, and Camp Alexander.
