Color Me Cooper 5K/10K Challenge Course

Color Me Cooper Challenge Course is an off-road run with fitness challenges along the way. There will be obstacles to climb over, crawl under, balance across and more. Plus you get showered in all natural colors at every checkpoint and a color burst at the end! This will be a great and fun outing for the entire family! 5k or 10k options are available and it’s open for adults and kids. For the young ones, there is the one mile Kid’s Run where they will encounter easier obstacles and still get colored!
