Cross Country to Sponsor Castleton Homecoming 5K Color Run

Cross Country to Sponsor Castleton Homecoming 5K Color Run

Castleton, Vt. – This year the Castleton men's and women's cross country teams are getting involved with the homecoming weekend, sponsoring the first Castleton Homecoming 5K Color Run on Sunday, Oct. 20 at 10 am. 

During the color run, participants will be splashed with color at five different checkpoints so they are encouraged to wear white in this non-competitive event. Registration is $25.00 if completed before homecoming weekend and still only $30.00 on the day of the race. 

Proceeds from the event will go to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, in honor of Caitlin Ryan, a student-athlete on the women's cross country team who was recently diagnosed with cystic fibrosis. 

The event is limited to 100 participants, so be sure to register ahead at www.castletontickets.com. If you have questions, contact cross county coach Melissa Crossman at Melissa.Crossman@castleton.edu.
