The Mena Regional Health System Support Foundation is once again hosting their annual Foundation Frenzy 5K Family Color Run/Walk. The popular event will raise money for a great cause while giving participants a vibrant race to run as ‘color bomb stations’ line the course.
The third annual event will take place at Janssen Park on May 6th, beginning at 8 a.m. The event will be chip timed at no extra cost to participants. All male and female participants will be in a separate category, and first through third place medals will be given to both males and females in each age division. Trophies will be presented to the overall male and female finishers.
The cost to enter is $26 per person. Early birds registering by April 14th will received a free t-shirt. Entry on raceday will be $30 per person. Children 5 and under are free. Strollers and wagons are welcome, and children 12 and under may only participate with an adult.
Organizers encouraged participants to wear white to begin the race so you can end in a rainbow of colors. In addition to the color bomb stations, hydration stations will also be set up along the route.
