Kiowa County Relay for Life COLOR RUN

Kiowa County Relay for Life requests OKMRC volunteers for the Color Run!

The Relay for Life requests OKMRC VOLUNTEERS to assist at color stations to throw powder and serve as road guards. Medical staff providing first aid is also requested. If you are interested in this event, please email Rebecca at or call 580-704-8576. Here is information about the event:

“Rainbows of Hope” is the theme for 18th Annual American Cancer Society Kiowa County Relay for Life. The event is set for Friday April 7, 2017 with opening remarks at 6:30 pm.  A new event that will brighten this year’s relay is a COLOR RUN! 

The color run is sponsored by the Kiowa County Coalition and will precede the evening’s festivities on Friday April 7th at 5:30 pm, with registration starting at 4:30 pm. The race will begin at the northwest corner of the courthouse square on 3rd and Main in Hobart, and will follow a course around Hunter Lake.  

Along the way, stations will be set up to greet the runners/walkers who will be doused from head to toe in a vibrant colored powder made of food-grade corn starch.  With only two rules, the idea is easy to follow:

  1. Wear white at the starting line or the t-shirt provided for the event.
  2. Finish plastered in color!

All 5K Runners, 5K Bike Riders and 1 Mile Walkers/Runners are invited to register. Fees are $25 for the 5K Run/Ride and $20 for the 1 Mile Walk/Run.  If you are currently signed up with a Relay for Life Team, you can participate at no charge. There will be race awards for first, second and third timed place in all three categories. Registration fee includes an event t-shirt and a goody bag. Everyone is encouraged to wear the event t-shirt provided or a white t-shirt so that the color-throws will adhere!  Sunglasses will also be provided for eye protection. Registration can be completed by either calling 580-726-3383 or register online at:
