Color Me Green


​​Color Me Green is a Purdue Extension/Indiana 4-H Youth Development sponsored color run being held across Indiana between March - July. As in other color runs that have become popular across the country, runners will be showered with colored powder at various stations along the run. Color Me Green will be using specifically green dyes for the event. The race is untimed and has no winners or prizes—it's all done in the spirit of fun! Come join us at one or more of the County Events listed below!


Runners/walkers of all ages and skill levels are encouraged to participate. Each site has its own requirements for registration, so be sure to read the specifics for each county event in the table below. Registration requirements range from donating canned goods to signing up ahead of time and paying a nominal entry fee. Proceeds benefit local food pantries and vary by location.
