This event is held rain or shine. The Course: Our 5K will take participants up Cemetary Rd in Charlton and through the orchards at Fay Mountain Farm.  A 1-mile route (approximately) will be available as well for those wishing to take a shorter route. Please wear supportive shoes, watch your footing as you run or walk, and be mindful if you have pets or children with you.  Due to the course terrain this year, we are not advising you walk or jog with strollers.  If you shoose to bring one, please be mindful some areas might be challenging to navigate. Parking Parking will be available in the surrounding area.  Shuttle service will be provided from designated locations.  Additional details will be available closer to the event. T-shirts T-shirts will be made available to each participant at early check-in and on the day off the event, while supplies last. Early Check-in Details regarding early check-in will be emailed to participants prior to the event.  How Do I Prepare for the Color? First, you don’t need to be a runner! This event is about fun, awareness, family and health. Walkers, have no fear! The event is not timed and the only expectation we have is for everyone to have fun. There are some things you should probably keep in mind, though: While the color powder DOES wash off, it tends to temporarily stain clothes and shoes (especially blue!). For this reason, we advise you to keep your ‘Sunday best’ at home. Certainly, wear white – it makes the experience so much better – but bring shorts, running pants, or T-shirts that you don’t need for a job interview on Monday morning. (If you signed up in time, you will get a T-shirt to wear that day! Protect your face. This isn’t mandatory, but we might advise you to wear cheap, oversized sunglasses, headbands, or some other form of protecting your eyes and mouth. The color will not intentionally be thrown above the shoulders, but it is powder and it tends to drift. There WILL be alternatives to going through the color stations. So if you are bringing children, have pets, strollers, or just don’t feel like becoming a human tie-dye, that’s OK, too. You will simply make your away around the color barriers along the route. Leave your iPod or iPhone in the car! Or, at the very least, protect your electronics by putting it in a zip lock bag. Otherwise, it will get ‘decorated’! Bring a towel or a change of clothes. When you’re ready to go home, you don’t want to re-upholster your car seats. We obtain our color from PurColor, Inc., based out of Colorado.  Their celebration powder is made up of cornstarch and FD&C colorants. You can view their MDS sheet here.

The Town of Charlton Massachusetts was founded in 1755 and is located in the south-central portion of Worcester County and is less than 50 miles away from Boston. Search CharltonMA.com to find local businesses, event listings, Charlton homes for sale and local town resources.

History of the town includes James Capen Adams also known as "Grizzly Adams" who was one of the last mountain men. Adams spent eight years in the Rocky Mountains.

In 1860 Adams died with his boots on and was buried in the Old Burying Ground in Charlton.

History of the town also includes that of Dr. William Thomas Green Morton whose experiments with ether first made anesthesia possible during surgical operations.
