Please join us for Brooklawn's first color run!
On Friday Night, April 5th, 2019 Brooklawn Middle School will have it's first ever Color Run called the BMS Knight's Color Rush!
The runwill begin at 6pm and check-in will start at 5:30. The course includes 3 laps around the cross country track which loops around the upper and lower fields behind the school and is partially paved and partially "off-road" through the woods. It's a total of 1.5 miles. Running the full course is not required. Participants are welcome to stop sooner if they'd like or walk when needed as well.
All students are welcome as are their adults, friends and family! This is a great event for siblings, aunts, uncles, cousins, neighbors and friends from other schools to also attend. The more the merrier!
Students are currently competing to see who will win the t-shirt design contest. We will post the winning design when it's selected.
How does a Color Run work?
This is not a timed run or a race, there are no winners. All participants run for fun. What makes the run especially fun is that participants throw "color" on each other until they are completely covered! It's fun and festive and messy :)
Here's a video a teacher took from another middle school that does a good job of demonstrating how it works and how much fun it is!
The color powder is made of corn starch, permissible cosmetic grade dyes, & fragrance. According to the manufacturer it will not harm the environment and it's less likely to stain hair and clothes if maximum amount is shaken out dry before showering or washing. You can learn more about the color product used here.
