A 5K run to benefit the Champlain Valley Union (CVU) turf field project will take place on Saturday, Oct. 26 at 8:30 am at the high school in Hinesburg. Join like-minded community members on “Make a Difference Day” to help raise the funds necessary to replace two heavily-damaged sports fields with synthetic turf fields and install a 1,000-seat bleacher structure and lighting to one of the two fields.
Paint the Pastures, the 5K family fun run along the CVU cross country trails, is so named because participants get splattered with paint as they run. Runners will want to wear old clothes (preferably a white t-shirt) and a pair of cheap sunglasses or goggles, as this will be a very colorful event! The first 200 registrants will receive a free t-shirt and one packet of paint. Registration is $45 adult, $35 student, and $25 for those 10 and under. Additional color packs and sunglasses will be available for purchase at the event. Registration begins at 7:15 am.
