Runners started as a blank canvas. But they ended up as colorful works of art covered in a rainbow mix of bright colors at the 2016 Splatter Dash!
The October 16th race to benefit Children and Families First Delaware took place at the scenic Oberod Estate in Centerville, DE, and included about 100 spirited runners and seven color stations where racers were doused generously in colored, biodegradable powder. Shrieks and giggles could be heard all along the race route as sprinters jogged their way to the finish.
Volunteers shooting the colors didn’t always have perfect aim; so runners were encouraged to wear sunglasses and bandanas over their mouths. Many students from Padua Academy and University of Delaware volunteered to splatter passersby, but they got messy, too!
