City of Hollister Recreation Wild Color 5K Run

The City of Hollister Recreation Wild Color 5K Run is a family friendly event.

Participants of all ages and fitness levels will be blasted with a safe and non-toxic colored powder several times along the route at the color stations. 

All color products are 100% natural and safe – a mixture of cornstarch and food color.

Enjoy music, food, drink and fun for the entire family at the Wild Color 5K after party.

For the competitive runner, a Timed 5K race will take place prior to the Wild Color 5K run.

Registration fees include: T-shirt, medal, race bib, and a bag of color.
