CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. – Calling all runners, walkers and everyone in between to suit up and get splashed at the most colorful race in town! Summit Health and the 11/30 Network of Franklin County will host the third annual Splash Your Sole 5k Saturday, May 14, at Norlo Park, 3050 Lincoln Way East.

Held rain or shine, participants will wind their way through Norlo Park, getting “splashed” with a rainbow of colors until they cross the finish line. The color is nontoxic and safe for participants and the environment.

The fun, untimed run will have 8 a.m. and 9 a.m. heats. Participants can preregister for the 5k online or register in person the day of the event. The cost is $30 and includes a t-shirt and goody bag.

Proceeds from this year’s event will benefit the Waynesboro Community Walking Trail.

“A community path for biking and walking provides residents with access to a free, safe way to improve their health, fitness and overall well-being, said Barbara Rossini, vice president of community relations at Summit Health. “In addition to increased balance and strength, physical activity translates to improved mood, a reduction in stress and a higher quality of life.”

An initiative in its infancy, the Waynesboro Community Walking Trail will connect the main public parks of Waynesboro with a safe, walkable path.
