Ashland, Ky. — King’s Daughters Sports Medicine and Marshall Orthpaedics will sponsor the Color Splash 5K Run Saturday, July 27 in Ashland. The race begins at 8 a.m. at The Park Place, 1701 Central Ave.

The course is flat with long straightaways through downtown Ashland. Runners will start and finish at The Park Place. The course will be well marked and runners pass a water station twice.

“You can walk, jog, run or crawl the 5K,” said Sabrina Esenbock, race coordinator. “The race will not be timed, but runners should be ready to have fun and get splashed from head to toe with colored dye at the finish. Those who want to know their time should bring a stopwatch.” She noted runners are encouraged to wear white to get the full effect of the color dye.

“We are very pleased that Marshall Orthopaedics has joined forces with King’s Daughters orthopaedics program,” said Ryan Ison, service line director of KDMC’s Orthopaedics and Neurosciences. “We truly appreciate their efforts in co-sponsoring this fun event for our community.”

Registration fee is $15 before July 19 and $20 thereafter. Pre-registration packets will be available from 4 to 7 p.m., Friday, July 26 at KDMC Outpatient Service Center, 480 23rd St. in Ashland. Registration is also available online at tristateracer.com.

Race T-shirts will be available for the first 150 people registered. For more information about the race, contact Esenbock at (606) 408-9761 or sabrina.esenbock@kdmc.kdhs.us.
