    This is an opportunity for people of all ages to join in an explosion of color with friends and family. The 5K course will be from the fairgrounds to Jacobs Beach and back. As you run or walk the course, you will be bombarded with color. This is not your grandma’s traditional 5K, although she is certainly welcome to participate. The course will be set up so you can bypass the color stations if you wish to do so.

    This year there will be chip timing for runners, and the prizes will be for the first male and first female across the finish line. Serious runners should line up at the front of the starting pack.

    THIS WILL BE THE FINAL EVENT FOR GUILFORD’S DAY WEEK, CONCEIVED AND LED BY DAY YOUTH, IN WHICH THE COLOR PURPLE IS USED TO SYMBOLIZE YOUTH SOBRIETY. THE YOUTH USE PURPLE TO VISIBLY COMMIT TO LIVING CLEAN, AND SEE THAT THEY ARE NOT ALONE, BUT THAT THEY ARE IN THE MAJORITY. ADULTS USE PURPLE TO DEMONSTRATE THEIR SUPPORT FOR GUILFORD’S YOUTH AND THEIR VALUES. EVERYONE COMMITS TO HELPING EACH OTHER, ESPECIALLY THOSE WHO NEED ENCOURAGEMENT AND RECOVERY SUPPORT. The youth of DAY conceived the color run several years ago as a way to increase community participation in the Lifelinx Recovery 5K, and to help Lifelinx with its fundraising. By participating in this event, you are helping people in recovery on their path to a good life.

    Lifelinx Corp. is a 501c(3) non-profit addictions recovery support service with offices at 2785 Boston Post Road in Guilford, and sober houses in Guilford and Madison. Lifelinx’s mission is to reduce substance abuse through relapse prevention by providing a variety of peer-driven recovery support services to people in and seeking recovery from substance use disorders.

    The mission of Guilford DAY is to create a healthier community for youth by increasing developmental opportunities and personal strengths and thus reducing youth substance abuse.
