Jackson Elementary’s Color Run attracted several hundred multi-hued joggers

(Riverton, Wyo.) – The annual Color Run sponsored by the Jackson School Parents Involved in Education (PIE) group drew a big crowd Friday evening. Several hundred joggers lined up to check in while kids played on a bouncy slide and waited eagerly for their packet of colored corn starch. As the run began, many in the crowd opened thier bags and let the color run with the joggers. By the first “color station” along North 8th West, many were already brightly colored in hues of hot pink, lemon yellow, brilliant orange and two shades of bright blue and turquoise. By the end of the race, most looked like tie-dyed people. It was all in great fun and to raise funds for the Jackson School PIE.

Working at the first color station along North 8th West were Bessie Cantrell and Blake Rummery-Rico, members of the 4H Junior Leadership who teamed up to staff the color stations along the route.

Riverton Police School Resource Officers provided security for the event to keep the runners safe from traffic.

Here are the results:
