Louisa Lions show true colors

A rainbow of powder covers the runners at the end of the third annual Lions Run Wild Color Run on March 30.

Runners of all ages gathered at Louisa County High School on March 30 to participate in the third annual Lions Run Wild Color Run.

Around 150 participants ran in the event, which helps raise money for physical education programs at Louisa County Public Schools.

“It’s a great event,” LCHS junior Taylor Talley, one of the event’s organizers, said. “It was great to see people come out and support the phys-ed programs.”

Talley, who was recently crowned Miss Louisa, has participated in the color run in years past, but was unable to do so this year following ACL surgery. Wanting to be involved, she volunteered to help plan the event.

The event consisted of two separate runs: A one-mile course designed for younger participants and a 3.1-mile course for everyone else. Along the way, runners were sprayed with colored dye and powder at several spots along the route.
