Location: ETSU campus in Johnson City, TN

Race Start: Saturday, September 27th at 9:00am

This is a fundraising event for the ETSU Chemistry Department. All proceeds will go to the Chemistry department to help purchase lab supplies and equipment that will aid in the teaching of chemistry. As for the event itself, it is a chemistry-themed color run. So the race will relate to chemistry, the dyed cornstarch will be given names of elements that are used to color fireworks:

Yellow – Sodium

Blue – Copper

Green – Barium

Red – Strontium

To make it more fun, runners are encouraged to wear lab coats, safety glasses, or any other chemistry themed apparel while running in the event. A prize will be handed out to the best chemist costume. So, here is your chance to dress like a mad scientist and, not only get away with it, but also, have the possibility to win a prize for it!

Don’t worry if you don’t like chemistry or even science; it’s okay, we won’t discriminate. Come out and enjoy a fun color run, while having the satisfaction of supporting our local ETSU Chemistry Department!
