Paint the town

With sunny blue skies overhead, a line of runners and bikers, all in dazzling white shirts line up across Arbaney Park in Basalt on Sunday morning. After a quick countdown, Color Run racers of all speeds are off across the grass. By the time runners loop back to Basalt Elementary School, they have a splash of blue chalk coating their white shirts. And as they loop the track Basalt High Schoolʼs National Honor Society members are cheering as they throw pink powdered chalk into the air. After completing the 5K route participants are smiling through skin coated with blue, purple, pink and yellow hues. All proceeds benefit the Aspen Hope Center, which provides mental health services to the Roaring Fork Valley.
