ColorBurst 5K, producers of paint run events across America, in conjunction with the Mahoning Valley Scrappers are delighted to announce that the Second Annual ColorBurst 5K run will take place within the grounds of Eastwood Field on Saturday August 5, 2017. This family friendly 5K fun run will be staged in partnership with the Scrappers and will be held the same day as the team's home game against the State College Spikes.

The CB5K experience brings people from all walks of life together in a technicolor burst of energy and excitement blending color, music and 'good vibes' against the backdrop of a 5K fun-run suitable for the entire family.

Where this event differs from the traditional 5Ks you may have experienced previously is in the two key elements of fun: amazing music and gallons of gloriously colored paint At each interval along the course, CB5K crew blast each participant with non-toxic, hypoallergenic, washable, water-based paint from the sidelines. Aside from this amazing twist on the typical 5K guests will be treated to an interactive pre-party and post-party at the fully branded CB5K stage with DJs, MCs, giveaways and family-focused fun.

The MV Scrappers will be working alongside main sponsors Fizek, Chevy All Stars & Braking Point Recovery Center to welcome ColorBurst 5K to Niles and a portion of the race ticket sale proceeds will go to the team's charitable partner Akron Children's Hospital-Mahoning Valley.
