The Cedar Ridge High School Raider Paint Run is an un-timed run with colored powder zones and a fun finish celebration. All participants will start with their white Raider Paint Run shirt and finish plastered in colored powder. The run is more about having fun than running fast, so grab your friends and family and join in the fun. Stick around after the run for the Raiderfest with food, live bands, and bbq from 11am-4pm.
All proceeds from the Raider Paint Run will benefit the Cedar Ridge High School Project Graduation and the graduating seniors. Project Graduation is an all-night lock-in party held the night of graduation, so seniors have a fun, safe, drug and alcohol free environment for the graduating senior’s last social event together as a class.
Event details and schedule
Long Course - 3 miles
The un-timed course starts near the Lake View Pavilion and goes around the lake twice, passing through at least 2 paint zones, and finishing near the lake for the finish celebration. This is not a race so go at your pace and enjoy the course.
Short Course - 1.5 miles
The un-timed course starts near the Lake View Pavilion and goes around the lake once, passing through at least 2 paint zones, and finishing near the lake for the finish celebration. This is not a race so go at your pace and enjoy the course.
Each paint zone will have volunteers who will throw non-toxic colored powder that was made by the students at CRHS’s culinary kitchen. The volunteers will do their best to throw the powder at your torso, but wind and other factors can cause the powder to get on your face. Wearing goggles, sunglasses, and other eye wear have been worn at other runs that have flying colored powder. The paint zones can be bypassed completely.
At the end of the run each finisher will receive a bag of powder for the color celebration. The finish celebration will occur every 10-15 minutes or as the crowd gets bigger. The announcer will help coordinate the celebration by counting down from 10 to 0 and the colored powder will fly!
There will be snacks, water, and Gatorade at the finish.
The Raider Paint Run is just the beginning of the day. Bands will begin playing at 11am and continuing until 4pm. There will be a bbq cookout and food will be available to buy starting at 11am. Lots of family fun.
