In the Nathan Weiss Memorial Cougar Color 5K, you will be splashed with color! Repeatedly! That is, with non-toxic, fluorescent-colored cornstarch, as you run on the beautiful Kean campus. This race is an official USA Track & Field 5K with prizes for best times on a flat, fast course. Following the race, join us for our Fall Color Festival featuring music, food, a photo booth, face painting, and many more fun and family-friendly activities.
