Color…

Participants ran from the Rio Blanco County Courthouse lawn to the 6th Street Field, where they completed an obstacle course and got colored with dye. The end of the event, which was part of the ERBM Recreation and Park District’s Meeker Appreciation Day, featured a “color explosion,” in which each participant threw a cup full of dye into the air to create the colorful display. More than 50 runners took part.
