The Crosspointe subdivision around Halley Elementary School will be awash in color Saturday, March 9, with a color misting, obstacles and a road course for more traditional runners and walkers, offering professional ChronoTrack timing system for accuracy. The school's Parent Teacher Organization invites everyone to join the festivities to raise money for classroom technology during its Halley Race for Technology 5k and Color Fun Run.

"We hope the community will join us for a great event, for a great cause," said Juliana Stroup, PTO president. The event is sponsored by Vulcan Materials Company and offers something for all ages and energy levels. For more traditional runners and walkers, the 5k race kicks off at 8:30 a.m. and features a fast road course through the beautiful Crosspointe neighborhood. For children ages 12 and younger, at 9:30 a.m. the Color Fun Run with obstacles and crazy color misting starts. The race takes place at 8850 Cross Chase Circle, Lorton.
