Police: Color 5 Mile run scheduled for this weekend is a scam

BRPD says Color 5 Mile is a scam BRPD says Color 5 Mile is a scam
BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

The Baton Rouge Police Department is informing the public of a scam in which individuals are promoting a Color 5 mile run for this coming Saturday morning.

Police are asking the public to avoid signing up for this run because it is a scam. 

According to officials with BRPD, the run does not exist and people have called them to complain.

This appears to be similar to the Color Run, which happened in Baton Rouge on Saturday, April 4, 2015. The Color Run is a legitimate event and is not associated with The Color 5 Mile run.

If you are a victim of this scam please contact your local authority to report this incident.
