The Color Dash is a 5K color fun run/walk with an emphasis on fun. Participants should be more concerned with being bathed in the best rainbow of colors and laughing all the way to the finish line. Whoever has the most fun wins, meaning victories will be plentiful.
During the run, you will get covered in non-toxic, 100 percent biodegradable powder made in the USA. The powder will be thrown by volunteers who are all to eager to use you as their own personal canvas. Each kilometer completed will bring a new color to the mix. There will not be any physical obstacles on course. Direct physical contact between runners and color throwers is prohibited.
