Running a 5K race can turn people different colors — red, mostly.
At the annual Color Run, which returns to Osceola Heritage Park on Saturday, racers can turn all sorts of colors — blue, green, yellow, purple, or a mix of them all.
In the Color Run, at each kilometer mark participants are doused from head to toe in a different colored powder. Participants wear white at the starting line and finish the race plastered in color.
There’s still time to get in on the multi-colored 5K fun run at the Color Run, which begins at 9 a.m. on Saturday. Packages cost $29.99 and $34.99 and there are still space available in the race.
The Color Run’s mission is to bring people together to make the world a happier, healthier place. Once the race is over, the fun continues at the Finish Festival, a larger-than-life party with music, dancing, photo ops, activity booths, vendors, and more color throws.
With no winners or official times, The Color Run caters to everyone — first time runners to seasoned athletes, and aims to be a catalyst that inspires participants to live a more active lifestyle. To date, The Color Run has donated more than $5 million to charity, and this year is raising money to fight childhood cancer. To register, go to the Color Run website.
