$25 for Entry to the Sparkle Me Wild 5K and Two Color Packets ($52 Value)

On Saturday, May 11, racers dash, walk, and dance their way to the finish line of the Sparkle Me Wild 5K color run. They start out by tossing a color packet into the air at the beginning of the race, and each step gets them closer to more billowing clouds of color and glitter. Every participant receives a T-shirt and a medal at the finish line.

The first wave of runners takes off from the Wake Med soccer field in Cary, North Carolina, at 8 a.m. The race is not timed. A portion of the proceeds benefits GO FAR, a nonprofit fitness program designed to fight childhood obesity.

Sparkle Me Wild

Runners race down the road, leaving splashes of color behind them and on one another. Such is the scene at every Sparkle Me Wild, a color run event incorporating a whole lot of sparkle.

During the 5K race itself, they arm their runners with packets of pure color, made from a mix of glitter and dyed, organic cornstarch.

Though Sparkle Me Wild is a fun way for families to cut loose together, it also supports local charities, as well as GO FAR (Go Out For A Run), a national charity that fights childhood obesity.
