The Sports Authority 5K Color Fun Run

Instead of emphasizing the fastest running times, The Sports Authority 5K Color Fun Run focuses on something else: fun. During the family-friendly event, participants jog around the fairgrounds armed with packets of nontoxic colored powder, dousing fellow runners in all manner of hues. But even those who are the best at dodging don't stand a chance while sprinting past the four color stations along the route, at which volunteers have been trained to make runners look like they battled a rainbow and lost. In addition to the sound of their own joyous yelps, participants run to a heart-pumping soundtrack created by a live DJ. At the conclusion of the 5K, runners can boogie along with a live band and sample food and drinks from concession stands. Portions of proceeds will be donated to a local charity.

For those who take care of their overall well-being with exercise, yoga, and balanced nutrition
