Run or Dye is making race running a little more colorful, one major city at a time. This 5K is divided up into four separate courses of varying lengths, each designated by a separate color??which also reflects the color of safe, eco-friendly powered dye the participants get splashed with. At the end of the race, they'll cross into the aptly-named Dye Zone?a polychromatic free-for-all, where fluorescent color is thrown freely from all sides, allowing runners to splash their fellow runners or get colorful revenge on their friends, family members, and any cranky art-history teachers that happen to be walking by.

Unlike some races that rank runners by time, Run or Dye only measures success in color and fun. While the safe-to-eat dyes should wash out of clothing, runners are encouraged to wear things they don't mind getting dirty, preferably in white, gray, or another neutral color to give the dyes maximum visibility.

United Social Sports brings recreational athletes together to socialize and showcase their hand-eye coordination. Free agents or team-sized groups register for the organization’s casual coed leagues dedicated to traditional sports such as softball and volleyball as well as carnival games such as cornhole and skee-ball. Each league hosts 6–8 weekly matches, which culminate in a final tournament and an end-of-season party—much like youth-sports leagues, but with postgame drink specials.

Q&A with James Mundia, Director Of Training

When and how did you first develop a passion for your work?

One of my first jobs was a youth soccer coach for 4 to 6-year-olds at an indoor soccer facility. I fell in love with coaching and helping kids get better at the game. That continued when I took on older kids, eventually coaching at the high school and college level, where I am now. Soccer is a unique sport in that there are so many different qualities needed to be a successful player, and I am passionate about helping families unlock the codes to achieve that.

I'm a first-timer. How do you get me ready for the experience?

Kids should come ready to play with soccer gear on, their ball, shin guards, a spare T-shirt, and water or a sports drink. We'll be doing a lot of work, most of it with the ball, so they should be ready to run and work hard.

What?s your favorite part of your job?

I love meeting new families and helping them get the most out of their soccer experience. The kids are always amazing and I like challenging them to become better players and better people.
