A little color makes everything better; that goes double for 5K races. That's the philosophy behind The Color Dash 5K, a national series of races that leave clouds of chromatic dust in their wakes. Outfitted in white clothing, runners set off from the starting line as blank slates, but that soon changes; along the route, they'll get blasted with handfuls of safe, non-toxic color powder, which turns their once-pristine outfits into abstract portraits of their pets. The races are certainly fun, but that's not all they are—each event partners with a community charity or nonprofit, raising funds and awareness for a good cause.
