Fun, family, and entertainment—these are the three pillars of the Color Blaze 5K. And of course, these pillars are splattered with color. For during the race, participants walk, jog, or sprint through through clouds of blue, green, red, pink, orange, yellow, white, and purple powder playfully lobbed at them by onlookers. The result is a crowd unified by the multihued masterpieces on their shirts. Adding to the fun, the 5K isn't timed, which allows participants to zero in on camaraderie and stop in the middle of the course to discuss the genius of Jackson Pollock. An after-party springs to life at the finish line, with portions of the race's proceeds going toward local charities.
