- $35 for one entry to the Color Dash 5K on Saturday, April 18 ($45 value)
Runners meet up at Tumbleweed Park on Saturday, April 18. Packet pickup is at 8:30 a.m., and the dash begins at 10:30 a.m. Entry includes a Color Dash T-shirt. Runners don bright white shirts, which will be coated in pinks, yellows, blues, and reds throughout. An after-party follows the Color Dash. Check the website for more information.
Though some participants choose to run and others to walk, everybody who participates in the Color Dash experiences a transformation. As participants make their way through the 5K Color Dash and UVSplash courses they are subjected to bursts of color; additional events include the Bubble Bash by Color Dash and Zombies by Color Dash, which adds the undead to the equation. Though the color will wash away, the memories will remain forever in the minds of all participants who aren't goldfish. Proceeds from Color Dash events benefit local children's charities and organizations.
