Quick—what are the colors of a rainbow? If you hesitated in answering that question, participating in an all-ages Gnarly Neon 5K could provide you with a wearable cheat sheet. During the race, spectators armed with nontoxic, washable powder make it rain blue, pink, yellow, green, and orange on runners as a live DJ pumps out high-energy beats. Each Gnarly Neon race raises money for charities like Children's Miracle Network and Big Brothers Big Sisters.
