- $29 for registration to the Phoenix Flavor Run on Saturday, February 28 ($50 value)
Runners and walkers clad in white clothes tackle the 5K course or a 1-mile course as volunteers shower them in fruit-flavored powders—including blueberry, orange, banana, grape, strawberry, and watermelon. After the race, guests converge at the Post-Run Flavor Zone to revel in fruit, vendors, live entertainment, and kids’ activities. Proceeds of this race benefit the Playworks Arizona.

- Get a Taste for the Race: the 5K course is lined with stations where volunteers launch handfuls of colorful fruit-flavored corn-starch powder at passing runners
- The Purpose of the Flavoring: the run's FAQ page notes that "it doesn't make your mouth feel like you just ate a handful of sand"
