Run or Dye is making race running a little more colorful, one major city at a time. This 5K is divided up into four separate courses of varying lengths, each designated by a separate color—which also reflects the color of safe, eco-friendly powered dye the participants get splashed with. At the end of the race, they'll cross into the aptly named Dye Zone—a polychromatic free-for-all where fluorescent color is thrown freely from all sides, allowing runners to splash their fellow runners or get colorful revenge on their friends, family members, and any cranky art-history teachers that happen to be walking by.
Unlike some races that rank runners by time, Run or Dye only measures success in color and fun. While the safe-to-eat dyes should wash out of clothing, runners are encouraged to wear things they don't mind getting dirty, preferably in white, gray, or another neutral color to give the dyes maximum visibility.
When you need something to do on your day off, visit The Color Dash in Midland and indulge in a day filled with fun and adventure.
Parking is plentiful, so visitors can feel free to bring their vehicles.
The Color Dash is obviously the place to be, so get your calendar out and make plans to visit it soon.
Part color-powder fight and part animal-themed 5K, the Jungle Fever 5K Colorful Run For Your Life Series brings runners of all ages together for a morning of relaxed and fun racing. Volunteer "animals" surprise runners with splashes of color as they leisurely make their way through an untimed 5K race. Outlandish outfits are encouraged—either wild animal-themed outfits or all-white clothing. The whole affair ends in a colorful splash as runners lob handfuls of colored powder at one another in a color fight.
Former professional diver Henry Richardson created DEFINE in 2009 as a way to share what he had learned while healing his body from diving injuries.
In 2011, dancer and teacher Erin O'Leary Stewart joined the team and was instrumental in expanding Henry's vision, including more locations, adding more programs, and introducing DEFINE foods.
Together, they share their passion for health and fitness through the restorative powers of Pilates, yoga, ballet, and barre.
