Following the annual Color Run, Ypsi will once again be covered in rainbows of colorful footprints. From Depot Town to EMU Campus to Huron Street and River Street, the course is marked off; and at every mile, runners race through gauntlets of flying paint. The race caters to runners of all levels, though historically, more than half of the participants are first-time 5k runners. Cleaning stations provided at the finish.

Registration required. $45/per person. All proceeds go to SOS Community Services, Ypsilanti Community Schools Foundation, Growing Hope, Michigan Ability Partners, Ypsilanti Meals on Wheels, and more. 8am. thecolorrun.com
