The Running Rainbow

The Color Run, “The Happiest 5k on the Planet,” makes its vibrant return to Ypsilanti for another explosion of color and celebration.

The race caters to runners of all levels- from couch potatoes to seasoned athletes. Historically, more than half of the participants are first-time 5K runners.

Come dressed in all white and hop, skip or dance your way through 5 kilometers of color zones (literal explosions of paint) toward the Finish Festival, presenting music, dancing, more color blasts, and eventually, cleaning stations.

Registration required. Individual runner, $50/Team of 4+ runners, $45. 8am.

Riverside Park, 515 E. Cross St., Ypsilanti. 855-MOCOLOR. thecolorrun.com
