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
