The Color Run

When: Sun., Aug. 3, 8 a.m. 2014

Show up in all white, but prepare to leave in a rainbow of colors. Beginning the day with music, dancing and warmup stretching downtown, the Color Run brings together first-time runners and seasoned athletes for an untimed 5k focused on fun, with participants getting sprayed in colored cornstarch dye at every kilometer mark. Winding through historic Browne's Addition and back, the Spokane event ends with a “Finish Festival” of powdered dye tossed into the air. The internationally touring event has chosen to partner with the YMCA of Spokane for this race, making a post-race donation to the organization. If you haven’t experienced one of these incredibly popular nontraditional 5Ks yet, the Color Run is one of this year’s last opportunities to do so in the Inland Northwest.
