The Color Run

Where: Nationwide

Participants in this 5K start dressed in head-to-toe white, but finish looking as vivid and paint-splattered as a Jackson Pollock painting. At regular intervals along the route, volunteers douse runners with colored powder (yellow, blue, green pink and—at the finish line—a “color extravaganza”). It’s all about fun and positive energy at this race in which more than 60 percent of entrants are first-timers. Next Race: August 2013
