InSports Foundation Colordash – May 21, 2016

Mark your calendars, fellow Minnesotans!

On Saturday, May 21st, InSports Foundation will be hosting their first Colordash!

What is a Colordash, you may ask?

Much like the infamous Color Run, each kilometer of the course will feature Minnesota’s own faithful event volunteers tossing colors at the participants.

By the end of the run, everyone will be covered with color! No need to worry, moms. The entire family can participate. The color is 100% non-toxic food grade cornstarch and coloring. It’s a good idea to shake off the “dust” before getting in your car, as the color tends to brush off when it’s not wet. A shower or two will get your skin back to normal, but it will wash out. Newly bleached hair can react to liquid food coloring, which is a part of the color when wet, so it is recommended you wear a hat if you have bleached, or extremely blond hair, and wash thoroughly after the Dash.

The Colordash is a non-competitive, un-timed, 5k run/walk that will be held in Saint Louis Park, MN. Yes, you read that right. You can walk it…or run it. Whichever suits you. Register for the Colordash here!

Your race registration includes an event t-shirt, race pins, and a temporary tattoo.

50% of your registration fee goes straight to local, underprivileged youth in the community!

The Colordash is a great opportunity for you and your family to be active and have fun while supporting a great cause. Introduce your kids to the race scene in a non-competitive and fun atmosphere. Who knows? They might get hooked!

You will be able to pick-up registration packets at 7 a.m. The dash begins at 9 a.m. Be sure to get there early to join in on the dance competitions, hula-hoop contest, plus much more with awesome swag giveaways! The race begins and finishes on West End Blvd. near Gamble Drive in St. Louis Park, MN. You can see the complete race route here!
