Marquette runners will be blasted with color tomorrow

Runners will be showing off a rainbow of colors tomorrow for the Run or Dye 5K in Mattson Lower Harbor Park.

Marquette is one of 200 cities that have hosted a color run. Participants will run through the city and will get sprayed by colorful corn starch dye at five points throughout the race. This was the first year where runners could cast their vote to choose what colors they’ll be covered with during the 5K. After the 5K, participants can take part in the Run or Dye ‘Dye Festival’, where they’ll be blasted again by an explosion of colors to celebrate life, friendship, fitness and fun.

The 5K beings at 9 a.m. tomorrow. A portion of the process from the event will be donated to the YMCA of Marquette County.
