A race shirt, color pack and other small goodies are included in each runner's kit. Today is the last day for the early registration discount price of $29.99. After today the price rises to $65 with a registration deadline of August 5th. You can buy tickets directly from their website.

While these races may be fun, don't forget where the inspiration for the fun run comes from. The Hindu Holi festival celebrates the beginning of spring with colors! A time for everyone to come together, throw color in the air and in loved ones faces, and to celebrate love and forgiveness. The 5k is a unique twist on this long standing Hindu religious tradition.
