"The Color Run" 5K marathon is less about competition and more about exercise and enjoying a color-infused day. The event, which is being held in over 30 major cities, includes people of all different speeds, ages, shapes and sizes beginning at the starting line in a white shirt and getting pummeled with colorful dust at each kilometer. If you make it to the finish line, a final explosion of color powder awaits you. Though people can run for charities, this unique marathon encourage all walks of life to exercise.
