ST. CLOUD — A unique 5K made it’s way to the St. Cloud area, full of fun, music and color.

Hundreds packed St. Cloud State University to join in the Color Vibe, a three mile run designed to paint you full of colors.

Ryan Hall is the Event Coordinator for the Color Vibe. He says by putting this twist in, people find it more fun than exercise.

“Some people may not want to run three miles but you add a little color, throw in some music, and all of a sudden, they’re a little more excited about it.”

The race is a run-at-your-own-pace course, and you can run as an individual, or team.

From yellow, blue, pink and green colors would fly around every corner of the race route.

“Our powder is dyed corn starch,” says Hall. “100 percent safe and biodegradable. It brushes right off.”

Not only does the money collected go into the colors, shirts and gear. The Color Vibe also helps out its charity Central Minnesota Habitat for Humanity.

And if you have never ran this race before, the experience is unlike any other.

Kristy Ahlbrecht and her son Logan ran in today’s race. She says it’s a well put together organization and fun for the whole family.

“It’s a well organized event. It’s just a lot of fun and a lot of fun for the kids even.”
