AUSTIN, MN — Things will certainly be bright in Austin this Sunday.
Several organizations, including the Hormel Institute, will be hosting Austin’s first “Color Dash” 5K Walk/Fun Run.
It’s scheduled for 2 p.m. and will begin at the historic downtown power plant.
Organizers say it’s something that has been gaining in popularity across the country and they’re glad it’s happening locally.
“They use food grade corn starch that uses food coloring and they dash you with colors at five different stations along the 5K route and some people by the end of it are just covered in different colors and then they do a big color explosion at the end,” The Hormel Institute’s Communication Representative Tim Ruzek said.
The event will benefit the Hormel Institute’s cancer research along with other non-profits in Austin.
