  • FIRST RULE: Don't worry - be Happy! Run or Dye is for everyone. No need to worry about if you are too fast, too slow, too old, too young, or too sexy! Just come experience the magic of the most colorful 5K this world has to offer!
  • SECOND RULE: You are your own canvas - Wearing all white may show off the color--or get costume-CRAZY wearing that old wedding dress, 80's leg warmers, or those snakeskin pajamas. See you at the starting line!
  • LAST RULE: Get ready to DYE and go to Heaven! The Dye Zone is where the magic happens! Our Color Crew is specially trained to administer Random Acts of Color with total efficiency. (HINT: We also love subliminal messages, such as: begging and pleading, striking that pose that makes us all uncomfortable, or dancing like a maniac. These are all code for "HIT ME WITH COLOR!")

Location: Middle Georgia Regional Airport (Actual course subject to change)


We are excited to be partnering with Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Heart of Georgia!

Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Heart of Georgia

In 201. nearly 1,00. children in 1. Central Georgia counties were matched with a Big Brother or Big Sister. With collaboration in the community, Big Brothers Big Sisters is driving the educational achievement of children in Central Georgia. 

Our programs focus on the most vulnerable youth in our community - children of incarcerated parents, children of Hispanic heritage, children of military parents, and youth at risk of truancy and delinquency. 

The 201. local evaluation showed that matched "Littles" in our program: 98. maintained or improved their grades, 100. exhibited higher levels of self esteem, and 98. went to school more often.
