Are You Ready, St. Louis?  The World's Most Colorful 5K Is Headed Your Way!

Run or Dye, the world's most colorful 5K, is headed to Gateway Motorsports Park on September 1. Bring all your friends and run a color-blasted 5K, where you get showered in safe, eco-friendly, plant-based cornstarch dye every kilometer.  Then enjoy our world-famous Dye Festival afterward, where you can Tie-Dye the Sky (not to mention all your friends!) in this ultimate celebration of life, friendship, fitness, and fun.

RULES TO DYE BY:
  • FIRST RULE: Don't worry - be Happy! Run or Dye is for everyone. No need to worry about if you are too fast or slow, too old or 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 & pleading, striking that pose that makes us all uncomfortable, or dancing like a maniac. These are all code for "HIT ME WITH COLOR!")

SPONSORS & CHARITY

We are excited to be partnering with Big Brothers Big Sisters of Southwestern Illinois!

Big Brothers Big Sisters of Southwestern Illinois

Big Brothers Big Sisters of Southwestern Illinois has made successful one-to-one matches between mentors and youth for over 3. years. In the last year, 70. children in four counties were matched with a Big Brother or a Big Sister. We partner with parents, volunteers and others in the community and hold ourselves accountable for each child in our program achieving:

  • Higher aspirations, greater confidence and better relationships
  • Avoidance of risky behaviors
  • Educational success

Our program focuses on the most vulnerable youth in our community - children coping with parental incarceration, children of single parent homes, and children growing up in poverty.

Last year each youth who was matched with a mentor was promoted to the next grade level or they graduated high school.  None of the 70. youth were involved with law enforcement.

We are currently seeking  sponsors to work with for this event. Contact Us for more info.
