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

Run or Dye, the world's most colorful 5K, is headed to The Civic Center Downtown on July 5.  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.

Run or Dye is the fun run for everyone! No matter your age or fitness level...whether you're a triathlete or this is your first couch-to-5K...Run or Dye is YOUR color-blasted, tye-dyed 5K event.  As we like to say, you haven't lived until you've dyed running! (Need more info? Visit our ABOUT page!)

  • 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 (which of course you are)! 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! 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: Civic Center Downtown (Actual course subject to change)
