I know lots of people who combine travel with running events.  What a great way to see the world!

Here’s a fun one.  Colour, crazy costumes, and more colour is the name of the game in “Run or Dye”, an international 5K running event. I photographed the event in Windsor, NS, Canada. Participants of all ages and fitness stages began by flinging packets of powdered bright neon dyes as they cavorted to booming feel-good music. Groups of runners/walkers/strollers set off with staggered start times in a clouds of bright purple, pink, green and blue with the beautiful Ski Martock hill as a backdrop. What a scene of joy, jocularity and good silly fun! I would highly recommend this as a fun healthy way to spend a Saturday should this traveling event come your way.

There was no charity component at the event that I’m aware of but the website (www.runordyecom) says that they are seeking an affiliation.

Tips: Pack a picnic and go early to avoid severely backed up traffic. This popular event attracts thousands.
