Run or Dye

Run or Dye

Posted: Updated:

Minot was the most colorful city in North Dakota today, with the Run or Dye 5K in town.

Run or Dye was one of the biggest running events Minot has ever had, bringing over 6,000 participants from around the state, and even further.

The event - which can't really be called a race - kicked off at 9 this morning with music, colorful chalk in the air, and runners ages 0 - 80 lined up at the Minot airport.

After running, walking, or even being pushed in a stroller for 3.2 miles, the crowd gathered around a stage to watch dancing, hear music, and throw all of their chalk in the air for the color explosion.

One M-C for Run or Dye says the unique color aspect of the event is really what gets people out and wanting to get active.

(Sam Malachowski, Run or Dye Emcee) "I mean, we're just trying to promote healthy lifestyles and to have fun while you do it. When we see people's smiles, laughing and having a good time, it makes it all worth it."

Run or Dye has been at a new location in the US and Canada every weekend this summer.

In Minot, the organization partnered with Hope Village to raise money to continue to rebuild our community.

Sam says that their main focus is to bring people of all ages together in a positive way.

(Sam Malachowski, Run or Dye Emcee) "It brings unity, it reunites people, and we're all about love at Run or Dye. We seriously just want people to meet new people, to just spread their love with everyone else, and make new friendships, and hopefully everlasting friendships."
