There's a bright, fun run in your future.
The Color Dash 5K is coming to Tucson this Saturday, Feb. 8, at Reid Park, 1100 South Randolph Way. The packet/registration starts at 8:30 a.m. The marathon starts at 10:30 p.m. The race registration fee and all of sponsorships goes to benefit Ben's Bells Kindness Programs.
You will want to start the race with a shirt as clean and white as the first Minnesota snow but we will make sure that you soak up such a great deal of color that you may just end up being colored for life. Don’t be surprised if you even end up looking like a leprechaun tripped into that huge rainbow of color that he’s always searching for. It may be enough to get your feet moving and dance it off at the end of the DASH — whatever you do, let the colors move you!
We will warn you that even though you will start out as clean as a bar of soap, it will not last for long. As the DASH continues you will find yourself being covered in a spectrum of colors: blue, green, pink, orange and yellow. At each Kilometer during the DASH a new color explosion will add to the clean slate that you once were, until you come to the finish line and arrive into a final explosion of colors...so much in fact, that you will wonder if Iris sent Zeus himself to deliver the message.
We want to send two lucky Ranger readers to this family fun event.

Good luck, Rangers.
