Registrations are open for the Pittsfield Family YMCA’s Tie Dye Dash: 5K Color Run fundraiser. The event will be held rain or shine on Saturday, May 30, starting at 9 a.m. Register by April 30 for the best rate of $20.
The race is a 5K color run that begins and ends in Burbank Park, where victory is in doing your personal best. This race is not about being the fastest or being in the best shape; it is about encouraging healthy lifestyles. You can walk, jog, run or hop on one foot as long as you get out there and give it your all. Dressed in a provided YMCA white T-shirt and sunglasses, you will pass through 5 splash zones where colored cornstarch powder will be tossed at you. By the end of the 3.1 miles (5K), you will be colored in a tie dyed array of creativity. All proceeds support the Pittsfield Family YMCA’s Bright Futures: Summer Literacy Program.
