5,000 get doused with powdered dye at 5K

KENNEWICK - If you're into running and splashes of color, this story is for you. That's exactly what happened in Kennewick Saturday morning.

Nearly 5,000 people ran in the Run or Dye event. The race is unique because runners get doused with powdered dye as they cross the finish line.

And Saturday, no one escaped the color crew!

"I danced through most of them saying 'cover me,' said race participant Jennifer Farnsworth.

"It was absolutely fun. I mean, I kind of walked and....danced through the dye. And they absolutely covered you," added race participant Miranda Cobb.

Organizers tell us they hope to return to the Tri-Cities.
