Run or Dye 5K in Jackson

By  | 

More than 2,500 runners showed up in Jackson wearing white shirts -- but they certainly didn't stay that way.

It was Jackson's first ever "Run or Dye 5K," a non-competitive race similar to the Color Run that's come to Lansing and other areas in recent years.

Runners took their marks at the Armory Arts Village in Jackson and made their way through several "dye zones," dousing themselves in color.

The dye washes out. The proceeds go to charity.

"We partnered with Jackson Community Food Bank to help raise money, raise food, raise awareness for what they're doing and their mission," said Cory Hamilton, the event manager. "We had a great turnout, they have been very supportive."

The food bank had around 100 volunteers to helping out.
