It was all part of the Run or Dye 5K.

This race isn't about competition – organizers say it's a celebration of friendship, fitness and fun.
“It's actually just a big party and a little bit of running associated with it but you can run as fast or as slow as you want,” said Anna O'Nan, who ran Saturday. “You can bring your family and as you run people throw color at you and you dance and you spend time with family and friends.”
After they cross the finish line, runners joined a technicolor party that lasted for hours.
