At the finish, everyone will be covered in colors. Post-race activities will include additional color explosions, live music, dance contest, and more fun activities for participants and spectators. Registration is $40 for individuals, $35 for teams, and $85 for families. The event is hosted by Give360, a giving circle within the Minot Area Community Foundation.
