Some 5,200 people ran through a rainbow of colored powder during Bellingham’s first Color Run 5K from the Bellingham Public Library through the Lettered Streets area and back on a sunny Sunday morning, Aug. 16.
The Color Run is a for-profit corporation that assists local organizations with fundraising by staging “the Happiest 5K” runs in which participants are sprayed with colored powder. Some $3 million has been raised for various charities since 2012.
Funds were raised for the Whatcom Family YMCA during the Bellingham event.
