The Flavor Run 5K at Bill Frederick Park
. The race begins at 10 a.m. Saturday, Feb. 13.
The Flavor Run 5K is basically the Color Run, only instead of running through vibrant, inedible colored powder (a la Holi celebrations), you're running through vibrant, edible, fruit-flavored
Kind of like running through a shower of Kool-Aid. Sounds pretty sweet.
With your race registration
($39 per person or $34 each for a team of four or more runners*), you'll get a bib, a finisher's medal (shaped like a banana, no less), a flavor packet (assuming it's the Flavor Run's version of Pixy Stix) and some temporary tattoos so you can get your body in the mood to ingest the maximum amount of sugar in the 30-45 minutes of the run.
The downside to this is that you have to actually do the run. The upside to it is that if you crap out at mile two, people will be throwing so much sugar in your face, it'll probably jack you up enough to cross the finish line.
