Each year it just gets better and better.” said Dana Al-Ali, YHF Ambassador and student of WCM-Q. 

 

The fun didn’t stop at the finish line, with the larger-than-life Finish Festival providing the perfect post-5k party as thousands of Color Runners celebrated with their friends and families with world-famous colorful throws.
