WENATCHEE — Time to get colorful! The second-annual Color Rush 5K is coming up at 8 a.m., Sunday, Aug. 17, at Pybus Public Market in Wenatchee. AWColorRushCone1

Last year’s inaugural event attracted about 550 runners and walkers, who moved through clouds of tinted cornstarch only to emerge, well, thoroughly tie-dyed.

Color Rush is held by the United Way of Chelan & Douglas Counties. It serves as a fundraiser for Youth United, a program designed to promote youth volunteerism.

The cost for the untimed event is $50 for adults and $40 for youth 7 to 17 years of age.
