2021 Dash ‘n Dye 5k Color Run

Join us for the 2021 Dash ‘n Dye 5k Color Run hosted by the Sun ‘n Lake of Sebring Improvement District on Thursday, April 1. The race will begin at 6 p.m. at the Sun ‘n Lake Community Center located at 3500 Edgewater Dr in Sebring.

Calling all dreamers, believers, and magic-makers! Get up and glow with us for the Sun ‘n Lake Dash ‘n Dye 5k. Our 2021 Dash ‘n Dye will be celebrating those who make the world brighter, healthier, and happier. Whether this is your 1st or 50th, we can’t wait to MAKE MAGIC, MAKE MEMORIES, and MAKE MORE. TOGETHER.

The color used during the race is non-toxic, as it is a combination of baking soda, cornstarch, and safe dyes. Even though it is safe, it may take a few washes to get the color completely out of your clothing and shoes; washing your outfit right away works best. Some people wear glasses or goggles to keep the color away from their eyes and use a bandana to keep it out of their mouth, but you can also enjoy the race without the extra protection.

While color dust is safe, people with allergies and/or asthma may want to take extra precautions when it comes to the color powder. We suggest any participants with allergies or asthma wear protective masks and/or keep a safe distance from the Color Blast Stations during the run. We caution parents to evaluate their child’s tolerance to dust and make appropriate decisions for their family. We also recommend that a mask, kerchief, or some type of covering over the mouth and nose be used to minimize excessive inhalation of the color dust.

Registration is now open! Visit If you have any questions please email
