At Run or Dye, you become part of the rainbow. As you run/walk/dance through the course, you will get showered in safe, eco-friendly, plant-based powdered dye at every kilometer…turning you into a technicolor canvas of fun!

Just when you thought you couldn’t possibly be more colorful, you’ll cross the finish line and find yourself in the middle of a colorstorm at our Finish Festival! You’ll jam out with our awesome emcees as they count down to the moment when YOU get to Tie-Dye the Sky and open your FREE color packet to share a bit of the rainbow with your friends, family, and everyone else around you. The result is a once-in-a-lifetime experience that many people tell us is the most fun they’ve ever had exercising.

This event is also sponsored by Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Illinois. $5 will be donated to the organization when you register at www.runordye.com and use the promo code: BBBSCIL. Support a great a cause!

The Bulldog Race 5K and Kids Fun Run
Oct 25 @ 8:30 am

Location: Mahomet, IL

Each year over 150 Mahomet-Seymour Junior High students participate in track and field and 70 participate in cross country. Last year, this race raised enough money to purchase 230 new uniform tops and new track & field record boards that will be displayed in the MSJH Orange Gym. We pride ourselves on how well these student-athletes represent the school and the new uniforms looked good and impressed many people during the 2014 track season. There is continued need for improved training equipment, additional uniform shorts, and supplies. All proceeds from this event will go towards purchasing these items for the MSJH track and cross country teams.
