Race Information

What is the Amazing Technicolor 5k?

The Color Holi Festival in India is the genesis for our event. From the beginning, through the course and at the finish line you will be showered with colored powder.


This Technicolor adventure will be held in Mesquite, Texas.


First of all it is a run that will distract and please you from beginning to end. You won't even notice that you have completed a 3.1 mile course. You will start clean and without blemish and will finish covered head to toe with all the colors of the rainbow.


The Amazing Technicolor 5k is for everyone. You don't have to be a runner. You don't have to do anything other than walk. Age? 2 to 92. The main qualification is that you have a great time and create great memories with your friends and family.

This is an untimed event with just 2 Requirements:

Party with your best friends and family! Bring your a group of 4 or more and save $5 per person!

The Amazing Technicolor 5k supports the efforts of the Mesquite ISD Education Foundation, Inc., and the Mesquite Education Association (MEA). These partner organizations are dedicated to enriching and enhancing the education of Mesquite’s 39,000 youngsters.


The Foundation supplies funds for projects and programs outside the regular school district budget through a grant application process. The Foundation Board of Directors come from a cross section of the community. They have a vision of excellence for the school district, but realize that the lack of state funding limits programs and services to students.

About the Powder

This is non-toxic, non-rash-inducing, colored corn-starch. It can stain clothes though. But a typical machine washing will usually do the trick. Do you really want to eliminate the proof of your fun though?!
