5 local summer fun runs: Colors, foam, sweets, inflatables, super heroes

Cardio is hardio, we’ll be the first to tell you that.

But you know what’s not hard? Getting blasted with colored powder, suds’ing up, sliding down inflatables, putting on a super hero cape, and eating sweets!

While all five of the outdoor, family-friendly events were about to tell you about involve running, that’s hardly the main point.

These fun runs are all about getting together, having a great time, and supporting good causes!
