What to expect?

Colorful run meets social justice, and a whole lot of fun. Run, walk, and/or dance the route around Brandeis University’s beautiful campus, as colored powder is thrown in the air while participants run the Brandeis route. The vibrant colors are safe and non-toxic, and promise to be the best way to welcome spring to campus.

This year all proceeds from the 5k will generously support the b.good Family Foundation.

b.good Family Foundation

Founded on the principle that everyday people inherently want to “be good,” the b.good Family Foundation’s mission is to use micro-grants to enable individuals to make positive change in our community.

“We believe in the power of a passionate individual with a burning desire to change things for the better, whether it’s motivated social entrepreneurs, existing charitable leaders, or everyday people with a generous spirit. We have witnessed first-hand the incredible, contagious impact of a person who has found the support they need to make their idea a reality. By giving directly to those inspired individuals, we aim to spark positive change in our community.

We donate 100% of the funds we raise directly back to the people in our communities through a quarterly series of small grant programs. The recipients of our support is based on a community vote by the b.good family. Long story short, we’re on a mission to help real people with great ideas do good.”


Parking will be available on campus. Signs/security will identify where guests may park for the duration of the event upon arrival.

Cancellation Policy

The event will continue in rain or shine. In the event that the race is unable to take place due to weather, the registration fee will be generously donated to the b.good Family Foundation. Check the race Facebook page for any cancellations and additional information.
