ALL-STAR COLOR RUN: Minnesota gets splashed

Posted: Updated:
ST. PAUL, Minn. (KMSP) -

The Color Run is splashing its first-ever MLB All-Star weekend -- it's a 5K race where participants look a little different at the finish line, sweat aside.

Participants are doused in different colored powder at each kilometer. MLB will make a contribution to three charities supporting cancer research and education - Stand Up To Cancer, Prostate Cancer Foundation and Susan G. Komen - and The Color Run will make a contribution to their charitable partner, Camp Kesem.

The race begins on Carnes Avenue between Chambers Street and Nelson Street and ends at the Minnesota State Fair Grandstand -- home to several fun runs that hit the metro. Dave Winfield, Member of Baseball Hall of Fame and Twelve-Time All-Star Juan Marichal, Member of the Baseball Hall of Fame and Ten-Time All-Star Scott Erickson and Doug Mientkiewicz among other notable Twins personalities will be at the event -- no word on whether they'll be doused in color or if they'll be donning clean shirts.

    It is said that the true test of friendship is how many people come to help out a person in need, and if that's true, one 4H participant from Cambridge, Minn., just found out he has an entire fairground full.
