Take a closer look at the 2013 Color Run [PHOTOS]


The 2013 Color Run attracted more than 2,500 participants who served as blank white canvasses to help raise $8,000 for the local chapter of Habitat for Humanity. The event, which is promoted as the "Happiest 5k on the Planet," started and ended at Ohio University's South Green intramural fields.

Take a look at some of the photos.
