2C Wednesday, July 30, 2014 Bulletin, Record, Progressive, Reporter Runners take off on the bike path at Quincy High School with clouds of colored powder rising up behind them to start the 5K Color Run.

Each kilometer run also transformed the . runners into walking and i" : breathing rainbows of sorts. : Runners took off from Quincy High School last Saturday morning to participate in the second annual Color Run. Rather i I than a shot from a gun, the run started with a billow of colored powder being tossed in the air. Every time a runner approached a kilometer mark, he or she was pelted with powder of a different hue. Runners finished the course at Gansner Park, and by the time they were done, there was a lot more color in their lives. Tanah Braswell brought the Color Run to Quincy last summer, as her senior project. Originally, the run was meant to be a one-time event, but due to popular demand she brought it back for year two. Proceeds from registration at this year's run went to support the upcoming Sweetheart of the Mountains pageant at the Plumas-Sierra County Fair. "It went really well this year," Braswell expressed after the run. "People keep telling me they want to do this, so I'm probably going to do it again next year. It's become a new tradition in town." This year's run attracted 60 people -- the same number in attendance as last year. Running wasn't necessary, as was evidenced by the large number of participants wh o walked the course down the bike path. Still, there were a good number of speedsters who ran to win the timed event. Ty Morrison finished first with a time of 21 minutes, 53 seconds. Austin Hagwood placed second, coming in right behind Morrison in 22:04. Jessica Melms placed third overall with a time of 22:22. For those who can't wait for next year to add a little color to their lives and who don't mind the drive, a color run in SacFfimento that is expected to draw 15,000 people is set to take place this Saturday.
