After the 5K Run for Clean Water, hosted by the Obed Watershed Community Association, more than 100 runners lined up for the Cumberland Color Run, sponsored by Generation Z. Going home clean was not an option as runners passed various color stations along the one-mile route along Milo Lemert Parkway. Many were covered head to toe with all the colors of the rainbow.
