Grand Forks, ND (WDAY TV) - It's been a hit across the nation and it finally came to Grand Forks: The Color Run.

Around 3,500 participants showed up for what is called "The happiest 5K on the planet.”

Runners start in white and end up plastered with powdered paints. The untimed 5K is a celebration of healthiness, happiness, and individuality.

Hannah Freese- Runner: β€œIt looked really fun and me and my friends wanted to do it and it's just something to do for fun with your friends.”

The first Color Run debuted in January of 2012.
