One of the happiest and most colorful 5-K’s on Earth came to the Duke City on Saturday.

The Color Run splashed through downtown Albuquerque.

There are no winners or official times.

Instead, the Color Run celebrates healthiness, happiness and individuality.

Thousands of participants are doused from head to toe in different colors at each kilometer.

“This is a normal Saturday for me,” said runner Mike Plowman. “I wake up and try to get as colorful as possible.”

 The Color Run is working with the Ronald McDonald house charities in New Mexico.
