Colorful plume: Bright orange powder sprays this runner in the 9 a.m. contingent of the Color Me Rad 5K on Saturday, starting at the Altamont fairgrounds. Hundreds of runners participated in races, which ran until 2 p.m. Color bombs of blue, green, pink, purple, and yellow cornstarch showered the runners along the way.

Color for everyone: Runners throw blue and purple powder into the sky at the start of the Color Me Rad 5K race at the Altamont fairgrounds on Saturday. Every runner started with clean, white T-shirt but, by the time the race was over, they had their own Klee or Kadinsky.

The joys of paint: This young kid, already covered in blue powder, runs through the first “Color Bomb” station at the Altamont fairgrounds, making him mostly orange, during Saturday’s Color Me Rad 5K. There were no winners; the goal was to have fun.
