Amarillo, TX - You may have noticed some people around town looking a little colorful.  

That's because the yellow city welcomed the Color Run Saturday morning.

Runners and walkers are sprayed with different colors throughout the race, making everyone look like a rainbow. 
     
The purpose is to  promote health and fitness while raising  money for a good the Laura W. Bush Institute for Women's Health. 

The Color Run stops in more than 100 US cities and 30 countries every year.  
   
This is the second year it has come to Amarillo.
