Runners across the state received a chunk of bad news this week when it was announced that the Run or Dye 5K race scheduled for May 10th in Champaign would be cancelled.
Nearly 4,000 people signed up for the race that sprays the participants with dye while they run.
The hang up came when they chose to run part of the race across the U of I campus.
Unfortunately the college does not allow for-profit groups to use their grounds for profit.
Race CEO Jake Ackerman said he still hopes to hold a race in Champaign county in the future, and that everyone will be given a refund.
