Towson University held its first ever Holi Run over the weekend, a combination of the traditional Holi Festival of Colors from India that celebrates the coming of spring and the Color Run race held in multiple cities throughout the country.
“It was my brain child that I came up with after watching Holi videos excessively last spring,” said student Justin Schwendeman. “I then thought of the Color Run and how Baltimore had never done one. I talked with some friends and we decided to put it on. URG contacted different organizations and we all decided to work together on the event.”
