The Color Run; dubbed the Happiest 5k On The Planet.
One look at a Color Run photo and you;ll instantly know what all the buzz is about. Participants, initially dressed in white, cross the 5k finish line sprayed in a rainbow of corn starch paint. Entrants age 0-99 are encouraged to run, roll, or walk through 3 miles of scenic territory on a 5k route, with 4 assigned color checkpoints along the way. The event originally began in hopes of inspiring both the athletically inclined and the athletically unmotivated to come together in a vibrant celebration of life. Participants walk for a variety of reasons; some walk to celebrate a personal health victory, some walk to honor a loved one, others walk to spend a day with family in friends. Many enter, and all leave united, in a cloud of glorious color. The Color Run is an untimed event, purely for fun, open to all ages, with a general admittance fee that covers operations costs and basic entry swag. Individuals may register solo, or teams of 4+ may be created with a discount of $5 per person. Multiple entry windows are open, with each zone (closer to the event) going up in cost; so it is important to register early! These events do and will sell out.The Color Run (ok, there are some basic safety rules, but it really is all about FUN); come in white, and leave plastered in color. Myself and 8 other participants (from 4-30) will be participating in the local, upcoming, event this October. Be sure to keep an eye out for our preparation posts, and the event recap.
