Become Part Of A Living Kaleidoscope On The Color Run's 2014 Tour!

The Color Run 2014 Kaleidoscope Tour
Momma Told Me: Live life in full color.

I love color. I can think of few things that can make me quite literally giddy as fast as something splashed with beautiful, vivid, bright colors. Whether it's cupcake frosting, a fluffy new comforter, a pair of neon short shorts, or a rainbow stacked desk organizer- it's hard not to smile when you're surrounded with such unexpected pops of pure color. So, naturally, I wanted no, needed, to be a part of the 'fun run' revolution of 'color running' that has swept the population worldwide. The practice of non-competitive 5k treks which douse the participants in colored corn starch and culminate in a color orgy (don't worry, the intermingling of colors and people is entirely family friendly), has become THE thing for the non athletic aspiring such as myself. Of course, seasoned runners participate too, in fact, even infants in strollers sport temporary tattoos and tutus as they parade through the event!

But let's be real- there are a LOT of these types of events springing up. It seems every week I see one of my friends of family has shared a flyer for an upcoming neon night run, color walk, dance-a-thon, or Spartan race. The world of fun runs is big, my friends; and even within the color-racing genre, you have many choices. My answer? Do them all if you can- however, if you cannot, there is one race I have whole-heatedly endorsed without any sponsorship, across several blog posts in the past. As someone who has many local friends who have attended as many as 4 different color race events, I know that The Color Run is the only place for 100% professional and color jam-packed fun. Don't be fooled by imitators my friends, go to an official The Color Run event, they're the originals, and each year they find a way to keep making it better.

New for 2014, The Color Run's one year only Kaleidoscope Tour there will be more color than ever before with a 'living kaleidoscope' participants can actually walk through (I am dying to see this!) and more event stations throughout the race route. Every registered runner will also be able to score an awesome swag bag of merchandise including a Color Block Headband, Temporary Tattoos, T-Shirt, and brand new Shoulder Bag! I am very excited about the new swag for all registered runners, as the shoulder bag design is absolutely gorgeous- I only wish that The Color Run would add an extra charge for each runner to elect to buy an additional color packet. Last year we decided to begin dousing before the event began, and would have loved to have an additional packet for the after-party too.

You see all of the photos in your friend's Facebook feed and wonder what The Color Run is really about, right? Maybe you're on the fence, or you've heard about some 'muddy' color experiences. In my opinion, this event is as colorful as you make it. Find a 2014 Kaleidoscope Tour date in a city near you, register on the VIP list (and pay as low as $25 per person!), and begin planning your big day. Go crazy plan hair styles, makeup, outfits, face paint- it's all about you, whether you're running solo or in a giant team of friends and family. You will see everything at The Color Run, so don't feel afraid to let your creative side flow! Do keep in mind any clothing or accessories may be tinted of stained by the food-grade-safe dye infused with the corn starch color- and sweating or water may make colors bleed or become mucky (it happens.) Whether you come out looking like a promo-photo, or a muddy mess, the event is a blast, and the fun is only limited by your mentality!

The Color Run is coming to my local city October 18, 2014- and I am crazy anxious. You will undoubtedly hear about my outfit planning and torturous countdown over the next 6 months! But a The Color Run event could be coming to your town as soon as within the next few weeks, so be sure to check the current event listings to check for the next local race and register with code COLOR5OFF to save $5 on your event registration. If you don't see your local big city listed yet, get on the email VIP list to be notified as soon as the dates are announced. I'll see you all on the colored pavement!

What Daughter Says: Stay colorful, my friends.

  3. I think the color run needs a herd of goats. Colorful goats. Bwahahaha. I think I saw they have one in Missoula. Although I do NOT run. Unless it's from an amorous goat.

    I need a life.

  4. There are few that do run it- I walked the entire route- I think it's more enjoyable that way anyhow!

  5. After reading that you walked the route I would be psyched to do this (I am NOT a runner)!
