What better way to start your day than to get up…throw on some white clothes…and hit the streets running in The Color Run!! I’m sure most of you have heard of this HIGH ENERGY, COLOR-FILLED race but if you haven’t…allow me to tell you a little bit about it!
First off, let me say that I have run this race twice now and loved, loved, loved every minute of both! The energy from all the participants is like no other! The Color Run was founded in January of 2012 as a way to promote healthiness and happiness by bringing the community together to participate in the “Happiest 5k on the Planet”. And let me tell you…they have nailed it right on the head! Now the single largest event series in the United States, The Color Run has exploded since their debut event. They have more than tripled their growth, hosting more than 170 events in 30+ countries in 2013. WOW!!!!
This year I’m super excited about the 2014 Kaleidoscope Tour! It will be nothing short of awesome I’m sure! With new t-shirts, new wristbands, new headbands and even a new sling bag for everyone that registers!!!! You can’t beat that!!! Check these awesome goodies!!
The coolest thing about this race is that it really isn’t about how fast you can run or if you can beat that PR from last month. It is more about having a blast with your friends! The race is un-timed which means you can just take your sweet time getting doused from head to toe in different colors. In fact, there is really only two rules to this race:
- Wear white at the starting line
- Finish plastered in color!
Following this 5K, the fun will continue with an unforgettable Finish Festival. This larger than life party is equipped with music, dancing and massive color throws, which create millions of vivid color combinations. Seriously…this will be the best post-5k party on the planet!
Here are a few of my favorite pics from the two races that I was lucky enough to participate in! I always have to take the obligatory picture in the post-race color throws!!! Love the swirl of color surrounding us!
