The Color Run -- Race Entry Giveaway

A friend recently told me about The Color Run (HERE).  I was excited to hear that there was a race scheduled closeby in Chicago, but also learned that they added an event in Racine, Wisconsin (HERE).  I'm so excited to be attending the Happiest 5K on the Planet on Saturday, May 19 in Racine!!! 

Check out The Color Run Video (HERE) to see what the hype is all about!!  Intrigued?!?! Of course you are! .......

The Happiest 5k on the Planet

What is the Color Run?

The Color Run is a one of a kind experience that is less about speed and more about enjoying a color crazy day with your friends and family. Our events, are all about people of all different speeds, ages, shapes, and sizes toeing the start line. Whether you are a casual morning mall walker or an Olympic athlete, the 3 miles of the Color Run course will be the most enjoyable real estate you’ve traveled in a VERY long time. You will love this Color Dash of fun!

How does it work?

The Color Run pretty much has 2 SIMPLE rules. 1. White shirts (any mostly white T will work great) mandatory at the start line and 2. Color plastered EVERYTHING at the finish! Runner/walkers begin the 5k at the start line like a brand new pristine coloring book, they end looking like they fell into a Willy Wonka… tie dyed… vat of colored goodness.

What is the Color?

Each kilometer of the event is associated with a designated color. 1k is yellow, 2k is blue, 3k is green, 4k is pink (my fave -- can't WAIT for that!), and the 5k finish is a “Color Extravaganza.”

I am going to be more colorful than ever!!!!!!

As the runners/walkers hit the Kilometer COLOR RUN Zones, they will be blitzed by our volunteers, sponsors, and staff with COLOR. The color is a special “elf made” recipe of magical color dust. All products are 100% natural and safe. You can eat the stuff if you’d like (we have tried it and don’t suggest it, it is surprisingly high in calories and leaves a chalky aftertaste). See the diagram below for the COLOR RUN ZONE specifics:

The Color Run is making stops all over the country.  Check out the awesome locations nationwide (HERE) to see if one is near you!!

They also have the most fabulous post-race parties on the planet!!!
