I’ve honestly never done a color run, but now that I’m currently running to rebuild mileage and not to hit a certain pace, this seems like the perfect time to try it out, and maybe even convince some of the kiddos in my life to join me.
WHAT IS COLOR IN MOTION 5K?
As you sprint, jog, waddle, or leisurely stroll along the course you will be bombarded with bright colors that transform a group of ordinary runners into a moving rainbow! The color that you will be showered with is completely safe and washes off easily. If you don’t think you can beat your friends with speed, see if you can be the real winner by coming out of the race covered head to toe in a vibrant springtime camouflage. The race kicks off at 9am, with waves starting roughly every 10 minutes.
The color powder is a mixture of cornstarch and dye that is 100% safe and biodegradable. You probably don’t want to eat it, but it won’t hurt you if that’s your thing.
WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?
You can wear whatever you want, but the best part is starting as a clean blank white canvas, and ending the race covered in color!
CAN KIDS PARTICIPATE?
Absolutely! The events are family friendly, and kids of any age can attend!
CAN FRIENDS AND FAMILY ATTEND THE AFTER PARTY ONLY?
Of course! Come party with us, and bring your friends and family to come cheer you on.
CAN I RUN WITH MY STOLLER?
Strollers are allowed, we just ask that you start at the back of the race for safety reasons.
CAN I WALK?
Absolutely! You can walk, run, crawl, skip, hop, waltz, or dance your way to the finish. The race isn’t timed so just come ready to have fun and get covered in color. If you do want to know your 5K time, bring your own stopwatch.
WHAT ABOUT COSTUMES?
Costumes are more than welcome. If you or your team are going to come in costumes we do recommend making them as white as possible to ensure you get the most optimal color coverage possible.
WHAT IS THE AGE LIMIT?
No age limit! Come young, come old! Everyone loves to be covered in bright colors!
