i am SO excited to let y'all know that The Color Run is coming to our area! Not only once, but TWICE they are visiting Washington, DC! This is truly amazing because we're all busy and can't always make the ONE date - and i think The Color Run knows this - they want to make us happy; which is why they're also known as the Happiest 5k on the Planet!
The Color Run coming to Washington, DC on 9/28 and 11/01!
For anyone who isn't familiar with The Color Run, here's a quick run down:
The Color Run, also known as the Happiest 5k on the Planet, is a unique paint race that celebrates healthiness, happiness and individuality. Now the single largest event series in the United States, The Color Run has exploded since our debut event. We have more than tripled our growth, hosting more than 170 events in 30+ countries in 2013.
This year is extra special because they're throwing in more goodies for us! Not only do we get doused in a KALEIDOSCOPE of color while running/walking this, we're getting great swag! As usual, race participants receive an exclusive T-shirt, headband and wrist band - and new this year - a SLING BAG! This is essential to protect your T-shirt (if you don't wear it during the race) but also your personal belongings!
The color run is also family friendly! Kids 5 and under can run [or walk/stroll] with an adult for FREE! They will not receive a race packet, but there is plenty of items available for purchase for them! If they are above the age of 5, they will have to register and have their very own race bib!
Worried about the color powder?? Don't be! The powder is 100% cornstarch based and even gluten free! if you're still nervous - wear some sunglasses and a hip bandana over your nose/mouth during the color zones!
The Color Run is a five-kilometer, un-timed race in which thousands of participants, or “Color Runners”, are doused from head to toe in different colors at each kilometer. With only two rules, the idea is easy to follow:
- Wear white at the starting line
- Finish plastered in color!
The fun continues after Color Runners complete the race 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. Trust us, this is the best post-5k party on the planet!
