Are you a runner? Do you want to be a runner? Whether you’ve been running for a long time or are just a beginner this is the perfect race for you. It’s not about numbers, it’s about getting out there and having fun. Have your friends and family join with you to race in the Happiest 5K on the Planet or race it alone and make new friends along the way. The Color Run is an un-timed race where you’re doused with different colors at every kilometer. Then at the finish line there’s a huge Color Festival with even more colored powder being thrown about. I’m pretty sure it’s going to take days to remove all the color from your skin. Doesn’t this look like the most fun you’ve ever had?

There are only 2 rules in this race: wear white at the starting line and finish plastered in color. Bring a camera! You’re going to want to get tons of pictures. So are you ready to run?

Make this a memorable day and enjoy the party! I can’t think of a better excuse to train for a 5K and enjoy getting splashed in color. Can you? I will be there in my white shirt and not my best running shoes. Will you? Let me know if you’ll be there, it would be fun to meet up, especially after, in all our colorful glory.

I am signed up for the Color Run in Grand Rapids, MI in August with my sister and several friends. We are so excited! None of us have ever done it before. I have some questions though that maybe you could help me with. You mentioned wearing old shoes – the clothes that we wear?? Should they be clothes that are okay to be ruined too? What is the color made of? Will it stain? Does everyone actually run or are their walkers too? Is the color bothersome to inhale or ingest? I’m a nervous nellie so I like to be prepared! :) Thank you!

I hope I can answer all your questions. I do wear old running shoes because it’s hard to get the color off shoes. I would wear clothes that you don’t mind being stained. I bought a $4 white t-shirt to wear. I also cover my hair with a bandana, but you don’t have too. Some people wear costumes which is really fun! There are a lot of walkers too. It’s mostly just for the experience and it is a ton of fun. My kids loved it! The color is cornstarch, so it’s fine to breath in but I wouldn’t to it intentionally. It smells really good in the whole area (like baby powder). Really, you’ll be having so much fun you won’t be nervous. If you bring a camera, use a disposable one or make sure yours is protected.
