Last December Ella and I had the opportunity to do our first ever color themed run-The Color Run. We had an AMAZING time. Seriously. We loved it so much!
I was curious if they'd come back to St. Pete (it was a wonderful venue, but there were some challenges) so I wasn't all that surprised when I heard that they'd be re-locating the race to Clearwater.
Participating in The Color Run is such an amazing experience. Why?
With no winners or official times, The Color Run celebrates healthiness, happiness, and individuality, bringing the community together to create a five-kilometer canvas of colorful fun in which thousands of participants are doused from head to toe in different colors at each kilometer.
“We call The Color Run the ‘happiest 5K on the planet’ because our events bring together friends and family in a unique, healthy, and fun environment,” said Travis Snyder, founder of The Color Run. “Our only rules are that people wear white and prepare to be covered in color at the finish!”
The Color Run visited over 50 cities last year with more than 600,000 participants, a feat following their first event in January of 2012. They plan to make 2013 a stellar year, launching more than 170 events with well over 1 million participants.
“Color Runners,” as they are called, vary in demographics and reasons for running. With no winners or official times, The Color Run caters to anyone – first time runners to professional athletes. Over 60 percent of Color Runners are first-time 5k runners and participate as a celebration and capstone of their healthy living accomplishments. I think that's just pretty dang awesome!! Any activity that can get someone up and moving has got my vote!
