The Color Run is known as 'The happiest 5k on the planet." It made it's debut last year and has grown into a huge movement. The purpose of the race is to celebrate healthiness, happiness, individuality, and giving back to the community. In each city where a race is held, a local charity is chosen, money is raised and donated. The event is not timed. You can walk the whole darn thing if you want. You can sign up individually or as a team as long as you have four members. It's not about 'racing', it's about having fun! As you reach each kilometer marker, you're doused is color! At the finish line, it's a 'color festival' where they use even more colored powder to celebrate your victory.
I wanted to do this last year, but...didn't. I'm not making the same mistake again. I'm going for it! It looks like SO much fun! I posted something about it on FB last night and there seems to be some interest!
All we need now is a team name! The race in Birmingham is on September 2nd, which gives us plenty of time to prepare. Registration fees are the cheapest until April 1st so we need to get going on the team. I'm SO geeked!!
