The Color Run

The Color Run, also known as "the happiest 5,000 meters on the planet", is an event series and five kilometer paint race that is owned and operated by The Color Run LLC, a for-profit company. It strongly resembles elements of the Holi festival from which it was inspired. It takes place in North America, South America, Europe, Asia, New Zealand, Australia, Africa and the United Arab Emirates. The untimed event has no winners or prizes, but runners are showered with colored powder, made of food-grade corn starch, at stations along the run.

Color Run!

The Color Run is such a fun way to make running more interesting. I tried it last fall and here's a picture I took of all the colors being thrown in the air. Just make sure that you wear clothes you don't really care about, the color is hard to get completely out!

The "color" thrown at you is a mix of corn starch and food dye.
