I will never tire of races. Early morning wake ups. Adrenalin pumping through you. Thousands of people who are just as crazy as you are. Setting goals for yourself. Working hard to achieve those. Seeing new sights. I mean, really, what could be better?
There is one thing that can make races better…
Add some color to it!
I actually participated in a color run last summer and had the time of my life. It was a blast to challenge yourself, of course, but to have fun with it! That is what these runs are all about- having fun! I can’t even tell you how excited I was when I heard The Color Run™ was coming to Pittsburgh, AND that it was coming to my hometown! No joke.. 5 minutes from where I used to live (10 now, but still!). I knew from the moment it was posted that I would be running it. The husband is also in for it, along with lots of my friends, and family!
what is it?
The Color Run™, also known as the ‘Happiest 5k on the Planet’, is a unique paint race that celebrates healthiness, happiness and individuality. It’s not a timed race and you can walk or run it! It’s about the fun you have when you are running. The Color Run™ is a 5k race, and is typically in areas that have a lot of space. You will run through color stations, which means you need to wear white! Trust me, it’s so worth it because you will be a completely different color by the end.
At the end of the run, you will cross a finish line, and be splattered with more color! You will also have powder to throw up in the air and cover yourself even more!
Lucky for you, The Color Run™ has grown since it debuted in 2012. In 2013, there are over 100 events and over a million participants. You don’t want to miss out, do you? Check here to find a location near you!
want even more of a reason to do it?
That’s right. Enter this promo code at checkout and you will receive $5 off! However, this code only works for cities that are not sold you. Make sure you look fast and act upon it. These races do sell out, and unfortunately, this code is not able to get you a spot.
want even more money off?
If you register in a team of 4, you automatically get $5 off and you can use this code for an extra $5! In a “Color Team” you register as a unit (minimum 4, max infinity) instead of an individual. You are able to pick a sweet custom team name, and then run/walk together and help each other get as colored as you can! It isn’t a relay, and you can finish together or separately!
now go find the nearest one and sign up! you won’t regret it; I promise!
If you participate in one, let me know! I can’t wait to see everyone covered in color! I cannot wait until it comes here in October!
I was not compensated for this post. I will receive two free entries in exchange for a post informing everyone. All opinions stated are my own. I did participate in one and loved it, but can’t find the pictures to prove it! haha
