Things To Do Huntsville: The Color Run

By: Huntsville Real Estate Expert Mike Manosky On September 16, 2014

The Color Run™ is dubbed the Happiest 5K on the Planet! They travel the world, put on amazing races, chuck paint, donate to charity, and have a ton of fun.

On Saturday, September 27, The Color Run is partnering with The Arts Council to raise money and shine a light on the Council’s amazing work.

The Color Run was founded in March of 2011 as an event to promote healthiness and happiness by bringing the community together to participate in the “Happiest 5k on the Planet”.  The Color Run is the original paint race and has created a completely new genre of running events that continues to grow exponentially. Now the single largest event series in the United States, The Color Run has exploded since its debut event. They have more than tripled their growth, hosting more than 170 events in 30+ countries in 2013.

The Color Run is less about your 10-minute-mile and more about having the time of your life! It is a five-kilometer, un-timed race in which thousands of participants, or “Color Runners”, are doused from head to toe in different colors at each kilometer. With only two rules, the idea is easy to follow:

  1. Wear white at the starting line
  2. Finish plastered in color!

The fun continues after Color Runners complete the race with an unforgettable Finish Festival. This larger than life party is equipped with music, dancing and massive color throws, which create millions of vivid color combinations. Trust us, this is the best post-5k party on the planet!

Sign-up here and have the FUN!
