Less about your 10-minute-mile and more about having the time of your life, The Color Run is a five-kilometer, un-timed event 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!

After Color Runners complete the race, the fun continues 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!

Katie 's thoughts:

Parking was a little difficult because a lot of the roads were blocked off. Other than that I have no complaints in terms of parking. Had it not been for the only one or 2 ways to get to our parking garage that we reserved parking in advanced, then parking would have been 5 stars. The race was a lot fun, but I felt that the color zones were a little crowded and instead of it flowing naturally and running or walking through the color zones, we had to wait in a crowd/line to get color thrown on us or to pick up color and throw it ourselves. That is my only complaint about the race. I guess you could avoid that and do the very first wave, which is more for runners, but I couldn't do that wave because I knew I wouldn't get there early enough. They included an awesome medal this year for finishers, which was nice! I hope they do it again for next year. The race could also use more photographers on course.
