For the past few years, I’ve seen posts around the net about the ever-popular Color Run. I actually first read about it on Tumblr (imagine that) and thought it was something that only happened in one city/at one time. I was very surprised (and happy) when I did a little further research to see it was not only happening in multiple cities, but MY city – Cleveland, was included in the list. Last year the opportunity came and went so quickly I missed my chance to sign up, but this year I am making sure to stay on the ball.
In case you are unfamiliar with The Color Run, here is a short description from the website and a video to watch below:
The Color Run™ 5k is a unique experience focused less on speed and more on crazy color fun with friends and family. Color runners come from all different ages, shapes, sizes, and speeds; but everyone toeing the start line has a blast. Whether you are a casual morning mall walker or an Olympic athlete, the 3 miles of The Color Run™ course will be the most memorable and colorful run of your life!
This year, the Color Run has been scheduled for June 2013 in Cleveland, however a date has not been specified yet. I hopefully will hear more about this soon, so I can get a group of friends together to make this happen!
Not a Cleveland-er, but want to enjoy the amazing color fun? Check out when they’ll be coming to your city here!
I am definitely looking forward to The Color Run this summer – what could be a better way to spread Happiness, Healthiness and FUN?! Will you be joining me?
EDIT – The date for the Cleveland Color Run has just been announced for June 8th, 2013! Registration begins March 15th, and you can register right HERE!
