The Color Run is a new, fun 5K that has taken the US by storm. From what I understand, the event has been selling out all over the nation. In fact, the one that I participated in reached maximum capacity so a second Run was added.

The event consists of several checkpoints where colored powder is thrown all over participants. Then at the end of the race everyone gathers and there's a powder party where the dust is thrown by everyone. The entire sky turned pink for several seconds and it was incredible!
After the race, and after event celebration we were COVERED in rainbow colors. So. Much. Fun. Check out this before and after picture of us!
I know a bunch of bloggers have mentioned they are doing The Color Run near them, or they want to. I highly recommend it. If you see one in your area sign up before they sell out! If you're not a runner (like me) don't worry, you can totally walk the 5K. I thought it was more fun that way because I was able to take in the whole scene.
Next year I'll definitely sign up for The Color Run again!
