A quick guide on how to run with color:
Plan to wear shoes that you don’t mind turning rainbow. And bring a a plastic bag for your phone – this is crucial because pictures are a MUST!
Arrive early because tons of other people love the Color Run. After checking in apply fun tattoos / color accessories (I had a rainbow tutu) and take plenty of before pics!
Don’t take your running too seriously. This race attracts more newbies and walkers then you can imagine.
Enter each color on the side (where color sprayers are waiting). Lift your arms in the air. Turn around at each person, and don’t miss a sprayer. Commemorate every color with a picture!
At the end grab your bonus bags, take your completion photo and get ready to dance!
Pile in to the stage crowd. Dance your heart out! When the DJ calls for a color throw, grab your bag. On the count of three join the masses and throw your color. Get ready to hold your breathe, jump and enjoy the color, glitter madness.
Once you pry yourself away and get home be prepared to have lingering colors and glitter for days. But in the end it’s always worth it!
