Color Run? Last year, when we heard that the Color Run was coming to Seattle, we signed up as soon as registration opened. Good thing too because this "just for fun" 5K sold out almost immediately. Crazy huh? We even knew folks who wanted to do it but waited a few days to commit. Guess what? Too bad so sad for them.
It's Just For Fun
Remember this race is just for fun so take the whole family. We took our 16 year old son (it was his first ever 5K). For you "serious" runners out there, here's what you do. Leave your Garmin at home, put on some old shoes and go have some fun. Don't expect to be timed or even run the whole thing. You can walk or jog it. The only requirement is that you take a few moments to get colored along the way.
Do you want to see what you're in for?
It has taken me seven months, but I finally put together this video of our experience at the 2012 Seattle Color Run. Enjoy!
Don't Wait to Register
If you missed it last year, you can get in on the fun this year. But if you're serious about doing this, sign up as soon as registration opens. By the way, it also benefits Ronald McDonald House Charities. You'll also get a Color Run t-shirt and head band with your entry.
