The  Color Run Denver is on August 3! Are you running it?

These runs have taken the country by storm. To some of us old-school runners, it seems silly: run an untimed 5K? Why?

The answer is this: to have fun, purely for the sake of having fun.

It looks like something straight out of Nickelodeon: you wear all white, and along the 5K race course, you are doused in bright neon colors. By the time you cross the finish line you should look like a Jackson Pollack painting. It's "like a powdered sugar fight."

Can kids come? Absolutely. As long as they can make it 3.1 miles, bring them! Kids under 5 are FREE with an adult!

Strollers? Sure!

Dogs? No.

And what is the color? Is it safe? From their FAQ's on their website:

The Color Run™ explosions are basically food grade cornstarch and are 100% natural and SAFE.  As with any substance, you want to keep it out of your eyes and our “certified” color throwers make sure to aim low as you pass by.  Some “Color Runners”  opt to wear glasses or goggles for their eyes and use a bandana or dust mask for their mouths.  As shown on the “about” page the middle lane is the “low color lane,” which offers a “lighter” color experience.  In summary: We work pretty hard to make it so our precious “Color Runners” get as much or as little color on them as they like.
