The Color Run™ 5k is going down in Fort Lauderdale, FL on May 5th, 2013! The only question is, “Are you ready for the craziest, colorful, 5k of your life?” You bet you are! Race it solo or form a “color team” of 4+ members. Riverwalk Fort Lauderdale is delighted to announce that it has been selected as the partner charity for The Color Run™ Fort Lauderdale.
The Color Run™ 5k is a one of a kind experience that is less about speed and more about enjoying a color crazy day with your friends and family. It is about participants of all different speeds, ages, shapes, and sizes toeing the start line. Whether you are a casual morning mall walker or an Olympic athlete, the 3 miles of The Color Run™ course will be the most enjoyable real estate you’ve traveled i! n a VERY long time.
The Color Run™ event pretty much has two simple rules: 1) White shirts (any mostly white T will work great) mandatory at the start line and 2) color plastered EVERYTHING at the finish! Runner/walkers begin the 5k at the start line like a brand new pristine coloring book. By the end, they look like they fell into a Willy Wonka… tie dyed… vat of colored goodness.
Each kilometer of the event is associated with a designated color: yellow, orange, pink, or blue. As the runners/walkers reach the Kilometer COLOR Zones, they are blitzed by volunteers, sponsors, and staff with COLOR. All products are 100% natural and safe.
After the finish, participants are encouraged to stick around, celebrate, and see exactly how much COLOR one person can handle. We will have food, color, and festivities that will make your color-powdered head spin. Also make sure to take the time to stroll along the Riverwalk and enjoy its s! cenic views. the Registration for the event will open on January 15th, 2013 at midnight.
