Saturday was the big day! September and I ran The Color Run 5K in downtown St. Petersburg here in Florida. There were THOUSANDS of people, all dressed in clean white shirts and ready to run.
In our “swag bags” (the bag you get when you sign up for the race that’s full of complimentary goodies), we had sweat bands, temporary tattoos, free t-shirts and our own, individual bags of colored powder to use at the finish line.
At every kilometer, volunteers threw colored powder onto runners. First up was pink! And thank goodness we both wore sunglasses – you can’t see anything through cloud of color!
The third kilometer in the race was ORANGE.
Kilometer #4 – YELLOW!
The last round of color was at the “finish festival”.
We had such a fun time running this race! To see if there’s a Color Run coming to your city, click here!
