The Color Run, The Happiest 5K on the Planet! [+Giveaway!]

1 Aug
Last year, I participated in The Color Run Brooklyn.
Color party!

If you don’t already know about The Color Run, the following description is straight from their website:

“Less about your 10-minute-mile and more about having the time of your life, The Color Run is a five-kilometer, un-timed race in which thousands of participants are doused from head to toe in different colors at each kilometer. The fun continues at the finish line with a gigantic “Color Festival,” using more colored powder to create happiness and lasting memories, not to mention millions of vivid color combinations. Trust us, this is the best post-5k party on the planet!”

Check out the video below and make sure to read my recap of last year’s run here!

So why am I writing about this again?  Well…The Color Run is the self-proclaimed “Happiest 5K on the Planet” and my friends at TCR are offering up a FREE entry for TWO PB&P readers to a Color Run of their choice!

To enter to win, comment below telling me what the happiest race you’ve ever run is!  If you’ve never run a race, just tell me what your favorite color is! Winners will be selected at random and announced on August 8th.  Good luck! 🙂

Even if you aren’t a lucky winner, I have a promo code for you to receive $5 off any registration!  Click here to find a Color Run in your city and sign up NOW!

Note: This promo code is valid for any race that is not sold-out.  It is applicable retroactively and does not guarantee a spot in a Color Run race.  Races sell out quickly, so be sure to sign-up soon for a city near you!

*The Color Run is providing me with two free registrations for PB&P readers.  I was not compensated in any way for writing this post.  As always, the opinions are my own.

    The happiest race I've ever done is the Primal Mud Run, which I ran last year. It was real muddy and challenging, and I'll never forget it.

    I ran a race supporting Autism Awareness in the spring. I ran two weeks before beginning my new job as an at-home therapist for autism children, and it was incredible to run with so many people who supported the cause. There were over 600 runners, and I was almost in tears as the race began. Afterwards I got to spend time getting to know all my new coworkers, and meeting many of the clients I would be working with. Pure magic that day. nlbourassa (at) gmail (dot) com

    My happiest race was the Drenched 5K I did with my son a month ago. It was awesome to do something with him and see him smile the whole time.

    My happiest race ever was the Red Shoe run. It is for Organ Donor awareness. It was so inspiring to run a race beside someone who was running the race with a donated heart.

    The happiest race I ran was a 5k on St. Patty's Day last year. Everyone was dressed up, including people cheering you on. It was a blast!
