Photos from Denver Color Run!

10,000 anxious runners lined up across a start line in Denver’s City Park all wearing similar attire on May 26th. White shirts are must if you are participating in the Color Run. Speakers jammed with upbeat music on a beautiful Colorado day to welcome runners to the happiest 5k on the planet. The event was not timed- fun overrides score keeping.

At each 1k mark runners roll through a color zone and are drenched with a powdery substance. By the end of the race runners were splashed with turquoise, purple, yellow, pink and green. After crossing the finish line runners celebrated thier new vibrant style in front of a jam packed stage. Runners danced to music and reached high to grab individual bags packed with more powdered color. On cue, those with bags in hand sprayed the color into the air sprinkling the crowd with more shades.
Proceeds of Denver’s Run will help color the world of patients at Children’s Hospital.

    I did a 5K back in 1994. Never felt so sore in all my life, and extremely happy that I had a hot tub at the time!
