It’s that time again my friends! Also known as “the Happiest 5k on the Planet”, The Color Run®, will be flying to Rawhide Western Town for its 2018 tour, The Color Run Hero Tour, on Saturday, November 10. Being the largest event series in the world, the 5k caters to all skill levels and ages in more than 30 countries!
I have always had my boys participate in 5k runs with me. I think it’s great for exercise, encouragement, and teaching new skills. The Color Run is the one 5k Max has talked about doing again over and over. He absolutely loved getting doused in a rainbow of color and racing to the next color wave.
The Color Run Hero Tour
Aiming to motivate young runners, The Color Run has teamed up with Nickelodeon to bring some of the network’s fan-favorite characters, including the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, to life along the racecourse. Not only can you meet the costumed characters from the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, but you also get to show off your TMNT spirit at a temporary tattoo station, and more. Um, TMNT?! Check!
Participants are encouraged to run, walk, dance, or cartwheel their way through the course as they are doused in colored powder. This race in Phoenix also features a Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles super color zone, where runners will race through four different colored powders, representing the four Turtles. TMNT may be our Halloween costumes this year so this year’s theme couldn’t be any better. I’m keeping it a surprise though so Max won’t find out until we arrive!
Color Runners are encouraged to arrive early and warm up with a group Zumba party. After crossing the finish line your colorful run, you can attend a massive Finish Festival dance party with a live DJ and massive color throws every few minutes. The Finish Festival also features opportunities to receive free samples from sponsors, visit food vendors, enjoy an outdoor seating area, try out the brand-new Hero Zone — a trampoline photo op with an epic backdrop — and experience a first-ever Foam Blaster.
