How Is This Race Different?

Sure, there are all sorts of runs at night. Most, give you a wimpy glow necklace and send you on your way…BORING!!! We take it to the next level (because isn’t that what Americans do?) You will get completely covered in glowrific color dust with friends, family and silly strangers, while focusing more on the different color fun and participating in the three mile course, at night, under the cool glow of black lights. Doesn’t matter how fast or old you participate on the color run but getting up on the start line to get covered in color.

There are a few rules though (less than filing taxes, more than shampooing):

  • Wear a white shirt
  • Prepared to get covered in color
  • Repeat
