the color run

The Color Run is back and is coming to a city near you on its Kaleidoscope Tour! You may remember when my oldest girls and I ran this 5K last year and I can tell you from personal experience that it is a blast! We had so much fun and it’s super family friendly. It’s not called the happiest 5K on the planet for nothing.

The race itself is not intimidating. It’s not timed and there’s no pressure to get your personal best time; the organizers just want to get you moving and have a fabulous time in the process. In fact, more than half of the participants are first-time 5K runners (and more than half just walked in the race we were in)! If you’ve never heard of the Color Run, it’s basically a 3.1 mile course with checkpoints that cover you in colors throughout the race and then a TON of colors at the finish. Again, it really is so much fun.

To join in on the fun, find your local race and use code COLOR5OFF to get $5 off your registration fee! Plus, when you register as a team (4 or more people), you’ll get an extra $5 off which makes it a $10 discount with the coupon code! There is a processing fee, but you’ll be paying $34.94 versus the $44 (after fees) individual sign-up.

To make it even better, the Color Run is offering some great swag that’s even better than last year’s! You’re gonna get a really fun and colorful t-shirt, headband, wristband, and sling bag. Check out the Color Run website for even more information and details about your local race.

If you don’t have a team in the Columbia, SC area, feel free to join under team Southern Savers. The race is March 1st, and we’ll all have a blast together!

      FYI: In an effort to add recreation to my life without the cost, I volunteered to work the race. I had an awesome time! Scored great freebies and it was all free! You can’t bring the kids if you volunteer for the race but it was a great stress release for this stay at home mom.

        someone said to not copy and paste it…….it might also only be good on the regular registration instead of the early one.
