Have you heard of The Color Run?

Dubbed “The Happiest 5k on the Planet,” The Color Run is a 5-kilometer (3.1 mile) event in which the participants are doused with color at various points along the course.

At the end of each kilometer, runners pass through a color station dedicated to a single hue, where volunteers throw brightly dyed powder on the runners. The first station is yellow, then orange, blue, red, and finally, there’s a melee of all the colors at the finish. The end result is like a gleeful primary-colored Jackson Pollock painting on a canvas of happy humans.

Color Runs are happening across the US through the end of 2012. They do sell out, but new slots often open up even after registration is closed. If you can get yourself a spot, we highly recommend it.

It may sound crazy, but we can say from first-hand experience that it is definitely incredibly fun. How? We did it! A handful of the Blurberati participated in the San Francisco Color Run this weekend.

We love the idea of getting a bit of exercise together and having a great time while doing it, but of course the Blurb aesthetic runs deep – it was a fantastic photo opportunity!

  1. It looks like the Hindu festival of Holi (the Festival of Colors) was an inspiration for this.
