I am a fair-weather runner, so my running season is just getting started for this year. I love running races -- there is just something about the energy at a race, big or small, that is exciting and just so FUN! But, as the penny-pincher I am, I am always looking for a deal: either an inexpensive race or one with what I call "added value" -- great swag (the free stuff you get to take home - shirt, etc), amazing party at the finish line, and/or a super fun experience.
The Color Run is coming to Salt Lake City on August 24: it has all of the "added value" I look for in a race, plus a completely reasonable entry fee (only $25 if you register as a team using the promo code below before May 1 -- more registration info below).
The Color Run isn't your ordinary 5K. Instead of finishing the race just sweatier than you started, you finish more colorful than you've ever been! Participants are doused from head to toe in different colors at each kilometer, so you start with a white shirt and end up with a one-of-a-kind colored shirt -- and face! (Check out the videos from past events here.)
If you are new to running or concerned about your pace -- don't worry! The Color Run is untimed, and less about your average mile time and more about having a good time! The color fun continues with a big colorful party at the finish line.
All participants are welcome -- young, old, fast, slow, runner, walker, and everything in between. The Color Run only has two simple rules:
- Wear white at the starting line.
- Finish completely plastered in color.
So, get registered!
Registration is limited, so sign up now because you won't want to miss it! Use the code COLORJUSTLU to save $5 on your registration until August 21. You can save another $5 by registering as part of a team (4+ people), so grab some friends and sign up for only $25 each (until April 30). If you miss the early registration or would rather be solo, the pricing is only a little bit different:
