WELCOME TO The Color Run™ Roanoke, Virginia!
The Color Run™ 5k is going down in Roanoke, VA on June 15th, 2013! The only question is “Are you ready for the craziest, colorful, 5k of your life?” You bet you are. Race it solo or form a “color team” of 4+ members. Check out the race details below & we’ll see you all squeaky clean at the start line.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
The Color Run™ event is a one of a kind experience that is less about speed and more about enjoying a color crazy day with your friends and family. For our events, it is about participants of all different speeds, ages, shapes, and sizes toeing the start line. Whether you are a casual morning mall walker or an Olympic athlete, the 3 miles of The Color Run™ course will be the most enjoyable real estate you’ve traveled in a VERY long time. (If you have more questions about how it all works, check out our “ABOUT” page.)
Rule #1 Be kind to each other! All participants are welcome… fast, slow, runner, walker, old, and young.
Rule #2 Wear something white to the start line. Start time is 9:00am
Rule #3 DON’T THROW YOUR COLOR PACK BEFORE THE RACE. (We know it’s tempting, but trust us, you’re going to get all sorts of colorful soon enough. Save your personal color pack for the finish festival color throw. It is so worth the wait.)
Rule #4 Enjoy the colorful Willy Wonka goodness at the finish.
