Color Run: Quick Tips & Pictures!

6 Jul

This past weekend was the Color Run in Milwaukee and I had so much fun! For those who aren’t aware, the Color Run is the happiest 5K run and it’s all over the United States. Check it out here.  It was so much fun, I’d definitely sign up for this again next year! I was actually surprised at how much fun it was, considering I am definitely not one for running. But  I wanted to share some quick tips for those who are doing the Color Run elsewhere throughout the summer! There wasn’t as much running as I thought, only because there were a lot of family and kids walking around with strollers, so it was hard to run around them. But it was still so much fun nonetheless! If you ever get a chance, I’d say definitely give it a try. You don’t even have to run the whole time if you don’t want to!

Quick Tips:

1. Ziplock bag your phone, ID + credit cards and or camera if you’re bringing one. The powder gets everywhere and though it comes off, why not just prevent it from getting colorful in the beginning. So definitely bring some ziplock bags and cover your important items!

2. Definitely load up on some sunscreen before hand, and if you have a lighter shade of hair color, consider putting some coconut oil in your hair so the color doesn’t stain.

3. Bring wet wipes or baby wipes for after the race! It definitely helps take some of the colors off before getting into the car. Don’t forget to line some towels and garbage bags on your seats so the colors do not get all over your car!

4. Bring a set of clean clothes to change into and also a garbage bag to place your old color filled clothes into before getting into the car.

5. Take advantage of the water stations during the race, especially if it’s going to be a hot day! It was in the mid 80s during my run and I definitely could feel my shoulders slowly roasting from the sun.
