What a day! Instead of just writing about an exciting new running event, we put ourselves right in the middle of it. The crew from DietsInReview.com participated in the increasingly popular Color Run over the weekend in Tulsa, OK. This event was unlike any other running event, or any other event, period.
I’ve been in huge crowds at running events before, but not like this. It’s reported that the sold-out Color Run in Tulsa had 10,000 participants! “Team DietsInReview.com” consisted of myself (Lacy Hansen), Brandi Koskie, Dana Shultz, and even my 8-year-old-son Judah.

One of the most popular excuses given for not exercising is that “it’s boring.” While that statement has been debatable all along, it’s being eradicated recently. With adventure events popping up all across the globe, “boring” and “exercise” will never be in the same sentence again. The Color Run is a prime example of how people are adding a little color to their exercise routine, literally.
The Color Run is a booming event that is truly like no other. The event is simply stated in its name, a run with color. The run is on a three mile course designed for all abilities, shapes, and sizes, making it perfect for someone’s first 5K race. Participants are only instructed to do a few things: Line up at the start with a white shirt and plan to be doused in color by the finish.
The Color Run puts little emphasis on completing the course fast (the race is not timed) and a high priority in being the most saturated with color at the end. The race is sectioned off into color zones every kilometer. At each station runners and walkers are hit with a natural and safe color dust (they say it’s edible but very high in calories). The 1k color zone is yellow, the 2k is blue, 3k is green, 4k is pink, and the 5k finish is a “color extravaganza.” (more…)
