Life Lately: The Color Run Love Tour

One tradition we look forward to every summer is completing The Color Run together as a family. It is the best 5K for families, in my opinion. My niece has grown up doing The Color Run every year and loves exploring the new themes each summertime. Although we loved this year’s Love Tour, the bright color stations, groovy tie-dye, and flower power, I think Brianna’s favorite was a few years ago when she got to run through a cloud of glitter. It was her dream and our worst nightmare! Ha!

If you are looking for a fun way to get outside, get active, and enjoy some fun together, check out The Color Run. They tour all year long to cities across the United States.

Here are some highlights from our day & some FAQ’s…

Ready, Set, Go! Here we are the starting line!
Still sporting our very white t-shirts before hitting the course and getting color-fied!
The first color station was a gorgeous lime green & teal! 2 for the price of 1!!
Brianna and I sporting our first color splashes!
Next came cobalt blue! We were so excited!
The third color station also had 2 colors…sunshiny yellow & a coral pink! It was our favorite station!
My sweet sister who was super bummed we missed the last color station. Check out my Instagram Stories to see the purple graveyard we happened upon near the finish line! It was a sad sight! Apparently the purple station was super popular!
We made it to the finish line where Bri Bri abruptly broke into dance.
We LOVED the unicorn medals this year on the Love Tour,
& we loved all the photo stations…
We just had to get right in the middle of this color throw! It was epic!
Living my best life.

What is the Color Run?

The Color Run is family-friendly 5K (3.5 miles) run/walk/roll that dowses “runners” in colorful powder every kilometer and supports local charities.

What should I expect?

You can expect to start the race sparkly clean and end a bit more colorful than at the beginning. Also expect to see unicorns and tutus, people of all shapes and sizes, strollers and wheelchairs, young and old all having a blast. And you definitely don’t want to miss the epic after-party where you can take selfies, enjoy treats, dance with the DJ, and participate in an amazing color throw.

How do I find a Color Run near me?

To find a Color Run near you, click here. They change tour themes every year so no run is the same. That is part of the fun! Also, they tour all year long in cities all across the United States.

How much does it cost?

The Color Run varies in price depending on if you want your packet delivered to your home or not. Our race packets were delivered right to our door for $45. The packet included our t-shirt, bib, tattoo, and a groovy tie-dye bandana. The price also includes color packets and a golden medal at the end of the race.

All these items were included in my packet other than the fuchsia tutu! That’s available in The Color Run store.

I really really hope you get the chance to do The Color Run with your friends and family. What questions do you have left? Let me know in the comments and be sure to get you the answer!

  • Thanks for sharing the fun! Living far away from Michigan means I miss out on a lot of what’s going on in the lives of Doug, Megan, and Brianna, so posts like this are very much appreciated!
