The Color Run™ ARIZONA 2013!
The Color Run™ 5k is going down in Arizona on Saturday, January 26th 2013. The only question is “Are you ready for the craziest, colorful, 5k of your life?”
Some of your fellow Mensan's have indicated an interest in participating so I've created this meetup event to publize it.
The Listed Starting Time is not necessarily correct, I could not find the actual start time, just the date, check the offical webpage for it http://thecolorrun.com/arizona/

HOW DOES IT WORK?
The Color Run™ event is a unique experience focused less on speed and more on crazy color fun with friends and family. Color runners come from all different ages, shapes, sizes, and speeds; but everyone toeing the start line has a blast. Whether you are a casual morning mall walker or an Olympic athlete, the 3 miles of The Color Run™ course will be the most memorable and colorful run of your life! (If you have more questions about how it all works, check out our “ABOUT” page.)
Rule #1 All participants are welcome… fast, slow, runner, walker, old, and young.
Rule #2 White shirt dress code at the official start line and ready to roll!
Rule #3 Complete Picasso-painting-color-madness at the finish.
What is The Color Run™?
The Color Run™ 5k is a unique experience focused less on speed and more on crazy color fun with friends and family. Color runners come from all different ages, shapes, sizes, and speeds; but everyone toeing the start line has a blast. Whether you are a casual morning mall walker or an Olympic athlete, the 3 miles of The Color Run™ course will be the most memorable and colorful run of your life!
How does it work?
The Color Run™ event pretty much has TWO SIMPLE rules: 1) White shirts (any mostly white T will work great) mandatory at the start line. And 2) color plastered EVERYTHING at the finish! Runner/walkers begin the 5k at the start line like a brand new pristine coloring book. By the end, they look like they fell into a Willy Wonka… tie dyed… vat of colored goodness. We are the creators of an all new paint race phenomena!
What is the Color?
Each kilometer of the event is associated with a designated color: yellow, orange, pink, or blue. As the runners/walkers reach the Kilometer COLOR Zones, they are blitzed by our volunteers, sponsors, and staff with COLOR. All products are 100% natural and safe. You can eat the stuff if you’d like (we have tried it and don’t suggest it, it is surprisingly high in calories and leaves a chalky aftertaste). See the diagram below for the COLOR ZONE specifics. Of course, we save the best for last, ending the race with a color extravaganza of epic proportions.
What about the finish line?
I think we can safely say our finish line is the best post-5k party on the PLANET. After the finish, participants are encouraged to stick around, celebrate, and see exactly how much COLOR one person can handle. We will have food, color, and festivities that will make your color-powdered head spin.
*No runners were harmed in this finish line Color explosion. We did, however, fine them for having too much fun.
What if I have more questions?

Why haven’t I registered yet?
Well, this question is something only you can answer through meaningful soul searching. Maybe you don’t like fun? Maybe you have an irrational fear of color? Either way, in our expert opinion we think you are plain LOCO if you don’t give The Color Run™ 5k a shot! Check out “OUR LOCATIONS” for The Color Run™ near you.
