The Color Run 5k Baltimore

  • May 11, 2013 · 9:00 AM

Registration opens on Friday, February 15th.  Register early, other color run races have sold out the same day that registration opened. 

 

Visit the race website for registration info http://thecolorrun.com/baltimore/#race_info

 

WELCOME TO The Color Run™ 5k Baltimore!

The Color Run™ 5k is going down in Baltimore, MD on May 11th, 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.)

 

RACE RULES

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 by 9:00am.
Rule #3 Completely colored Willy Wonka goodness at the finish.

    I had an awesome time at the Color Run... Ran the 9:00am first wave, partied in the color pit then volunteered the 2:00pm run. Everyone was friendly and it was such a great time! I hope you all had a blast too!

    Running the 2pm w 2 out of state friends. I figure its gonna be way more crowded than the other Color Run I did, but if anyone wants to try to meet up, even just to say hi before the race, send me an email w your number. Not sure how often I'll be checking my phone, but we can try!

    May 11, 2013

  • Kurt

    Good news if you haven't heard, race will be run rain or shine. It would be great to meet up with some of you but I don"t have the faintest idea where or how since I won't be carrying a phone. Have a good run everyone!

    Line was very short when I went to pick up my package, less than an hour ago. Staff noted it will get very crowded later so now is good time to pick up if you can.

    May 10, 2013

  • Scott G

    No line at all around 1045AM :)

    May 10, 2013

  • Kurt

    Apparently, only 6,000 have picked up packets so far...another 19,000 people to go.

    I picked mine up today around 6ish and i only waited about 15 minutes. It wasn't that bad

    May 9, 2013

  • Kurt

    I just picked up my race packet. The line was about a block long. You may want to give yourself some time when picking up. I would suggest getting your race packet before race day. All the best!

    May 9, 2013

    • Kurt

      ...and the line was slow moving.

      May 9, 2013

    Anybody want to meet out in front of Luna Del Sea pre-race? Maybe 815ish?

      Caitlin, the person who claimed it can't do it after all. Can you please send me an email address? The one you sent appears to have a typo in it.

    Hi, I'm unable to do the race because of injury, is anyone interested in 2 9:00 spots? Active.com will allow transfers for this event. Message me if you're interested in both!

    By the way, this run is to benefit Coolkids my favorite benefit! If you have a big heart and wish to run for children with cancer, be sure to sign up for the Coolkids running festival on June 2nd with 5K and 10K options. There is also a 1 mile fun run, all to take place at the Goucher College campus.

  • Rebecca H.

    I created a team today, if anyone would like to join. The team name is "Hopeless Chromantics" and that's for the 2pm run. The 9am run is full, so if you haven't registered yet, that's ok, since there is room in the 2pm run. But, this race will fill fast, so be sure to register soon!

    Tried again and got in. ;)

    You can register for it now. They opened it up yesterday.

    • Kim

      Can you post the link to registration? When I click on the registration link on the race Website it tells me registration doesn't open until the 15th. Thanks!

    Kim, thanks for getting this organized so fast! I definitely will be registering on Friday. I would recommend a team registration, mostly because last year a $5 discount was offered when you registered with a team. So that basically covers whatever random Active.com fees get thrown at you. I don't have a team name yet, but suggestions are welcome! We can do something with our "RG3" name or a color-themed name, like Rainbow Bright or 50 Shades of Everything But Grey.

    As far wave starts, they were informal waves last year. Basically, just show up when you feel like it and get in line. I would recommend lining up 30 minutes before the race start if you plan to run this or get in line an hour after race start, again if you want to run. If you don't mind walking, frolicking, skipping, and milling around, then just start whenever.

    February 13, 2013

  • Kim

    Becca has done this race before, in another city, maybe she can chime in on the best wave and if we want to form a team.....or anyone else who has done a color run can chime in too :-)
