Run or Dye – The World’s Most Colorful 5K – is Coming to Chicago!
(and other cities too)

I’m so excited because me and Emma and Becca have been trying to get healthier this year. We’ve bettered our diet and we’ve become more active by joining our local gym down the street. We’ve also joined a few upcoming runs, Run or Dye being one of them! I’ve only done walks, same with the girls so we are all excited to get blasted with color as we do the Run or Dye 5K in Chicago. I’d love if Mike did this with us, we could bring Jack and Gracie in the jogger stroller – they would have a blast!

What is the Run or Dye 5K?

Run or Dye, the world’s most colorful 5K, is headed to Toyota Park on May 24 2014!  Bring all your friends and run a color-blasted 5K, where you get showered in safe, eco-friendly, plant-based cornstarch dye every kilometer. Then enjoy our world-famous Dye Festival afterward, where you can Tie-Dye the Sky (not to mention all your friends!) in this ultimate celebration of life, friendship, fitness, and fun.

Run or Dye is for absolutely everyone! Whether you’re a recovering couch potato or an avid marathon runner, you’ll love the atmosphere and experience at Run or Dye. You’re welcome to walk, run, dance, or skip your way to the finish line. And Run or Dye is family-friendly — kids 6 and under participate for FREE and do not require registration!

Looks like fun, huh?

Have you done a color run before? I want to hear about it!

We Have It All
We Have It All


  1. This looks so fun! Its been a few years since i’ve ran a 5k! Need to do it again!

  2. I did one of these last year with a group of people I work out with. So fun!

  3. I´ve seen videos and photos of this run and it is something I would love to take part in if I ever should visit Chicago at that time.

  4. that sounds fun and great cause too 🙂 I wish I could join but am sure, I’ll be the last to finish 🙂

    • Well that’s what’s awesome about these fun runs – it’s not a race. It’s all just for fun and you can walk, run, skip or dance across that finish line 🙂 That’s why people bring their little kids in strollers – it’s so much fun!

  5. That really makes the event more fun! Congrats on getting healthier!

  6. This looks so fun, if I were near there I would come.

  7. I have US friends who have done these races before and I would LOVE to do one! If only they had them here in the UK 🙁

    • Hey Sara – Jayne! You know that run or dye is now in the UK?! I’m signed up for London! And if you use the code SIMPELLE you can get £3 off entry to nay of the UK events! check out the website and see if they have any near you!!

  8. Ok, so I never thought I’d hear myself say these words 🙂 but that run looks like a ton of fun to do! They have something similar in Canada, I think, as well.

  9. That looks like a fun run. I have been wanting to train for a 5K

  10. Is there a color slow jog? That’d be more my speed. Looks fun though!

  11. This sounds like sooooo much fun! I have been getting into shape and running a bit each day, so I am hoping to do this one day soon.

  12. I know that my husband was interested in this run a few months ago. Of course, we live in the Dallas area. It sounds like a great event, thank you for sharing.

  13. This looks like a wild time!

  14. WOW This Sounds Like So Much Fun!

  15. This looks like so much fun. I have always wanted to run through the color plumes, but I am so not in the kind of shape one should be in to go and do that!

  16. I originally wanted to do a run like this but then heard that the dye isn’t good for people with breathing problems – which I have. Figure I’ll have to cheer from a distance instead of running it.

  17. I’ve heard so much about this and it looks so fun! I’m going to pass the coupon code along to my husband’s family that live in Chicago – they are big runners!

  18. OMG! That looks like so much fun!!!!! I would love to do something like that with my older kids 🙂

  19. Those are so much fun! I have wanted to participate in something like this before. Thanks for the coupon code! Happy running!

  20. That would be a race never to forget. It seriously looks like the most fun!

  21. I want to do an event like this so bad, but I’m not allowed to because I have severe asthma. I can’t wait to see your photos though!

  22. Looks like so much fun! I’ve never done anything like this but I’d love to get a bit childish while working on my health and fitness.

  23. I’m not a runner so I’d have to do a color walk but this looks like a fun new trend to get people excited about getting up and moving!

  24. I think these kinds of events look so fun! I’d do this if the weather was not too cold.

  25. I have heard those are lots of fun. Is the paint hard to get out/off?

  26. The Run or Dye in my area (Palm Bay) is next week, and I am so excited!
