Color In Motion 5K | Chicago Recap | Join One Near You and Take the Kids!

I received our registration in exchange for this article.

A couple of weeks ago I told you about the Color In Motion 5K coming up in Chicago. Well it came and past and I took Becca, Gracie and Jack. The Color In Motion 5K in Chicago was a blast. I love fun runs like this because it’s not a “race” – it’s just for fun… and it WAS fun! It doesn’t matter if you’re not a runner or even if you’re a slow runner like we are because it’s all just for fun.

WHAT IS COLOR IN MOTION 5K?

Exactly that…. It is your moving body plastered in an explosion of vibrant color with all your friends!  How many times have you paid money to run around a few city blocks, drink a cup of warm Gatorade, eat a banana, and be given a t-shirt that you will probably only wear once every two months while doing yard work? Why not color outside the lines while being active, social, and a little wacky! The Color in Motion 5k gives you all these benefits plus unforgettable fun and heaps of memories!  By the end of the CIM5k your blank canvas will be brighter than ever–your clothes, health, and outlook on life will be changed for the better!

The Color In Motion 5K in Chicago was right along Lake Michigan. The weather was on the verge of raining the whole morning though so it was super foggy. On a clear day you can see out and it seems to go forever – but this day was so foggy that you could hardly see out at all. We were so happy that it didn’t rain though!

It had been raining the night before so there were some flooded areas. Still fun though!

The Color In Motion 5K was so much fun – you HAVE TO visit their site and see if there is one coming to a city near you and if there is – JOIN! If you have kids – BRING THEM! It’s seriously so much fun for the whole family. And like I said, these color runs are FUN runs. There’s no worries if you can’t run or if you are a slow runner because the point of going to a fun run is just that – TO HAVE FUN!

One thing that I enjoyed about this color run verses other color runs is that when you register and pick up your packet, you get a color packet along with the other items. So everyone was sprinkling themselves with color before the run even started. Not only sprinkling themselves, but others too. Gracie and Becca loved that! And then when the race started, they shot off color that you ran through. Such a blast! Check out the video that I took of the start line:

Comments

  1. That sounds super messy, but fun! Glad you had a good time.

  2. My oldest really wants to do one of these. They look like such fun! I’ll have to find one near me.

  3. I love that allow kids! So many races won’t allow kids to participate, but it teaches them that physical fitness can be fun!

  4. This looks like so much fun. wish we had something like that where we live.

  5. Were you sneezing colors all day long?! They have these runs in Atlanta, and they look like fun.

  6. My friend just ran one of these about a month ago and loved it! I always worried about getting it in my eyes.

    • When we go through an area where they are throwing a lot of it – we kind of squint and it helps it not get in our eyes. If it does get in, it kind of feels like dust.

  7. I’ve never participated in a color run. I love that it is a family event!

  8. These color runs look SO much fun! I definitely would love to participate in one sometime!

  9. I had NO idea there was that much color being tossed around. Oh my holy rainbows! That’s nuts and fun!

  10. Looks like fun! Is it safe to inhale that stuff?

    • I can’t imagine they would do something that is unsafe and there are a LOT of different color runs out there… but lots of people wear bandannas over their noses and mouths. You really only need it when you run through the color stations. All other areas are clear. It is only cornstarch though, not chemicals.

  11. Wow that’s a lot of color! I’ve always wondered, does it wash out easily?

    • Hmm… yes and no. Our first color run, my teen and her friend were CRAZY and picked up the colored powder and smeared it all over all of us and that went on thick! It took a few washes to get it out of our hair and out of our finger nails. As for the clothes – they stained. But you are given a shirt w/the logo so that was okay with me if it got stained. Now – I just saw another blog post about a different color run and she said that she washed her clothes and the color didn’t come out but she re-washed after using Shout spray on her clothes and she said the stains came completely out.

  12. I have never done this before but I would love to do it with my family! Looks like you had a blast!

  13. Looks like a great event. Fun family thing to do.

  14. I have heard so many great things about color runs! Everyone seems to have so much fun at them!

  15. I think it would be so awesome to participate in one of these events. It looks like the kids are having a great time as well.

  16. Best photos ever, lolol!! I love that the kids even got doused. This looks/sounds fun.

  17. These events make for some great shots! :) The kids look like they had a blast. I just want to go play in the colorful stuff.

  18. This looks like so much fun! You captured some great shots!

  19. We did the Color Vibe with kiddo last fall. It was so much fun!

  28. This looks like such a fun race. I can’t wait until I’m at the point I can participate in one around me.

  29. Sounds super messy, but fun! I love the pictures of the kids covered. I want to do one of these runs just because they look like fun.
