So what do you get when you combine a 5k running race with a lot of colored powder flying at you along the route? You get a messy fun event to share with family and friends called The Color Run that will take place at the Central Florida Fairgrounds on Saturday, January 16th, 2016.

The Color Run

The Color Run is a new type of event that has been a success in other cities around the Country where race participants show up to the race in a plain white T-Shirt that is then dyed at 4 separate race zones along the course. Each zone has it’s own color of pink, blue, yellow, and orange.

The powder is perfectly safe to wear on your clothes and eat (if you really wanted to). We weren’t able to find exactly what it is made of but the website states that it is similar to a powdered-sugar food fight so we are guessing maybe powdered sugar and food coloring? Either way, the effect is cool to see and all of the participants in the videos and pictures look they are having a great time.
