Race Preview: The Color Run 2014 Kaleidoscope Tour

Race Preview:  The Color Run 2014 Kaleidoscope Tour! 

If you haven't tried The Color Run yet, now is your chance!  This race series is an untimed event that offers all runners, walkers and joggers of every fitness level a chance to enjoy a fun race environment and festive atmosphere.  It is events like these that allow me to drag my husband out onto the running scene too.  It is a great time for the whole family.  My husband doesn't feel the pressure of trying to keep up to my past race PRs and the kids absolutely love all the color!

To make events like this fun, here's a few tips:

* Leave the gps and timer at home.  Don't worry about the distance and how fast you can get it done.  This "race" is about the event. Do it with a group of friends and kick back and have fun.

* Wear all white.  The color will stick best if you wear cotton.

* Bring a camera (or your phone), but keep it in a ziplock bag.

* Color is dyed 100% food grade cornstarch, however it is not a terrible idea to consider a bandanna to cover your nose or goggles to cover your eyes.

2014 kicks off a brand new Kaleidoscope Tour!  And The Color Run has all sorts of great, colorful gear for participants too!  

That is a lot of swag!  A colorful event t-shirt, a color packet for the party at the finish line, headband, bracelet, temporary tattoo and a sling bag!  Nice!
