all information filled out on this form goes 100% to my personal email address and I will guard it.
I AM SO EXCITED!! And just for the record this is my first ever “run” like this since I was a little girl, probably first EVER! so I will be training from the very beginning, as in this week! I was recommended the Get Running App by a friend, and will be using that to train, I also use RunKeeper, so I will see how that all works. I found this Great link on Zen Habits via the Get Running site with info for beginning runners:
A few FAQ from the official page:
Do I need to be some sweet ole’ runner to do this?
Oh my goodness, NO. There are plenty of other great 5ks out there to test speed and performance. The Color Run is all about a color crazy day with friends and family. You can run, walk, crawl, or cartwheel it if you wish!
How does a “Color Team” work compared with a solo runner?
Pretty simple, you register as a (4 minimum/infinity max) unit rather than as an individual. You get to pick a groovy custom team name, run/walk together, and “help” each other get really colored up over the 5 color kilometers. There is no “relay” component and team members can finish together as a unit or separately.
What is included with my Color Run registration?
Runners will receive custom Color Run race shirts, a bag of Color, race number, “Color Runner” finisher sweat band, donation to local charity, and Sponsor Goodies.
Do you donate to a charity or cause?
YES, we do. One of our greatest visions for the Color Run is bringing fun, memories, and fundraising to local communities. We select a different local organization for each city. To see the specific charity we use for each city, check out the location’s race page.
