The Color Run, The Happiest 5K on the Planet! [+Giveaway!]

Last year, I participated in The Color Run Brooklyn.

Color party!
If you don't already know about The Color Run, the following description is straight from their website:

"Less about your 10-minute-mile and more about having the time of your life, The Color Run is a five-kilometer, un-timed race in which thousands of participants are doused from head to toe in different colors at each kilometer. The fun continues at the finish line with a gigantic “Color Festival,” using more colored powder to create happiness and lasting memories, not to mention millions of vivid color combinations. Trust us, this is the best post-5k party on the planet!"

Check out the video below and make sure to read my recap of last year's run here!

*The Color Run is providing me with two free registrations for PB&P readers.  I was not compensated in any way for writing this post.  As always, the opinions are my own.


  1. The happiest race I've ever done is the Primal Mud Run, which I ran last year. It was real muddy and challenging, and I'll never forget it.

  2. Race I had the most fun in? Nyc marathon! It was a nonstop party!

  3. I did one last year and I'm doing the one in NJ in a couple of weeks! So FUN!

  4. I ran a race supporting Autism Awareness in the spring. I ran two weeks before beginning my new job as an at-home therapist for autism children, and it was incredible to run with so many people who supported the cause. There were over 600 runners, and I was almost in tears as the race began. Afterwards I got to spend time getting to know all my new coworkers, and meeting many of the clients I would be working with. Pure magic that day.

  5. My happiest race was the Drenched 5K I did with my son a month ago. It was awesome to do something with him and see him smile the whole time.

  6. My happiest race ever was the Red Shoe run. It is for Organ Donor awareness. It was so inspiring to run a race beside someone who was running the race with a donated heart.

  7. The happiest race I ran was a 5k on St. Patty's Day last year. Everyone was dressed up, including people cheering you on. It was a blast!
