If night races are your thing, then Blacklight Run on June 6 is the event for you. Great for kids and adults of all ages, this 5k run/walk offers fun for the whole family. Participants get covered in UV Neon Glow Powder that gives them a brilliant glow in the Blacklight Zones at the after party. Benefiting Children’s Hospital, this event will certainly be a night to remember.
The Color Run
Commonly known as “The Happiest 5k on the Planet,” The Color Run is an un-timed 5-kilometer race during which colors are thrown on participants at each kilometer. The Color Run is focused on fun and has only two rules: to wear white and to end the race plastered in color.
The Shine Tour – the next generation of The Color Run – is coming to Amarillo June 27 and will benefit the Laura W. Bush Institute for Women’s Health.
Similar to The Color Run, Color Vibe is a 5k run/walk that douses participants with color throughout the race. It, too, is un-timed, so there’s no pressure to finish fast – just have fun with it! As a family-friendly event, kids are invited to participate, and anyone 12 or younger is free. Another fact you may be interested to know is that Color Vibe partners with charities in each of the cities it comes to, meaning that when you register, you support your very own community. The race date has not yet been scheduled.
