Who wouldn’t want to be covered in colorful, bright powder all day!? I recently participated in my first Color Run and was so excited it was close to home at Dodger Stadium. My friends and I decided to do it very last minute (typical) and I knew I wanted to bring my GoPro along.
It was a pretty cloudy day which was nice since we didn’t have the sun on us all day. The crowd was much larger than I expected too! We each got our own race kit with a shirt, our number, some tattoos and a sweatband. We gathered along the Start line and started running in waves just to kill the crowding a little bit.
As we ran through each color station, dozens of people along the sidelines blasted us with color! Sunglasses are definitely a good idea if you plan on participating in a Color Run since they help shield your eyes from the powder. And don’t worry about being the best runner – secret fact: my friend and I pretty much walked the whole thing so we could get pictures…whoops!
Once we crossed the finished line, there were already people crowded around the stage listening to the DJ. This was easily my favorite part of the day because every time the bass dropped, everyone threw their color packets into the air!
Here’s a little video I put together for you guys to show you how awesome it was 🙂 I recommend putting it in HD before clicking play so you can get the whole effect!
All video shot with my GoPro Hero4 Silver.
I definitely recommend doing a Color Run at least once. It was such an awesome day and even though it was very messy, it was worth it!
Here are some of my tips for anyone who is thinking about signing up 🙂
-if you have light colored hair, put some oil in it before so the color doesn’t stain your hair
-bring towels and a change of clothes for the ride home so the car doesn’t get destroyed haha
-wash everything immediately after, including your shoes
-if you’re sweaty and/or greasy from sunscreen, the color will stick to you more so just be prepared!
-be aware you might get a tanline on your face should you choose to apply a tattoo
Overall, the whole experience was awesome. If you want to find out if there’s a Color Run coming near you, check out their site HERE!!
