Color Fun Fest! Win Tickets to this Color 5K Run | @ColorFunFest #Giveaway #Fitness

While on my quest to look for my next 5K run, I ran into the Color Fun Fest perfect for the whole family!  I would love to give away entries to this fun 5K run to my readers!

You have heard of Color Runs before and this one is a little different as it starts in the afternoon and goes into the night for extra fun!

WHAT:   Color Fun Fest 5k is the child within that most people like to keep hidden. It is the that joyous feeling inside when you let go and really have fun. It’s seizing the day, making a memory, and smiling uncontrollably.

Derived from the Holi Festival in India, Color Fun Fest celebrates life and seeks to bring people together. The energy is almost unreal; when you’re standing there with thousands of people, counting down, and throw that first batch of colored powder into the air… something inside of you changes. It’s a real release. It’s a release of frustration, a release of anger, a release of any negativity you may have. Letting it all go. The Holi Festival has roots in ridding oneself of past errors, and emphasizes forgiveness. Basing Color Fun Fest on these principles, we strive for ultimate positivity.

Pumping that energy into a 5k run, participants break through the start barrier­ ready to take on anything. Electronic music floods the course as it pulsates through speakers, keeping up stamina. Before you know it, there is a color station with volunteers waiting to throw more color onto passing runners. Afterward, there is a large festival area for runners to cool down and hang out. Featuring a local artist, the festival is driven by massive speakers and DJ entertainment, with a vendor village full of local businesses. Choose from the day run or the night run full of black lights, and experience something unforgettable.

WHY: A portion of the proceeds will be benefiting a new startup charity called Flight For Cystic Fibrosis. Founder Vincent Palacio is a skydiving instructor that also happens to have CF. This organization gives children with Cystic Fibrosis a chance to feel alive by experiencing the incredible feeling of skydiving through wind tunnels and jumps. The mission of this program is to show these kids how to overcome fears and feel hope, bonding families and encouraging healthy living, which is vitally necessary for a person with Cystic Fibrosis.

WHO: The team of Color Fun Fest has a colorful track record, to say the least. From extreme sports to EDM events to epic 5k runs, the team constantly grows with experience in throwing the best events you’ll ever attend. Brought together from different backgrounds and skill, this eclectic team values satisfaction. Color Fun Fest takes on America in 2014, touring to upwards of 20 different cities across the country. This new company on the block seeks to make big moves in the coming years, hoping to go international by the end of 2014.


WHO SHOULD ATTEND? Whole community­ including kids/parents, couples, groups of friends, fitness gurus, dance enthusiasts, runners, joggers, walkers, bloggers, couch potatoes, the young, the old, and basically everyone and anyone that likes to have fun!
