I recently turned 29 and I’ve got a few goals that I want to complete by the time I’m 30. One of them is to participate in a 5K. I’ve looked at a few that are coming to St. Louis and I’ve decided there is just one that I want to run and that’s The Color Run aka The Happiest 5K on the Planet!
What is The Color Run?
The Color Run™, also known as the Happiest 5k on the Planet, is a unique paint race that celebrates healthiness, happiness, individuality, and giving back to the community.
It’s 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!
With only two rules, the idea is easy to follow: Wear white at the starting line and finish plastered in color!
Run as a Color Team!
You can register as a (4 minimum/infinity max) unit rather than as an individual. You get to pick a groovy custom team name, anything from The Roy G Biv All-stars to We Sweat Rainbows. You then get to 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.
When you register as a team of 4 or more, it’s automatically $5 cheaper plus you can use the promo code below on top of that and save $10!

If you’re interested in participating in The Color Run, I’ve got a promo code for you to use!
Make sure to check out and see if The Color Run is coming to your city to register. Use the code COLOR5OFF when registering.
The code is valid for ALL cities however most all of the races sell out, so sign up now! The promo code will NOT guarantee you a spot in the race so make sure to enter soon!
