Humans often relax by communing with nature: hiking over mountains, running through a park, and eating berries indiscriminately. Get your fill of the outdoors with this Groupon.
$25 for Registration for One (Up to $50 Value)
Runners show up wearing white to sprint, jog, or walk the 5K course, all the while being pelted with bright, washable paint. The race is held at 5:30 p.m. on Friday, July 26, and proceeds help benefit the Colorado Springs Sports Corporation. The race entry also includes a $3.99 processing fee not covered by this Groupon.
Though Color in Motion 5K sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
Color in Motion 5K
Throngs of excited runners crouch along the starting line, all dressed in pristine white T-shirts. As the Color in Motion 5K begins, the sea of bodies sets off along the course, where handfuls of purple-, blue-, and yellow-colored powder start flying in from the sidelines. The safe concoction of cornstarch and dye sprinkles onto faces, shirts, shorts, and skin, dressing runners in a technicolor haze. Teams or individuals make their way through the 5K course, and finish the race wearing a pallet of washable and biodegradable paint. Each race partners and benefits local charities, with racers running individually, in teams, or sponsored by their favorite Crayola color.
