Picking-up the race packet was difficult as there was only a limited time and place to get it. The 5K race run by (mostly) switching back and forth through a parking lot. Had to pay a lot of money to park in the same parking lot that the race was run through (this was NOT disclosed at any time). No other parking was evident. The prior description of non-race activities were inflated. My daughter cut her leg on the free children's activities ( one small, run-down children's inflatable slide ). The whole event was poorly organized with lots of waiting around. Overall, I felt ripped-off even having used the Groupon.

The run felt disorganized. There was a massive line with no instruction (was it for packet pick up? Registration?) We and others behind us skipped the line and crossed a rope to go into the next wave. It seemed most people only were really covered in color by tossing the packets handed out at the finish line. Basically, it was all just underwhelming.

Had a great time. I wish there were a few more coloring stations, I think it was just five.

It was a fun day but I would not recommend it. The course was dull with tight loops through the parking lot at the fair grounds. No water at the finish line.

The directions said the race was at the fairgrounds but when we got there, we were directed to Crew Stadium. The run was around the stadium area and through the parking lot. It started late, it wasn't at all scenic, the end color toss was disorganized, and the color station throughout the course were very sparse.

What a blast for the whole family! It would be nice if the miles were marked and color packs for throwing were given out at the end.

From Our Editors

Scheduled in cities across the country, the Color Mania 5K Run offers runners of all ages the chance to sprint, jog, or mosey their way across a course splattered with prismatic color. As participants wind their way toward the finish line, packs of color throwers target them with a barrage of biodegradable, cornstarch-based dyes, turning their once-white attire into a kaleidoscopic fashion statement. The race organizers don't keep track of time; the point is not to win the race but to enjoy oneself. Each participant will receive a Color Mania T-shirt, race bib, and gifts from race sponsors. Participants aged 7 and younger can run for free with a guardian-signed waiver, but will not receive a T-shirt, bib, or gifts.
