This particular race was not organized very well.

First, we had to wait for two hours in the rain just to check in. That's ridiculous! Then the announcer told us there would be people in orange shirts along the course telling us where to go and throwing color at us. I was in the second group of runners and I saw only 2 people in orange shirts and they were not paying attention nor did they throw color at us. The course itself was nice but the whole thing was disorganized and not even worth the Groupon price much less the $70 per person regular price.

Not organized, no color left when they FINALLY got around to letting us run, accused me of stealing color packets when I had bought them! HORRID!!!!

So fun...too bad the weather didn't cooperate! I would def do this again...really liked that all proceeds went to a good cause (Alzheimer's) as opposed to someone's fat wallet!

From Our Editors

Sprinting around with a beet-red face glistening with sweat is no way to run a 5K; it's much better to add some other colors to the mix. During the 5KColorFest, participants run, jog, or walk along a three-mile course that periodically explodes with color (courtesy of safe, non-toxic color powder made from cornstarch). After getting pelted with every color of the rainbow, racers compare their newly chromatic outfits at a post-race party complete with live DJs and dancing. All proceeds from the 5KColorFest benefit scientific research on cancer and Alzheimer's disease.
