Running was popular in Europe long before it caught on in America, which is why most races are measured in kilometers and why most of the Pilgrims were eaten by bears. Race to the top of the food chain with this Groupon.
- $40 for entry for two to the Color Blaze 5K (a $70 value)
The race takes place on Saturday, September 14 at the Clark County Expo Center. Registration begins at 8 a.m., and the first Blaze begins at 11 a.m. White t-shirts, protective eyewear, and seat covers for cars returning from the race are recommended. Children 8 and under are admitted free with a registered guardian.
Color Blaze 5K
Wear white, and be prepared for that shirt to never look the same. That's just about the only rule of the Color Blaze 5K, a technicolor event that's a little different than the standard run. For one, contestants don't have to run at all—in fact, they can mosey, lollygag, skip, crawl, jog, and backflip their way along the course. Rather than determining the best time, the non-competitive race is about the experience itself. At each successive mile, Blaze Zones powder participants in biodegradable—and even edible—colors, creating an army of fleet-footed Jackson Pollocks. Proceeds from the event benefit local charities, and an afterparty welcomes the newly prismatic to dance the day away in their freshly illustrated get-ups.
