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 on Saturday, May 11, 2013 at 9 a.m. and proceeds help benefit the charity partners Lane Goodwin Child Cancer Foundation, Active Heroes, and NC4K. The race entry also includes a $1.99 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.
