During color party 5K, participants move at their own pace, getting covered in color bombs made of cornstarch—known as "magical pixie dust." This Groupon includes a colorful t-shirt, custom race bib, custom headband, tattoo, post-race photos, and color packet.
Color Up 5K
It's a 5K that's "more fun than run." In fact, contestants don't have to run at all. They can run, walk, skip, stroll, or even stroll while pushing a stroller. At the Color Up 5K in College Station, there are no timers and there's no pressure. The only thing a contestant needs is a partying spirit, sunglasses or goggles, and preferably a white shirt to serve as a cotton canvas for the trek's frequent explosions of technically edible cornstarch colors. With plumes of technicolor fumes that would inspire Francis Scott Key descendants to pen another tune, the Color Up 5K sends friends and families on a kaleidoscopic quest punctuated by giggles and gentle chromatic showers.
Besides the glee of fellowship between contestants, the post-race color party also benefits community-based charities. Color Up 5K donates $5 from every race fee to Keep Brazos Beautiful.
