Grey isn’t the only color trending this year. In fact, it’s only one of many and they are all coming to Fairplex, thanks to the Color Vibe 5k.
Back in the day people used to run 5ks, 10ks, half marathons and full marathons in typical style, with sweat dripping from their foreheads, the endorphins and shouts of encouragement reflected in their bright eyes and the sound of the pavement being conquered under their sneakers. Lately, however, these events have taken running to a new level. Now it’s all about the color run. In a standard “color run,” participants walk, jog or run through the course while being pelted with different shades of the rainbow (in the form of safe but extremely bright dye). By the time they reach the finish line, each runner is coated in a fun mishmash of color as a testament to their 3.1 mile trek. The novelty of this experience draws beginners and regular runners alike into the fun of a 5k.
The leader of these events is The Color Run, with races happening throughout the nation. The race is, in their own words, “less about speed and more about crazy color fun,” open to all ages, couch potatoes and athletes. Similar to that is Color Me Rad and the Los Angeles based Color Dash.
