If September is Fair season, July is definitely running season. Don’t let the high temperatures and heat waves fool you…

Three 5ks will be featured at Fairplex this summer, with themes ranging from neon to foam. This weekend kicks off with The Color Run. Like The Color Vibe in October (50 Shades of Running, anyone?) this run focuses more on having fun than on winning the race. Whether you are a natural-born couch potato or the fastest runner in the crowd, at the end of the race you will be covered in bright colors just like everyone else.

3.1 miles can seem like a walk in the park to some, or the equivalent of a full marathon for others. But it doesn’t matter whether you sprint, jog or walk.

If you can’t make it to The Color Run on Saturday you can still get messy and get a 5k in with Run or Dye (July 20)  and FoamFest (Aug 17). And by FoamFest we mean a mud run mixed with tons of soap bubbles.

Will you be running any 5ks this summer? Tell us in the comment section below!
