Dallas, TX, June 11, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- The Color Mob 5K hits Dallas on Saturday, July 6 2013 and will transform a horde of runners and walkers into a living work of abstract art. Colored cornstarch will be hurled at entrants as they make their way through the course in this fun run, and there will be live music and a beer garden to greet 5K participants when they cross the finish line as newly minted color abstractions that would make any artist proud.
In the Color Mob 5K, it’s suggested participants wear white to fully maximize the effect of passing through these vivid Technicolor clouds. Costumes are always welcomed too. The colored corn starch used to “paint” the 5K-ers may take more than one wash to get out of clothing, though, so it goes without saying that no one should show up wearing their Sunday best. Color Mob 5K is open to all ages, with children under age 7 getting in for free. The colorful event will take place from 8:00 AM to 11:00 AM at Fair Park (with registration beginning at 7:00 AM).
While strollers are certainly welcomed, pets will have to stay at home, no matter how adorable they would look covered in bright powder. And for the more serious racers, there’s no reason to bring your custom timing chips because the point of this 5K isn’t to set any personal bests (and it will not be timed); the point is to get blasted with clouds of color and come out the other side of the course looking like the exterior of a hippie bus.
Early birds will get the better deal on tickets for the event. Prior to June 22nd, the tickets run at a discounted rate. Registration is non-refundable but is transferable. So what are you waiting for? Get signed up and get colorful. For more information or to register visit http://cmdallas2013.eventbrite.com/.
