Basically, you start off in your whites, and at every 1k, there are “color experts” who throw a different colored powdered paint at you at every stop. Fun!
Hubby and I formed a team with my cousin, his wife and their son. Here is our team name:
Love it! My cousin’s wife had these cute t-shirts made for all of us and also picked up our matching sunglasses.
Here are hubby and I before the race:
There were so many people signed up that they had two waves. One 1:00 wave and one 4:00 wave. We were signed up for the 1:00 wave.
It was fun looking around at all of the people dressed up in wedding dresses, astronaut outfits, and other weird things…
Here’s our whole team before the race:
We didn’t cross the starting line until about 1:45. I think we were in the 15th wave of people to start. It was a really chilly day!
And then we were off! The race is meant to be fun and isn’t even timed. It’s such a great way to get so many people active. I saw all different shapes and sizes. Hubby and my cousin ran ahead together and the other three of us ran some but walked most of it. It was fun!
Now for the fun photos!
We paid the $5 to get unlimited professional photo downloads. They’re kind of fun. My cousin, third from the right, is the one who lost 125 lbs. Simply amazing, huh? I’m very proud of him! What an inspiration!
Even my socks were covered when I took my shoes off!
Overall, I had a lot of fun. It was a race experience like no other. I highly recommend giving it a try if they come to your area!
