Color Vibe runs have gotten incredibly popular in cities across the country. Basically runners get splashed with colored powder as they run or walk the race. Runners get blasted at every color station throughout the 5K run. The Color Vibe 5K will be held at the W.H. Lyon Fairgrounds located at 100 North Lyon Blvd in Sioux Falls on Saturday. The race begins at 9:00am and organizers say they will release waives every 5 minutes or so. Organizers recommend getting there 45-60 minutes early so you have plenty of time to park and stretch. They say the entire event should be wrapped up by 11:00am or Noon.
Race packets will be available for pickup on Friday morning. If you've registered for the event you should get an email for more details about packet pick-up.
Organizers say the color powder is custom manufactured and produced right here in the United States. They say it is made from food grade quality cornstarch using an advanced manufacturing process that has been custom developed for the Color Vibe Race Series. It is non-toxic, 100% safe, and also biodegradable. However, organizers say as with any substance, you will want to keep it out of your eyes and lungs. If you are overly sensitive, you may want to wear glasses or goggles for your eyes and use a bandana or dust mask for your mouth.
Kids are allowed at this event. Kids 7 and under are free, but will not receive a shirt. Organizers say all kids must have a release waiver signed by a parent/guardian and turned in before they are allowed to participate. The waiver can be obtained and signed at the event.
The Color Vibe races are held in cities all over the country. The past three races have completely sold out. From here the Color Vibe will move to Victorville, California.
