The so-called "Happiest Race on the Planet" is coming to Des Moines July 13, 2013! The Color Run is a unique, family-friendly road race, encouraging healthy living and giving back. Plus, you're guaranteed to have a good time.
There are only two rules for this event:
- Wear white to race.
- Finish covered in color.
The Des Moines course begins at the State Capitol Building and takes runners throughout downtown. There will be start windows for the event, the first at 9 a.m. and the second at 1 p.m., with waves going approximately every few minutes.
"Color Zones" are located throughout the course, where you'll be pelted with colored, food-grade cornstarch, all 100 percent natural and safe. And not to worry, it doesn't hurt at all, allowing you to have a great time getting as colorful as possible!
But, the fun doesn't stop once you complete the course; a "Color Festival" is held at the finish line, featuring even more colored powder, making this truly a memorable event.
Bonus: The Color Run chooses a charity to benefit from the race at each race location. The Color Run - Des Moines is choosing Variety-the Children's Charity to receive proceeds from the event.
