Color in Motion 5K
November 17, 2012
On Saturday, November 17, 2012 Color in Motion 5k is coming to the Dallas Cotton Bowl Fair Park. The Color in Motion 5k Run is a fun run for all who want to combine exercise and an incredibly great time. After each kilometer of the race, volunteers throw colored powder at the runners covering them from head to toe. There will be an after party with vendors, music, dancing and color galore. In addition to having a great time, a portion of each runner’s registration fees will be going to benefit a local charity in the Dallas Fort Worth area.
This 3.1 mile Color in Motion 5k Run is not about obtaining a personal best running time, it is about enjoying time with friends and family all while being a human canvas with color everywhere. Participants can run as individual participants or they can create a team, whichever they prefer. No matter your age or physical ability you can participate in this event. Physical wellness is an essential part of any happy, healthy lifestyle, so why not have fun while becoming healthier? Children are welcome if accompanied by an adult.
The idea of throwing color, as is done at Color in Motion 5k races, began with the Hindu holiday called Holi. This holiday originated as a festival marking the end of winter and beginning of spring. It also has religious significance in the Hindu religion based from an ancient story. Today this holiday is celebrated with a festival of colors. The holiday involves singing, dancing, celebrating and a relaxing of the caste system for the day. Runs like Color in Motion 5k, have been sweeping the nation as a unique alternative to the classic 5K races. Color in Motion 5k races are held throughout the United States, year-round.
