Color Run coming to Tulsa June 23

More fun than your average 5K: The Color Run. It's coming to Tulsa June 23 ( photo).

Do you like to run? Are you into goofy fun? Want to raise money for a good cause and have some fun with friends?

Then circle June 23 on your calendar and sign up quick for the Color Run.

This is how organizers describe it:

What is the Color Run?
The Color Run is a one of a kind experience that is less about speed and more about enjoying a color crazy day with your friends and family. Our events, are all about people of all different speeds, ages, shapes, and sizes toeing the start line. Whether you are a casual morning mall walker or an Olympic athlete, the 3 miles of the Color Run course will be the most enjoyable real estate you’ve traveled in a VERY long time.  You will love this Color Dash of fun!

How does it work?
The Color Run pretty much has 2 SIMPLE rules. 1. White shirts (any mostly white T will work great) mandatory at the start line and 2. Color plastered EVERYTHING at the finish!  Runner/walkers begin the 5k at the start line like a brand new pristine coloring book, they end looking like they fell into a Willy Wonka… tie dyed… vat of colored goodness.

What is the Color?
Each kilometer of the event is associated with a designated color.  1k is yellow, 2k is blue, 3k is green, 4k is pink, and the 5k finish is a “Color Extravaganza.”  As the runners/walkers hit the Kilometer COLOR RUNZones, they will be blitzed by our volunteers, sponsors, and staff with COLOR.

Funds raised in the race will benefit the Tulsa River Parks Foundation. The race itself will take place at River Parks.

You can register now, and organizers encourage people to do it soon as it tends to fill up fast.
