This is a brand new run that is coming to Atlanta in the fall of 2014. The event is not timed and is a great opportunity leave your GPS at home and run for the sake of running and fun or to bond with your slower friends and relatives without having to worry about the clock. What is so special about this run? Well, this run will add color to your life by making sure that you are literally covered in it by the time you cross the finish line. Wouldn’t you like to look like an original piece of art? Yep, me too. I hear that if you soak your color stained shirt in white vinegar you will end up with a tie dye pattern to remember the race by. However, if you are not into color and would like to have your shirt back to its original condition, just wash it in cold water.

If you need an excuse to start drinking before noon, here it is. This is a 5K that is designed to quench your guilt of pounding beer at a local bar on an early weekend morning. The event has a late start. Come on, we all know you partied the night before and won’t get up before 9 am anyway. There will be plenty of water stations along the route to make sure that you are properly hydrated and there will be plenty of beer afterwards to make sure that you replace all those calories you lost.  Really, it is a great way to spend a weekend morning with your friends while doing something that is fitness and beer related.
