having photographed many 5K runs and marathon events I was pretty excited when Color & Glow called me to cover their event in Atlanta. Usually 5K's are early morning and end around mid Day when the weather is sun is burning up then I end up taking a "nap" for the rest of the day. Well Color and Glow run is like no other. it was an evening Run which ended with a huge Party. It's not a Competitive or obstacle course and was open to all ages!
So what's so Great about the Color and Glow run Compared to all the others?
At first I was a little concerned having read many horror blogs of people's gear getting destroyed by the fine particles of paint from other color runs. After speaking with event organizers I was assured they use a liquid Paint. so yes, you can take selfies along the way without destroying your phone, It starts with a stage performance Dj and paint, and glow giveaways. you get your shirt and as the Sun comes down it's time to make you glow!!!!
Of course there is those competitive types who came to Run, and beat their best time.... this is one of those events that is easy to get distracted with so much paint, and surprise paint stops and Glow lights it's too cool not to stop and take a selfie
Color and Glow does have a track of about 15 more stops this year, check out the Color and Glow Run facebook page for the stop closest to you.
