I have been a competitive runner since 2008. Last year in 2018 I decided to take a break from super serious competitive running and have more fun with races. I am SO glad I did. My first fun race? The Color Run.
Confession. I had never participated in a Color Run. Huge mistake. Huge.
I will tell you, if you have never done one, sign up, NOW. There is a reason why it is called the Happiest 5k on the planet! No timing mats, you can walk or run, no pressure, just 100% FUN!

I was so excited to have an event my son actually wanted to do with me! Fun t-shirts and bright pink buffs didn’t hurt either, all about the swag! Some people were in colorful costumes adding to the festive atmosphere.
The start line is SO energetic with fantastic music!
As the race was underway you had different color zones you would go through. I was “that Mom” and was behind my son making sure everyone knew to hit him with ALL the color!
ORANGE AND YELLOW!
My son ran into classmates during the race making it even more fun. Unicorn Mile Markers along the way were fun to see and a great spot to stop and take a selfie!
*snort* my son getting hit with ALL THE COLOR!
If you’re not smiling and clean at the end, you did it wrong! This is my son and I mid way through the race shortly after going through the pink zone.
You get to see some unique parts of Las Vegas along the way.
There is a surprise just as you get to the finish. I was NOT expecting this part. It was a LOT of fun, I won’t spoil it for you, but I’ll just say this….BUBBLES.
The finish line is a huge carnival. Food trucks, more color, music, and more. I had so much fun I forgot to take pictures!
My son and I picked up MORE swag in the finish line carnival.
Last but not least. The MEDAL. A UNICORN!
I was hooked and kicking myself for waiting too long to have participated in a Color Run. I will be back in 2019 for sure! I am ready to #RUNWILD at the #HAPPIEST5K! I want to see you on the course! Come on out and find me and my son!
