Description

Color fun Fest 5k brings EPIC fun run to Phoenix on March 15!!!

What:  Color Fun Fest 5k is the child within that most people like to keep hidden. It is the that joyous feeling inside when you let go and really have fun. Its seizing the day, making a memory, and smiling uncontrollably.

 

Derived from the Holi Festival in India, Color Fun Fest celebrates life and seeks to bring people together. The energy is almost unreal; when youre standing there with thousands of people, counting down, and throw that first batch of colored powder into the air something inside of you changes. Its a real release. Its a release of frustration, a release of anger, a release of any negativity you may have. Letting it all go. The Holi Festival has roots in ridding oneself of past errors, and emphasizes forgiveness. Basing Color Fun Fest on these principles, we strive for ultimate positivity.

 

Pumping that energy into a 5k run, participants break through the start barrier- ready to take on anything. Electronic music floods the course as it pulsates through speakers, keeping up stamina. Before you know it, there is a color station with volunteers waiting to throw more color onto passing runners. Afterward, there is a large festival area for runners to cool down and hang out. Featuring a local artist, the festival is driven by massive speakers and DJ entertainment, with a vendor village full of local businesses. Choose from the day run or the night run full of black lights, and experience something unforgettable.

 

Why: A portion of the proceeds will be benefiting Free Arts for Abused Children, a nonprofit organization that gives children that have suffered adversity a chance to express themselves through art. Bring arts and crafts donations for the kids! The organization will be accepting donations at the event and there will also be a special performance by the children for all attendees.

 

Who should attend: Whole community- including kids/parents, couples, groups of friends, fitness gurus, dance enthusiasts, runners, joggers, walkers, bloggers, couch potatoes, the young, the old, and basically everyone and anyone that likes to have fun!

 

When: March 15, 2014 - First wave of runners at 4:30 pm, second wave at 7:30 pm

 

Where: Ak-Chin Pavillion, located at 2121 N. 83rd Ave, Phoenix AZ 85035
