In an effort to make running 5k a more enjoyable experience (if that’s even possible) the Yankees have come up with the ingenious plan of spraying runners with paint so that you end up sweaty and colourful! How fun does that sound?! Every runner must wear a white t-shirt and they get sprayed a different colour as they enter various ‘colour zones’. If you’re feeling peckish you can even eat the paint (the organisers’ suggestion not mine…). Applications open up in April for this Summer so if you’re popping over to America and fancy a colourful jog head on over to their website: http://thecolorrun.com. It’s probably wise to pack some goggles.
Apparently it’s ‘the happiest 5k on the planet’- to be fair these guys do look pretty happy…just think you could share in all that joy:
