I’m a Color Run Ambassador!


After seeing how much fun Lauren (aka Salt) had as an ambassador for the Color Run in Baltimore, I knew I had to get in on that action. After emailing the company and filling out an application, I was asked to be an “elite” ambassador (I have no idea if there are different levels of ambassador, but hooray for being elite!)

This is exciting for multiple reasons. First of all, I get a discount code to share with all of you cool cats (although it’s only for the Burlington, VT event…COME VISIT ME!). Second, this is an event that I LOVE and love to promote. The Color Run Boston in 2012 was my first race ever, and it’s what really lit a fire under my butt for running and racing. It’s fun, low-pressure, and accessible for EVERYONE regardless of age or ability. Wanna run it? Great. Wanna walk it? Awesome. Wanna skip or hula hoop the whole thing? Rock on with ya bad self!

Before becoming an ambassador, I had already convinced 5 or so ladies from my office to form a team and register–one of whom has never done a 5k before ever. I’m so excited that her first experience will be the Color Run, and even more excited that all participants receive medals this year. What better way to commemorate her first race than with some bling?

The Burlington Vermont Color Run 5k event takes place on September 26. If you’d like to join me there, use the code BUR5 for $5 off your registration!

Have you ever participated in The Color Run?

    Congrats!! Being elite sounds totally badass! 🙂 I’ve never done a Color Run… they look fun in theory (like, for other people) but I don’t like the idea of having stuff thrown at me, even though I know it’s not in a violent manner. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

      Haha, I can understand that. They do a pretty good job of keeping it away from your face/eyes/mouth, and it’s less throwing and more “squirting” with a plastic squeeze bottle.

      At both Color Run events I’ve been to, there have been tons of families, and (at least at the Burlington event) they have a separate race for kids 5 and under 🙂

    Awesome! Hope you have so much fun with this! I did Color Me Rad last year (which is the same kind of thing) with my goddaughters and it was really fun. I’m doing it again with them this year 😀 It’s in July!

    Congrats!!! I ran a Run or Dye last year and it was interesting. I think I was cleaning blue powder out of my ears for weeks after! But it was one of the few races I did with a huge group of people so that made it kind of awesome.

    Woo hoo! I think I’m running the Color Run here in Anchorage! I’ll have to see if I can convince anyone to run it with me!
