You definitely should! That's why I signed up in the first place. I knew that I wanted to get into running and really the only way I was going to force myself to do C25K was by signing up for a 5k and training for it. I saw some pictures from a previous Color Run and it just looked like so much fun so I thought it would be a great first running 5k experience.

For those that have asked, It's a 5k where at each km marker they throw color on you, I'm fairly certain it's colored corn starch, but it's kind of like holi. So at the end of the race they have this big colorful celebration and everyone just gets covered head to toe in color.

Welcome and good luck!! Those Color Runs sound like lots of fun. I had planned to do the one in San Francisco but it already sold out :-(

Hello! I'm fairly new to C25K. This is my first time doing the program and I'm currently between days two and three of week two. I'm enjoying it so far and my body has surprised me with what I've been capable of doing. I'm running in The Color Run on July 15th here so I'm running every other day to make sure I'm prepared in time. Looking forward to seeing where this takes me.
