2015 Lake Havasu City Color Your Sole 5K
The 2015 Lake Havasu City Color Your Sole 5K marks the third year in a row that the Havasu Chamber of Commerce has hosted this colorful 5K. Sure, you’ll start out sparkling clean. But you won’t stay that way. That’s because there are several color stations set up along the route. Each one of these stations is manned by volunteers who are ready to douse you with a different color. Don’t worry about getting this color off afterwards. It is just made up of biodegradable cornstarch. It comes off pretty easily in the shower and in the washing machine. You may have to scrub a little more to get some of the color off. And you’ll be surprised where that color settles in on your body…trust me!
I highly suggest that you wear sunglasses to help protect your eyes. Also, a nice big bandana or neckerchief around your neck will be helpful. Just make sure you pull it up over your mouth and nose before you hit a color station. Otherwise, you may end up with cornstarch down your throat.
Packet pick-up for the 2015 Lake Havasu City Color Your Sole 5K is at 6am on Saturday morning. The run begins promptly at 8am. Runners and walkers will be let go in waves of around 50 every four to six minutes thereafter. The final wave is scheduled to depart at 9am.
What is your reward for participating in the 2015 Lake Havasu City Color Your Sole 5K? A party at the finish line. Quench your thirst with some complimentary bottled water. Then make your way over to the bumping music and special activities. If you didn’t get enough color during the race, you can purchase extra packets to throw your own color bombs at your friends. It’s tons of fun.
