The Color Run Michigan Eastside

Posted by: Martha Cleary

The Color Run Michigan East side is coming…are you?

It’s just fun! Ask anyone who has participated in this event. It’s just fun! Last year we had a houseful of ladies who participated in the Color Run Michigan East side race here in Ypsilanti.  The weather wasn’t even that great but…it was fun! They were such a colorful sight when they returned from the race.

Why not make it a weekend of fun for you and your friends. Looking for accommodations? The Parish House Inn has a couple of rooms that can handle 3 people.

CLICK HERE to book it on line. So come with your sister, mother or best friend. It begins in Ypsilanti’s Depot Town, just a short walk away, so you don’t worry about parking your car. You will have breakfast before you go, so you will be full of energy so you can have fun!

If you are just learning about this, let me give you some information about this event. It is known as the Happiest 5k on the Planet. Why? Because it celebrates health, happiness and individuality.

How? By encouraging participants to dress up (tu tu’s are big) in their own style. As they move around the course, walking or running, the color stations will be shower the racers with powdered color. When they reach the finish line, a rainbow of colors will be added to their clothes, face and even their hair. Pictures of the before and after are a must. It’s fun!
Nicely center in Ypsilanti. Love the food and company! Definitely coming back!dj, mi
