Cedar Point To Host THE COLOR RUN 5K!
5k runs have exploded into the scene over the past few years with all sorts of runs. Weather it’s a zombie run, mud run, electro dash or color run, you probably heard of one of these phenomenons. Cedar Point is adding an extra splash of color to the fall with The Color Run! The “Happiest 5K on the Planet” will be hitting the midways on Saturday, September 20 as a part of its 2014 Kaleidoscope Tour.
The 5K run, which begins at 8 a.m., will wind it’s way around Cedar Point’s 17 coasters and through four vibrant color stations. Runners can sign up individually or in a team, with tiered pricing based on sign-up date. Every registered Color Runner will receive an official “Color Run Race Kit,” which includes a custom t-shirt, tri-color headband, shoulder sling bag and more! Cedar Point is also offering special deals on admission and accommodations for all Color Run participants. Participants will be able to purchase one-day entry to Cedar Point for only $35 during registration or on the day of the run at any Cedar Point ticket booth. Runners can also receive discounts on accommodations at Cedar Point’s Breakers Express.
The Color Run is an extremely popular 5K, untimed race that began in March 2011 and now hosts more than 170 events in over 30 countries. The race is aimed at promoting healthiness and happiness in the community, a feeling that is enhanced by the colorful paint powder thrown on runners at designated color stations along the route.
