The Charlotte Color Run Blogger Link Up & Meet Up

So there is a Color Run in Charlotte, NC coming up on November 17, 2012 and a few of us have decided to use the Color Run as an opportunity to meet some Carolina Bloggers.  =)  

   

The color run will take place at the Charlotte Motor Speedway on November 17th.  It starts at 9 am!  It's a 5K, which is 3.1 miles of running or walking.  It's not timed, so there's no pressure for you to be extremely physically fit or anything.  The Color Run is all for fun, and for us it's about fun & mingling with other bloggers.  :)  At the Color Run, you'll get covered head-to-toe in safe, colored powder (similar consistency to powdered sugar) and look like the people in the above pictures.  My husband will be coming with me because he wants to throw powder at people, haha!  =)  

Anyway, the price per runner is between $30 and $40, but we'll know more once registration opens up next week.  They are pairing up with the Habitat for Humanity Charity, which will benefit from the money we pay to participate.  There a dress code for the race - they ask that you wear a white shirt.  It helps all the colors show up better.  =)    We'll get a discount for registering as a team and I think they offer a discount for early registration.  Again, we'll know more once registration opens.  You can find out more information about the Color Run on their website, or by visiting their Twitter and Facebook pages.  If you've already joined our team or if you're planning on it, it's recommended that you sign up for e-mail updates.  This will ensure that you're alerted as soon as registration opens because the race tends to fill up quickly.    

Where does the Blogger Meet Up come in?  Since the race starts on that Saturday morning, some people who are coming from out of town will want to spend Friday night in Charlotte.  The plan is for everyone to go back to their homes or hotel rooms after the race, shower & get cleaned up, and then meet somewhere downtown for cocktails, maybe appetizers?  We'll see what happens - if you have any ideas, message me! If you are interested in joining our team for the Color Run, please link up below so that we know who you are and how to get our team info to you.

what is the powder? Chalk?

I copied this from the website... "The color is a special “elf made” recipe of magical color dust. All products are 100% natural and safe. You can eat the stuff if you’d like (we have tried it and don’t suggest it, it is surprisingly high in calories and leaves a chalky aftertaste)." So, I don't think it's chalk. It's just similar in texture to chalk. We'll have to ask the elves, I suppose. :)
