Get in on the fit family fun at the Color Vibe 5K THIS Saturday (WIN!)

I’ve written about my 5K adventures in the past and now there’s something new to try. It’s always been about the big time clock for me. Did I run faster than my last race? Did I run more minutes? Was I able to run more consecutive minutes or a farther distance? I won’t lie…it’s never been for entertainment. Every 5K I’ve done has been goal-focused. On Saturday, there’s an opportunity for runners to go a different direction.

Families from across the Grand Strand and visiting the area will take part in the Color Vibe 5K at the Myrtle Beach Speedway! Yes. Someone will run this race and cross the finish line first. Everyone else is in it to have a good time and be active with their families and friends. You can dance, skip, mime, or whatever else you’d like throughout the course. Fun!

Throughout it, there are color stations for you to run through. The race organizers have t-shirts and other merchandise, including MORE COLOR, for purchase while registering or at the race. Wear something you don’t mind getting dirty!

Whether you’re a seasoned runner or someone wanting to see what it’s all about for the first time, you’ll have a blast! Your kids will too, as everyone ages 12 and under runs for free!

Now here’s the best part.

The organizers of the Color Vibe 5K have given me two registrations to give one lucky reader! To enter all you have to do is answer the following question in the comments of this blog post.

What’s your favorite way to stay active with your family?

    My 8 yr old runs with me! He has completed several 5k’s. I’m certain he would love to do a run like this! As a family, we play hard at the beach and at home by riding bikes, playing ball, and working outside.

  9. Running, hiking, beach time, we stay as active as possible! Tough to do in this summer heat when everyone wants to stay home and lounge 😉
