|The Color Run Hawaii|
We actually stayed up really late the night before making our crayon inspired "District L" shirts. We go there early, a little after 8:00 so we got to run in the first wave. There were 8,000 participants and they were releasing the waves every 5-10 minutes. I was happy to be in the first wave because at the starting line they were handing out free color run merchandise and extra color packets. Unfortunately we didn't get anything because we weren't standing close enough to the front.
Overall the run itself was pretty easy. The whole course ran through a residential area so it was paved the whole way. There were 4 places on the course where the color zones were where volunteers throw color on you. The actual color is in powder form so it does get in your eyes and mouth. After the race was over, they had a color throw for all the finishers. This was definitely a great finish to the race and it looked pretty cool watching it from afar (there are a bunch of pictures on the color run website).
The color actually washes out pretty easily. You can pretty much dust it off since it's powder. Before I showered, I took a lot of it off with makeup remover and it came right off.
Overall, it was a really fun experience and I highly recommend doing it! I would definitely do it again next year!
