Boston, MA (PRWEB) August 21, 2013
Color running has attracted the attention of millions of runners, families and teenagers alike with their unique, “just for fun” atmosphere. Those looking to run a 5k, The Flying Color 5K is making its first stop just outside the metropolitan area of Boston, Massachusetts to bring color run fans an even better, more vibrant experience.
A race where participants care less about who finishes first and more about having fun getting colored on a run, the Flying Color 5K is untimed and the ultimate adventure for all ages. The runners start out as a blank canvas and are doused with a colorful cornstarch powder mixture by volunteers at each kilometer, turning each person into a walking one-of-a-kind piece of artwork by the time they reach the finish line.

And those who like Facebook will be automatically entered into a sweepstake for a chance to win free tickets to the Haverhill color run. A portion of the race proceeds for the Boston color run will benefit Special Olympics Massachusetts.
