Here at Color In Motion 5K, we believe in giving back. We think that communities that come together to have a good time can also inspire change! This is why we work to partner with local charities in every city we go to! We don’t want the money you donate to go to some faceless organization where you never get to see or experience the results. The charities we choose to partner with directly benefit YOU and your community!
Not only do a portion of the proceeds from every ticket go towards the chosen charity in your city, but you can also make direct donations through our website! If money is a little tight, you can also learn more about each charity on our “locations” page and donate your time! A lot of the charities we partner with would love to have you as a volunteer! Just a little of your time can make a huge difference in the lives of others.
We have seen some great results from partnering with non-profit organizations all across the country! Your contributions have helped build new facilities, provide meals, put kids and students through programs, and provided care for those who need it most! We owe a lot to our awesome participants, and couldn’t do as much good without you!
We have partnered with many wonderful organizations throughout the years. Check out a few of them below:
Are we coming to a city near you, but you don’t see a charity on our website? We’re always looking for new amazing organizations to work with! Comment below with a non-profit organization you’d like to see us work with in your city! You can also have your favorite charity email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Here at Color In Motion 5K, our mission is movement! We believe in getting out and getting active however you can. We have a big mix of participants that join us for our events, and we get everyone from first-timers to color veterans. For our participants that are new to the world of 5K’s, we’ve outlined a little of what you can expect and how to prepare for your first race below!
What you can expect:
3.1 miles of walking/jogging/dancing/running. However you choose get across the finish line is fine by us!
LOTS of color! And we mean lots…
Loud music at every color station, a rowdy DJ, and a giant after party!
Most importantly: so much fun that it will be coming out of your ears!
How to prep:
TRAIN: While it is entirely possible to participate in CIM5K with no training whatsoever, we recommend that you start walking/jogging/running at least one month before the event. That way, you can get your body used to moving more and you can build up to a faster time! (If you’re in to that sort of thing.) Plus, by signing up for CIM5K, you get 30 days free with Mbition-The Smart Adaptive Training Plan! Sign up for our Newsletter to receive additional custom training plans provided by Mbition!
SLEEP: Make sure you get a good night’s sleep before the event! We know you’re probably too excited thinking about all of the colorful fun you’ll have the following morning. (If we’re being honest, we’re right in that boat with you!) We promise you’ll want to get a good rest before the run. Even though you’ll be having the time of your life, your body will be doing a lot of work and will need all the help it can get. Plus, you might be waking up a bit earlier than normal, and sleep never hurt anybody!
BRING: Lots and lots of towels. You will be covered head-to-toe in color, so bringing along some supplies to clean up after the race is always a good idea! Towels are great to dust you off and cover the seats in your car. Plastic bags are the perfect container for colorful shoes that might need a little more dusting off at home, and wet wipes are great for cleaning off hands, faces, and mobile screens!
That’s it for today’s tips on preparing for your first 5k! Did we miss anything that you’d like to know? Stay tuned for more tips and training ideas!
In 2017, Color In Motion 5K is back and better than ever! We have revamped all of our races, and you won’t want to miss out! We know that runs that utilize color are some of the best loved runs around, so this year we’ve introduced the theme: Viva La Color!™ Sounds awesome, right?! But what does that mean for you?
Viva La Color! means The Color Movement™ lives on! We want to celebrate life, color, fun, and health at our events, and we’ve added more features to do just that! New this year:
Music added to every color station to keep the party bumping!
Wacky mirrors for you take awesome selfies with your besties!
More vivid colors to make your photos pop!
CIM5K Race Medals for everyone who completes the race!
VIP Packages for those of you out there who want to add a little more to your race experience!
Sound like your type of party? We thought so. Who doesn’t love a good time partying with friends, getting in shape, and dancing the day away all while supporting a local charity? That’s right, we also partner with local charities in every city we go to, because we believe in giving back! But that’s not all we believe in!
Our Mission Is Movement.
We believe that people coming together in their communities to have fun and support a common goal can empower them to pursue positive social change within those communities. Our races are not about winning. They’re about joining. They’re about getting out and getting active. When you join Color In Motion 5K, you are joining a movement that ignites a passion for health and for community.
Join The Color Movement™ and get involved with Viva La Color! in a city near you today!
