Rainbow Running: The Color Vibe 5k Comes to New Orleans

New Orleans, LA - The Color Vibe, a 5k fun run company, is hosting the New Orleans Color Vibe 5k on September 4, 2016 at 8:00 AM, featuring vibrant colors, epic beats, and tons of fun. The event will be held at the NOLA Motorsports Park.

The Color Vibe 5k changes working out from a chore into a party. Throughout the course, participants can run, walk, or dance their way past four color stations where they are blasted with vibrant, colored powders. Clean shirts and crazy costumes quickly turn into masterpieces of blue, pink, purple, yellow, and green. At the end of the run, everyone is invited to stick around for a dance party with a professional DJ and sound crew who orchestrate mass color throws, color wars, swag giveaways, and other crowd activities.

The Color Vibe 5k is the perfect event for runners and walkers of all ages and skill levels. It is a fun change of pace for experienced runners and an enjoyable first step for those just starting their exercise routines. According to Nate Sorensen, Color Vibe Race Director, "The Color Vibe 5k is full of inspirational stories of runners and nonrunners alike coming together to share a life experience, accomplish fitness goals, and become rainbow junkies. It doesn't matter how fast you gojust
how colorful you get."

Each 5k benefits a local charity so participants can support their community while having a blast. A portion of the proceeds for New Orlean's event will be donated to the local charity, the Lower Ninth Ward Living Museum. The Living Museum is dedicated to preserving the collective memory of the Lower Ninth Ward and sharing the neighborhood's history through the voices of people who have lived it, using clips from oral histories along with archival exhibits. The museum doubles as community space, and offers after school kids programming as well as cultural events. "We are excited to be able to work with such a great organization and to spread awareness for an amazing cause," Sorensen says.

NOLA Motorsports Park's CEO/Experience Coordinator, Frank Christian, expresses his and the park's excitement about the upcoming Color Vibe event, "We are pleased to partner with Color Vibe to bring this event to New Orleans. The city prides itself on family friendly fun and with Color Vibe, everyone can be included. NOLA Motorsports Park looks forward to adding a splash of color to our race track. Participants will be able to cross our finish line as fast as they can run!"

What makes The Color Vibe 5k stand out among other fun runs is its vibrant custommade color. The company uses a unique cornstarch formula exclusive to Color Vibe to deliver a brighter, safer experience than any other color event. Made in the USA, the foodgrade quality cornstarch is 100% nontoxic, nonflammable, and biodegradable. It washes out easily from skin, hair, and clothes.

The Color Vibe offers special discounts to businesses looking to spice up their health and wellness plans. They also welcome local companies to participate as vendors and sponsors.
