The Color in Motion 5k is splashing its way through East Bay to throw a crazy colorful 5k race the morning of August 9th. Registration is open!

Runners in this Color Movement will run, jog, swagger, dance, and sashay their way through Baton Rouge. Starting in white (be it a tee shirt and shorts, football jerseys, or a wedding dress), participants gradually transform into a moving Technicolor blur as they get color blasted at stations all throughout the course. The race is not timed or limited to just athlete--everyone of every age and level of fitness is invited to be active, social, and have a great time painting the town.
At the end of the race, participants can attend the Color Bash post-race party with music, dancing, and one last color blast.

Color in Motion 5k is not an event limited to the East Bay area, it's happening all over the country, and at every location it teams up with a local charity to raise both funds and awareness.
For the race in East Bay, Color in Motion 5k is working with the Crohn's and Colitis Foundation of America.
