Brownsville, TX — The Color Vibe, a “vibrantly colorful” 5k fun run company, is hosting the Brownsville Color Vibe 5k for people of all ages on Saturday, May 24, 2014 held at the Brownsville Sports Park.

The Color Vibe is a unique 5k fun run series that is gaining popularity throughout the United States. Throughout the course, participants run, walk, or dance their way through color stations, where vibrant colors tie-dye white outfits and costumes. When it’s over, everyone is invited to stick around for a large colorful dance party hosted by a professional sound crew and DJ. As their website states, “You are the canvas, and when you’re finished with this 5k run you’ll be an exciting and vivid masterpiece.”

The Color Vibe encourages runners and walkers of all ages and skill levels to participate. According to Nate Sorensen, Color Vibe Race Director, “The Color Vibe 5k is full of inspirational stories of runners and non-runners alike coming together to share a life experience, accomplish fitness goals, and become rainbow junkies. We do not time our 5k fun runs so every participant can take their time getting colored.” Children 7 and under can participate for free.

A portion of the proceeds will be donated to a local charity. Sorensen states, “We are excited to be able to work with such great local charities. They are able to give back, reach out to the community and help many local residents.”

To make this event unique, the Color Vibe uses a cornstarch based colored powder to tie-dye participants. The colored powder is made in the USA and made from food grade quality cornstarch using an advanced manufacturing process that’s been custom developed for the Color Vibe Race Series. It’s non-toxic, 100% safe, and biodegradable. It also washes out easily from skin and hair.
