On the morning of Sunday, October 5th, something called the Color Run passed through the District. Its arrival sort of slipped by us, but we caught up with the clean-up crew after the multi-colored runners were already gone. The Color Run describes itself this way:
The Color Run, also known as the Happiest 5k on the Planet, is a unique paint race that celebrates healthiness, happiness and individuality.
Now the single largest event series in the United States, The Color Run has exploded since our debut event. We have more than tripled our growth, hosting more than 170 events in 30+ countries in 2013.
There you have it.
For something so happy, it left the Jewelry District (briefly) kind of blue.
