Review of Color Me Irish Run by

Posted by: on April, 4 2013

Parking was easy but $10 to park. Beers were $10, when they said food….it’s carnival food, not food trucks or Irish food. There were not that many vendors or sponsors.
Along the course where the “dye” stations are, the volunteers go a little crazy with throwing the dye at you from 2 feet away. The course is very uneven and only 2 person wide, makes it very difficult for people running when you have a group walking side by side, you have to go off the trail and risk injury. My biggest recommendation is to wear sunglasses/hat and do NOT wear any music/phone devices. Also, bring lots of wet wipes to clean off after, they have nothing for you to clean off with.
