So the morning of the Color Run I woke up and had absolutely nothing to do and had heard that there was the "Color Run" in the cities. It was supposed to be an awesome day about 90 and sunny. I packed up all my stuff and went on out to shoot.

Of the about 1100 photos I took that day, I narrowed it down to about 15 that I liked and then about 5 that I really liked. So here they are, all shot with the 7D and either a 50mm or 70-200mm

Great! These inspire me to go to the Color Me Rad event we have here this year. I missed last years because I didn't think it'd be as cool as a mud run, ha ha.

I would highly recommend it. There is so much energy throughout the whole race. Most of the expressions throughout are priceless. There aren't any in this set, but when the race is done everyone gets together and throws paint around. Great stuff.

Just an FYI, everything gets covered by a powdery paint, like everything just be aware of that one.

Thanks!

As for the powdery paint, unfortunately I had no clue it was going to get so messy, so I tried to stay out of the really messy parts of the race. I saw some people that had cases or bags around their cameras. I mean the 7D is "sealed" so the paint really has no way to get into the camera. But having paint in the little crevasses bugged the living daylights out of me. I used a light air compressor to get my camera cleaned afterward.

Now, if you do it, be really really careful about changing lenses. I saw a lot of people that were doing that as paint was flying around and that didn't generally end too well. Paint all in the inside of the camera is never good. However, best of luck if you go to one. Seriously was one of my favorite shoots I have done.
