Back in the 1980s, I had the good fortune to visit and race in Colorado Springs, Colorado. It is one of the most beautiful, health-conscious cities in the country.

Health consciousness in the Colorado Springs area, and, indeed, throughout many areas of the U.S. these days, is universal, appealing to folks of all ages and ability levels.

So, if you're looking for a 5K event that is simply a fun way to achieve a great workout, there's a great race in the pure thin air of Colorado just for you.

Get ready for a Color Blast™ at the Colorado Springs Color in Motion 5K on Saturday, July 26. This is the largest and most colorful event of this year's Rocky Mountain State Games.

The event will be held on Saturday, July 26, beginning at 9:00 a.m., at Antlers Park, 31 W. Pikes Peak, Avenue, in Colorado Springs.

Runsaver.com offers a perfect description of this unique athletic event.

"The Color in Motion 5K is designed to be wild, wacky, motivating and truly unforgettable. The race gives you an opportunity to be social, to get in shape, and to let loose by doing something totally out of the ordinary. By the end you'll be covered in colors, and not only will your outfit be brighter, but your health and outlook on life will be too. No age limit! Come young, come old!"

Now, I'm one of those  running fossils who hails from the era of inexpensive race entry fees, so here's what I love about this event. If you act quickly, it's cheap! If you register by midnight mountain time on June 26, you can enter for only $29!
