PALMDALE – The Color Vibe, a “vibrantly colorful” 5k fun run company, will host a Palmdale Color Vibe 5k on Saturday, Jan. 24, 2015 at the Palmdale Amphitheater, 2723 Rancho Vista Blvd.
“The Color Vibe is a unique 5k fun run series that is gaining popularity throughout the world,” said Palmdale Communications Manager John Mlynar. “Throughout the course, participants run, walk, or dance their way through color stations, where vibrant colors tie-dye white outfits and costumes.”
“You’ll get color blasted with blue, yellow, pink, purple, and green as you run or walk through the Color Vibe zones, and you’ll feel like you’re floating in a cloud of double rainbow happiness while you’re doing it!” said Mlynar.

“When it’s over, everyone is invited to stick around for a large colorful dance party hosted by a professional sound crew and DJ,” added Mlynar. “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.’”
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.
The Color Vibe encourages runners and walkers of all ages and skill levels to participate. According to Daniel Pete, 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.”
A portion of the proceeds will be donated to West Coast Classical, a community platform designed to foster the advancement of musicians from all backgrounds.
