The Color Run Atlanta was a SUCCESS

@TheColorRun was the most #Happiest Race we ever attended. The atmosphere of the 1,000s of people there was nothing short of smiles, laughter, dancing and so many just cheering each other on to finish the race. Running or Walking through the Colors being tossed onto us was fun and made the race even more worth the time and energy it takes to run a 5K.

HAPPY tattoos and the song HAPPY by @Pharrell was causing much dancing and joy around the Atlanta Speed Way. When crossing the finished line you could hear individuals saying, "let's run this next year," or "let's go around again and just have fun." The literal joy in the atmosphere was contagious, energy and a community built around the happiest 5K on the planet.

This is a MUST RUN Every year.
