Color Me Bad

There’s nothing like getting whomped with colored powder at every kilometer marker when you’re running a 5K — which is probably why events like the Color Run have become so popular during the past few years. But today’s event at Copper Mountain is going to be unlike other, similar events because of the snow.

“This will be the Color Run’s first on-snow winter stop,” notes Copper’s Austyn Williams. “They usually take place in more urban areas, so it’ll be exciting to see the color on the snow — and if you’re familiar with the Colorado springtimes, we’re usually having blue-sky days and it’s really warm outside. So it’ll be fun for people to get hit with color and finish the day with live music.”

The Color Run was originally supposed to wrap up Copper’s Sunsation festival and winter season, but the resort is staying open for at least another week, so it’s not your last chance to hit the slopes for the season — but it’s getting close.

Help Copper change its colors for spring; tickets are $45, and race-day packet pickup starts at 10 a.m. Visit for details.
