Thousands of runners laced up their shoes and put on their brightest whites to participate in Tulsa's first ever "Color Run," Saturday Morning.
Organizers call the Color Run a "one of a kind experience that is less about speed and more about enjoying a color crazy day with your friends and family."
The course is open to just about everyone from the professional runner to the average mall walker. The only requirement for participants, wear a white shirt.
At various points along the course participants are doused with multi colored powder.
The three mile course wound its way from 21st & Boulder, down Riverside to 33rd Street where it doubled back and ended up in Veterans Park.
Race organizer, Sean DeGrey says about 10,000 people registered for the event. He says originally Tulsa 'wasn't really on their radar.' DeGrey says demand from social media to bring the event to Tulsa really helped drive their decision.
Because of concerns over hot weather, DeGrey said they had to push the start time of the race back by thirty minutes. He also said they tripled their water supply for the runners.
Anthony Coblentz, a runner from Choteau, told KTUL.com "My wife honestly drug me into it. But I had a lot more fun than I realized I would."
Entry fees for the run ranged between $35 and $50 dollars.
Proceeds from the Color Run are being donated to River Parks.
