Loved it. Good job capturing the energy and fun (and color!) of the event.

Does anyone know what it is that they throw on people? All that comes to mind is the crap that would build up in peoples lungs etc running through that muck.

As someone suffering from a really bad 2 month old cough right now, I was thinking the same thing. I wonder how many asthma attacks get induced in this event.

Thanks for your comments !

From the FAQ Color Run page :

What is the colour made from? Does it stain?

The coloured powder we use is made from corn-starch and natural food dyes. It will wash out of your clothes, however we suggest you leave your designer gear at home! Only wear what you’re willing to get colourful ;)

But I don't think it would be a great idea to participate if you have asthma.

Yes, my thoughts too. I had that cough for almost 3 weeks myself. The camera work and editing was great OP....I don't personally get the widespread interest in these events. (tough mudder etc). Mixing powdered dyes with breathing and sweating seems like a bad recipe. I'm sure it's inspired by the Indian holiday, but no thanks.

As wjiang already mentioned these things are absolute disasters for cameras and lenses. Stay away from these events with your gear!

As to the event itself it is run by a for-profit entity. That's probably the reason they are so popular, a lot of marketing going on...

Yes..having recently seen an episode of shark tank, I saw a company running a mud obstacle race, a bull run and tomato war (copying the original festivals)...and there's some serious money to be made on these at $75-150/head or more. Seems faddy/ trendy though.
