Iowa City hosts first ever Color Your Campus Run

Iowa City held its first 5k Color Your Campus run at the University of Iowa on April 12, 2014.

Nearly 1,200 runners participated (including myself) in the race and since the run was such a huge success the race will be back next year but will be bigger and better!

Check out this slideshow of some great photos I took at the Color your Campus race. It was such a great experience and I can’t wait for the next one to come next year. Also thank you to Color Your Campus, Grant Kamins for letting me use some of the photos taken at the race for this slideshow.
