The inaugural Runstreet Daydream 5K Art Run & Festival presented by Clif Bar was a swimming success full of paint, glitter, smiles, tacos and miles. From sparkling unicorns to dogs in fairy costumes to onesie-clad runners, the costumed run waves were a hit! We loved bringing our vision of a day of fantasy, play, color, art, music and running to life, and were lucky to work with so many amazing NYC street artists in the process. This was the first-ever Runstreet Art Run & Festival, and it is just the beginning.

The Art Battle between our talented featured artists - Riiisa Boogie and the Art Alchemist - was a central attraction outside on a sunny, warm day in Brooklyn. NYC artists Ivanorama and Renee XORS rounded out the amazing visuals for the day, with incredible Daydream art lining the venue. Our shirts -- colorful, paint-splattered wolves -- designed by Brooklyn artist Bk Foxx, were a huge hit. It was everything to bring our wolf logo to life in a colorful, daydream-esque form.

Throughout the day, the festival thrived on good vibes, thanks to participants, who brought all the vibrant energy, creative costumes and adventurous spirits to our first Daydream Festival. DJ Jon Blak kept the party going while our makeup and body paint artists Kozmic Colors and Paige Texas colored attendees happy with beautiful face and body paint, makeup and designs. Special shoutout to our Deloitte group of runners, who kept the glitter flowing and spirits high in our first run wave. 

Thank you to our presenting sponsor Clif Bar and shirt sponsor Custom Performance for helping bring this vision to life. Also thank you to Boxed Water and Noosa Yoghurt for keeping everyone nourished, as well as our on-site taco truck. Thanks to ConBody, Pilates Bklyn, honeygrow, Riiisa Boogie and Clif Bar for donating to our raffle for some dope prizes. Also a big shoutout to our Runstreet crew - @tn4k_ Mia, @vegloverun #UberMariel @kurtzm @EllieWindham and @ashleycrashley23 for helping make everything run smoothly, from the Art Runs to check-in and shirts. And a huge thanks to the co-event producer and Creative Director Marques Jackson for making magic happen.
