The Color Run, also known as the Happiest 5k on the Planet, is a unique paint race that celebrates healthiness, happiness and individuality. It’s less about time and finishing first and more about having FUN, something we tend to forget to do as adults. The Color Run is a is a five-kilometer (3.1 miles), un-timed race in which thousands of participants, or “Color Runners”, are doused from head to toe in different colors at each kilometer. Because the run is all about run, the focus is on promoting a healthy lifestyle with more than half the participants being first time 5K runners. With only two rules, the idea is easy to follow:
- Wear white at the starting line
- Finish plastered in color!
The fun continues after Color Runners complete the race with an unforgettable Finish Festival. This larger than life party is equipped with music, dancing and massive color throws, which create millions of vivid color combinations. This is the best post-5k party on the planet!
