The Color Run™ 5k is coming to Sunderland! The only question is “Are you ready for the craziest, colorful, 5k of your life?” You bet you are. Race it solo or with your Color friends. Check out the race details below & we’ll see you all squeaky clean at the start line.

Date: Sunday 20th July, 2014

Time: 11am

Registrations Opens: Friday 7th February, 2014


How does it work?

The Color Run™ event is a one of a kind experience that is less about speed and more about enjoying a color crazy day with your friends and family. For our events, it is about participants of all different speeds, ages, shapes, and sizes toeing the start line. Whether you are a casual Sunday morning walker or an Olympic athlete, the 3 miles of The Color Run™ course will be the most enjoyable 3 miles you’ve travelled in a VERY long time. (If you have more questions about how it all works, check out our “ABOUT” page.)

Race Rules

Rule #1 All participants are welcome… fast, slow, runner, walker, old, and young.
Rule #2 White shirt dress code at the official start line and ready to roll!
Rule #3 Completely colored Willy Wonka goodness at the finish.
