What is The Color Run?
The Color Run is the original, largest and most unique 5k colour fun run in the world which celebrates healthiness, happiness, friendship and having the time of your life!
What happens at The Color Run?
Thousands of Color Runners start the day in a special edition white t-shirt, getting covered from head to toe in a rainbow of colours at five stations around the course. Oh and did we mention you don’t even have to run? You can choose to run, walk, skip or dance your way around the course. It’s all about the fun and what gives you the biggest smiles!
What about the amazing ‘Color Throws’ I’ve seen in the photos?
Yes, that’s right, the fun continues at the epic Finish Festival. Including an awesome mix of DJs, MCs, the truly famous ‘Color Throws’ and a host of ‘Color Crazy’ giveaways – the finish festival is truly the best way to celebrate with your friends. Trust us, THIS is the best post 5k party on the planet!
If you are looking for happy memories, big smiles and the most colourful day you’ll ever have – this is the event for you.
While our 5k event is all about having fun, we also focus on promoting a healthy lifestyle. More than half of our participants are first-time 5k runners and the event is making headway on the national focus of improving health and wellness. We hope that The Color Run 5k event will be able to act as a catalyst for our participants to live an active, healthy lifestyle.
Seeing how happy The Color Run has made people has been tremendously rewarding for us. It is an event for all fitness levels, ages and backgrounds. Our tag line, The Happiest 5k on the planet, was created after seeing the expressions of pure joy from participants.
Color Runners vary in demographics and reasons for running. With no winners or official times, The Color Run caters to everyone. Some Color Runners participate as a celebration and capstone of their healthy living accomplishments, while others participate for reasons unique to them. What are you running for?
The Color Run is the world’s first colour 5k event and was founded in March 2011 to promote healthiness and happiness by bringing the community together to participate in the Happiest 5k On The Planet.
It is now the single largest event series in the world, having exploded since our debut event. We have more than exceeded our growth expectations, now hosting events in over 200 cities and 40 countries.
