Listen up Color Runners! We want to ensure that you have the best possible day at The Happiest 5k on the Planet, whether it’s your first time or your fifth time! We’ve put together some of our top tips for you to bear in mind when the big day arrives!




Our first top tip is to stick together around the course with your friends, family or colleagues especially if you’re running in a team! This way we can guarantee you’ll have the most laughs ☺ We suggest that you arrive in good time before the start so that you can enjoy the warm up altogether and can get limbered up ready to run, walk or dance your way round the colourful course! You’ll also have time to put on some awesome face paint and tattoos before walking altogether to the start chute.


Secondly, embrace all the colour that will be coming your way at the Color Zones! Don’t be shy, get colourful and make the most of it – after all, it is The COLOR Run, we don’t want anyone finishing all white now do we?! Waiting for your pals at Color Zones is a great idea too, it’s way more fun to go through these with your mates and you can get some fab photos altogether!


Remember your gear – that includes the awesome white tees, headband and sunglasses! If you purchased some funky swag on our website before the event, make sure you wear those too to ensure you really look the part! Don’t forget we will be selling more super swag on the day of the event! This includes tutu’s, more face paint, tattoos, knee high socks and wristbands to name a few!


Another of our tips is to make sure you stick around once you’ve finished the course – the fun doesn’t stop there Color Runners! Join the party at our finish festival stage, where a DJ will be playing some top tunes and there’ll be regular colour throws to ensure you get covered in even MORE colour! Be sure to keep hold of your coloured powder pack that you receive in your race pack ☺


Finally, and most importantly, SMILE! Enjoy the day, whichever way you decide to make your way round the course!

See you squeaky clean on the start line ☺
