What is the Color Run?
The Color Run 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. Our events, are all about people of all different speeds, ages, shapes, and sizes toeing the start line. Whether you are a casual morning mall walker or an Olympic athlete, the 3 miles of the Color Run course will be the most enjoyable real estate you’ve traveled in a VERY long time. You will love this Color Dash of fun!
How does it work?
The Color Run pretty much has 2 SIMPLE rules. 1. White shirts (any mostly white T will work great) mandatory at the start line and 2. Color plastered EVERYTHING at the finish! Runner/walkers begin the 5k at the start line like a brand new pristine coloring book, they end looking like they fell into a Willy Wonka… tie dyed… vat of colored goodness.
What is the Color?
Each kilometer of the event is associated with a designated color. 1k is yellow, 2k is blue, 3k is green, 4k is pink, and the 5k finish is a “Color Extravaganza.” As the runners/walkers hit the Kilometer COLOR RUN Zones, they will be blitzed by our volunteers, sponsors, and staff with COLOR. The color is a special “elf made” recipe of magical color dust. All products are 100% natural and safe. You can eat the stuff if you’d like (we have tried it and don’t suggest it, it is surprisingly high in calories and leaves a chalky aftertaste). See the diagram below for the COLOR RUN ZONE specifics:

What about the finish line?
I think we can safely say our finish line is the best post-5k party on the PLANET. After the finish, participants are encouraged to stick around, get Down, and see exactly how much COLOR their individual person can contain. We will have food, color, and festivities that will make your color powdered head spin.
What if I have more questions?
Good grief:) You are making this webpage tired. Time for you to check out the “FAQS” page.
Why haven’t I registered yet?
Well, this question is something only you can answer through meaningful soul searching. Maybe you don’t like fun? Maybe you have an irrational fear of color? Either way, in our expert opinion we think you are plain LOCO if you don’t give the Color Run a shot! Check out “OUR LOCATIONS” for a Color Run near you.
