The Color Run isn’t really about getting your personal best time… it’s about having the time of your life! The Color Run is a 5-kilometer, un-timed race where thousands of participants, or “Color Runners,” are just covered from head to toe in different colors at each kilometer! There are really only 2 very simple rules:

1. Wear WHITE at the starting line
2. Finish plastered in COLOR!

Ok… maybe one more rule…


It sounds like tons of fun, right? And it doesn’t even stop there… after Color Runners finish the race there’s an unforgettable Finish Festival! There’s music, dancing and MORE color throws! I think it might be the best post-5K party on the planet!

    This looks fun. We had a race like this last year in my area and there were some problems with local cars getting coating in colors, which the area residents didn’t appreciate.
