About This Activity

Also known as The Happiest 5k on the Planet, we love chucking paint and making people smile. With events in more than 50 countries, The Color Run is on almost every single continent on EARTH!

Less about your 10-minute-mile and more about having the time of your life, The Color Run is a five-kilometer, un-timed race in which thousands of participants are doused from head to toe in different colors at each kilometer.

With only two rules, the idea is easy to follow:

1. Wear white at the starting line
2. Finish plastered in color!

The fun continues after Color Runners complete the race with an unforgettable Finish Festival. This larger than life party is equipped with music, dancing and massive color throws, which create millions of vivid color combinations. Trust us, this is the best post-5k party on the planet!

It's a unique paint race that celebrates healthiness, happiness and individuality. We're making rainbows all over the world, come join us!

Event details and schedule

The start-line window will open at 9:00 AM with waves going every few minutes until about 10:30 AM! Make sure you plan your day with plenty of time. At The Color Run, the start line is its own pre-race party with music, dancing, warmup stretching and giveaways!
