Why You Should Attend

The Color Run is a five-kilometer un-timed run where every participant is doused in different colored cornstarch as they make their way to the finish line.

Those who participate in this event can either run solo or they can have a minimum team of four that can join them in being covered in the many different powdered hues.

This event, allow all ages to join in on the fun because the main point of this run is to promote health and happiness.

The run also donates to a charity that the community has nominated for their city because Color Run wants to spread the word on how you can help any charity organization out.

The only rules of this race is to start off in all white and end the race covered in as many different colors as possible.

The event also has cleaning stations that way everyone can drive home with having to worry about too much color coming with them on the ride back home.



Three Event Highlight

1) At the beginning of the race you start off in all white and as you go through the “color zones” of the course, all volunteers will throw whatever color they have at you as you pass them by.


2) At the finish line, you can tear open the color packet that was given to you in your goody bag or one that you bought before the run started.


3) While the explosion of color is going on, so is the after party dance. This is where all participants get to continue their colorful celebration by dancing and listening to music.
