Now the single largest event series in the United States, The Color Run has exploded since our debut event.

With only two rules, the idea is easy to follow: Wear white at the starting line and 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! Registration can be done online at, the day before the race at our packet pickup, or the day of the race. It is a lot cheaper if people sign up as a team.
