The Color Run, the world’s first COLOR 5k™ event, was founded in March 2011 as an event to promote healthiness and happiness by bringing the community together to participate in the “Happiest 5k on the Planet”.
They are the original paint race and have created a completely new genre of COLOR DASH™ running events that continues to grow exponentially. Now the single largest event series in the world, The Color Run has exploded since their debut event. They have more than exceeded their growth expectations, now hosting events in over 200 cities and 40 countries every year.
Here are the top 10 reasons to run The Color Run:

From babies getting pushed in strollers to some of our favorite grandparents, and even celebrities, everyone loves making rainbows and getting colorful at the Happiest 5k!
