The Color Run Presented by Skittles is the original, largest and most unique 5km fun run in the world, celebrating healthiness, happiness, friendship and having the time of your life!!
What happens at The Color Run Presented by Skittles?
Thousands of Color Runners start the day in a white t-shirt, getting covered from head to toe in a rainbow of colours at five ‘Color Zones’ around the course. Oh and did we mention you don't even have to run? You can choose to walk, skip or dance your way around if you feel like it. It’s all about the fun and what gives you the biggest smiles!
What about the amazing ‘Color Throws’ I've seen in the photos?
That’s right, the fun continues at the epic finish festival, including an awesome mix of DJs, MCs, the truly famous ‘Color Throws’ and a host of colour crazy giveaways. Trust us, THIS is the best post 5k party on the planet!
For happy memories, big smiles and the most colourful day you’ll ever have – this is the event for you.
