Also known as the Happiest 5k on the planet, The Color Run takes place in over 100 cities in the United States and around the world. It’s a 5k like no other. You start out wearing white. Coloured dust is thrown at you over the course of the race. By the end, you’re a real piece of art. This of course leads to a perfect photo-op, so do not forget your camera! Even if you’re not a big running fan, this event will make you love it as the atmosphere is more about having a good time than winning a race.
