About Us

How the event works

We’re less about your personal best and more about having the time of your life!
The Color Run is a five-kilometer, un-timed fun run, where thousands of participants, or as we like to call them “Color Runners”, are doused from head to toe with our coloured powder at each kilometer. With only two rules, the idea is easy to follow:
1 . Wear white at the starting line
2 . Finish plastered in colour!
The fun doesn’t stop at the Finish Line! Our EPIC Finish Festival will give the chance for all our fabulous Color Runners to burn a few extra calories by showing off their finest dance moves! Think music, dancing and of course our infamous Color Throws! Trust us when we say, this is the best post-5k party on the planet!


While our 5k event is all about having fun, we also want to encourage our participants to lead a healthier lifestyle. With more than half of our participants being first-time 5k runners, our event is making headway on the national focus of improving health and wellness. We hope that The Color Run will be the perfect opportunity for participants to kick start their active lifestyle!


Seeing just how many smiles we’ve created has been tremendously rewarding! Age, fitness level, shape or size is no excuse at The Color Run! We’re just here to spread the happiness! After all, we’re not called the ‘Happiest 5k on the Planet’ for nothing!

All of our Color Runners are uniquely different! Whether it be their demographic or their reason for attending the event, we say the more the merrier! Birthdays, hens’ parties, milestones and more are just a few of the reasons our Color Runners come party with us. With no official times, everyone’s a winner at The Color Run and therefore we welcome first time runners and seasoned athletes.

The Color Run is the perfect time to celebrate YOU! And what’s a better reason to celebrate than that?!

Giving Back
