The Color Run is a five-kilometer, un-timed race in which thousands of participants are doused from head to toe in different colors at each kilometer. The Color Run is not about your ten minute mile, but more about having the time of your life. The Color Run, debuted their new Shine Tour in 2015 bringing a fresh spin and unique experience to Color Runners around the world. The Shine Tour enhances the experience that Color Runners already love with an all-new Sparkle Zone™ on the running course with unique opportunities for colorful photographs throughout the course.

“With the Shine Tour, we wanted to create an immersive and transformative experience beyond anything our runners have experienced with us so far,” said Travis Snyder, founder of The Color Run. “The Shine Tour is the next generation of The Color Run and participants will be able to feel and visibly see themselves transform throughout each kilometer of the event.”

The fun continues after Color Runners complete the race with an unforgettable finish line festival. At the Finish Festival, participants can enjoy music, dancing and massive color throws with accents of new confetti cannons, shimmery clouds of color, sparkle, and more. This is the best post-5k party on the planet that you won’t want to miss!
