Once the 5k is over, the fun continues at the Finish Festival, a larger-than-life party equipped with music, dancing, photo ops, activity booths, vendors, and more massive color throws., which create millions of vivid color combinations. Trust us, this is the best post-5K party on the planet!
To date, The Color Run has donated more than $5 million to charity. As a for-profit event management company, we love getting the opportunity to partner with a local charity partner in every community we visit and help shine a light on their amazing work. We have worked with more than 80 local and national charities since 2012.
Volunteering is now closed. Thank you all for your applications!
Help us make the magic happen (and throw colored powder at people). Our volunteers are part of what makes us the Happiest 5k on the Planet!
We always offer an exclusive The Color Run™ t-shirt to our volunteers, and this year’s cute tie-dye print will definitely make your friends jealous.
As a volunteer, you’re helping us give back. Each event supports the amazing work of global nonprofits and local nonprofits in your community.
Give yourself some hands-on experience in managing events! Trust us, it looks great on a resume.
Bring your squad along for the ride. When you volunteer with friends and family, the day is even more memorable!
Nope. There are plenty of great 5ks out there that test speed and performance. However, The Color Run is a non-competitive and untimed 5k filled with color that you can experience with friends and family. You’re free to run, jog, walk, or cartwheel along the course!
For our Love Tour events, each registered runner will receive the 2020 Limited Edition Love Tour Participant Kit complete with a super soft new tee, headband, welcome card and a shiny tattoo along with some super cool sponsor goodies and your medal and color packet at the event!
Of course! You can find it here
The Color Run is neither a charity nor a non-profit organization. The Color Run, LLC is a for-profit event company.
The Color Run was inspired by several awesome events, including Disney’s World of Color, Paint Parties, Mud Runs, and festivals throughout the world such as Holi. We wanted to create a less stressful, untimed running environment that was more about health and happiness than competition. We hope that The Color Run can act as a catalyst to inspire continual healthy living.
On one condition, if you are prepared to be one of the hippest moms/dads on the planet! If they can cover (running, jogging, walking, or strolling) the 5k of The Color Run course, they can absolutely participate in The Color Run!
There are two options for all Little Color Runners 4 and younger on the registration form. They can register for a super low fee and get the full participant kit, or chose to register for free without a participant kit.
For the safety of our runners and animal friends, we do not allow animals at any of our races.
We’ll let you know soon!
You bet! As long as you send them with a printed or electronic copy of your confirmation email with the QR code on it!
We conduct thorough testing to ensure the safety of our materials and their application. The health of our participants and employees is always our top priority. As a professional events company with highly vetted policies and processes, we conduct thorough testing to ensure the safety of our materials and their application.
At the Finish Festival, the crowd will be involved in a color throw every 15 minutes to welcome new runners coming in. We provide one bag of color for each runner as you cross the finish line. More packets can be purchased on race day at The Color Run store.
The color mostly washes out after the event. As with anything dirty, the sooner you wash it the better. It’s best to wear items that you wouldn’t mind getting colorful.
Most people bring some towels for the insides of their cars, or a change of clothes just in case.
Our color powder is all certified non-toxic and free of any heavy metals. Our bright colors are a combination of cornstarch, baking soda, and FD&C (food-safe) dyes. Some Color Runners opt to wear glasses or goggles for their eyes and use a bandana or dust mask for their mouths.
Unfortunately this is for participants only.
To be totally safe, we always recommend covering cameras/phones with a protective dust wrap. The Color Run is not liable for any damage that might be done to your phone or camera!
The Color Run is an untimed event. For anyone who wants a finish time, we suggest self-timing.
If an event is held as advertised, we cannot issue refunds. Make sure you are good to go before signing up. If for some reason you can’t make it to race day, at least come to the Check-In Party, pick up your gear, and say hi to us!
Registrations are non-transferable to another person.
It’s totally up to you and your doctor. We see a lot of pregnant runners at our races, and they’re the cutest ones out there!
The powder is all certified non-toxic. We recommend wearing sunglasses or goggles, and a bandana over your mouth and nose in the color zones just for extra protection.
A little rain won’t stop The Happiest 5k! It even makes the color brighter! If there are major weather warnings in your city during the weekend of the event, please stay tuned to our website and social media.
