Color Run 5K: Less about your 10-minute-mile and more about having the time of your life! The Color Run is a five-kilometer, un-timed race in which thousands of participants, or “Color Runners”, are doused from head to toe in different colors at each kilometer. The run will take place at the Colisuem starting at 9:00 a.m. on May 19. With only two rules, the idea is easy to follow:
Wear white at the starting line
Finish plastered in color!
The fun continues after Color Runners complete the race with an unforgettable Finish Festival. This larger than life party is equipped with music, dancing and massive color throws, which create millions of vivid color combinations. Trust us, this is the best post-5k party on the planet!
