The hugely popular The Color Run™ will make its way to Vancouver on Saturday, September 13, introducing fun new elements for returning participants.The event will be held at Pacific National Exhibition (2901 E Hasting St.) and will begin at 9 a.m. Registration for the event is open for teams and individual runners.

With no official race winner, or times, The Color Run celebrates healthiness, happiness and individuality. Runners of all ages, sizes and fitness levels participate in the run; beginning at the start line in all-white clothing and finishing, covered in a rainbow of colors. After each kilometre, a different shade of powder fills the air covering runners. By the time the finish line is reached, the air and runners are filled with vivid color combinations.

After runners complete the 5k, they join the Finish Festival, a larger than life party filled with music, dancing, free swag and massive color throws. This year, The Color Run will roll out The Kaleidoscope Tour that features life-size kaleidoscope triangles, confetti, and colourful arches at the finish to further expand on the colourful theme.

The Color Run Vancouver is proud to be partnering with local charitable organization KidSport Vancouver.

Since its debut in January 2012, support of The Color Run has exploded with more than 3.1 million ‘likes’ on Facebook. Last year, The Color Run visited 50 countries and more than 110 internationally. This year, there will be more than 200 Color Run events with millions of participants.
