We have so many surprises in store for you in 2017 with 5 Color Zones, a new and improved Finish Festival, introduction of waves for less queuing and even more freebies! Grab your besties and spread the word because tickets will go fast!

We can’t wait to see you! Below is all the information you will need to be ready for race day. Grab your tutus, your friends, and your running shoes and we’ll see you at the start line!


Check-In Party

Warm up

Warm up activities start 30 minutes before your wave time. Make sure you arrive then to get prepped by stretching, laughing and making new friends.

If you have your race pack there’s no need to check in or register when you arrive, just join in the fun!


Fast Track

If you’ve bought a Fast Track ticket make sure that you have your event bib number on the front of your t-shirt. Don’t enter the start chute but follow the signs at the warm up area when you want to start running. You can join the fast track queue and be brought right to the front



The Color Run is an outdoor event so could be affected by weather. The event will not be cancelled in bad weather unless it is unsafe to proceed. Rain is, after all, just liquid sunshine 

Stay tuned to your email, the website, Twitter and our Facebook page during the event week for updates regarding any event related news and weather conditions.
