The Color Run was founded in March of 2011 as an event to promote healthiness and happiness by bringing the community together to participate in the Happiest 5k on the Planet.  They are the original paint race and have created a completely new genre of running events that continues to grow exponentially. Now the single largest event series in the United States, The Color Run has exploded since their debut event.  They have more than tripled their growth, hosting more than 170 events in 30+ countries in 2013.

This time they’re staying up late and bringing even more happiness and entertainment on course with glowing colors and fireworks explosions at the Finish Festival.  If you had fun running with them in the the sun, just wait until the stars come out, you will light up like never before.  Get ready for crazy bright colors, glow gear, and even a blasting festival with a fireworks show!
