Seattle’s The Color Run

The Color Run, also known as the Happiest 5k on the Planet, is coming back to Seattle this Sunday, May 13th. The Color Run was founded in 2011 with a mission to bring individuals together to create happy and fun memories, with less focus and worry on the running time. It has quickly become one of the largest running series in the world with over 6 million participants worldwide.

The vibrant and lively run is a five-kilometer and untimed event. At each kilometer, the runners will be doused from head to toe in different colors. There are only two things the participants must worry about – wearing white at the starting line and finish wearing an assortment of colors! Once participants have completed the race, they are welcome to continue the fun at the “Finish Festival”. This post-5k party will include music, dancing and more color throws! To peek into what the run looks like, you can view the colorful photo gallery here.

The Color Run proudly celebrates health, happiness, individuality and giving back. This event caters to all fitness levels, ages and backgrounds. Though this event is all about fun, they hope to encourage healthy and active lifestyles for all individuals. As a for-profit event management company, The Color Run partners with a wide variety of charities in order to highlight their work. They have raised donations for more than 80 local and national charities and have donated more than $5 million.

It is suggested to pick up your packet on Saturday, May 12th at the Check-In Party. You will also have the opportunity to shop at The Color Run Store and meet other runners. If you can’t make the pre-party, not a problem! On the day of, runners can check-in at the Seattle Center Pavilion beginning at 8:00 AM, with waves going until 8:45 AM. The starting line is a party itself with music, dancing, stretching and giveaways. If you are looking to jump start the morning, you can come early for a pre-race yoga warm-up with CorePower Yoga at 7:00 AM.
