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 the Pacific National Exhibition (2901 E. Hastings 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 starting line in all-white clothing and finishing, covered in a rainbow of colours. 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 colour combinations.
After runners complete the 5k, they join the Finish Festival, a larger than life party filled with music, dancing, free swag and massive colour 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.
Solo runner/walker cost is $60 and team runners and walkers cost is $55. Children under the age of five are free. To register or for more details, please visit: www.thecolorrun.com/canada.
