This race is less about speed and finishing time and more about having fun. The Color Run is a five-kilometer, un-timed race which attracts thousands of participants every fall in New York City.

The runners wear all-white clothes before the start and are doused in different colors at each kilometer. So they finish covered with rainbow shades from head to toes.

After the race, the fun goes on with the noisy and crazy Finish Festival. Get ready for music, dancing, and more massive color throws. Discover you inner child and let it out! This is one day in a year when everyobody is allowed to get messy and dirty.

Color run is a popular paint race that promotes happiness and individuality. One of the largest in the world, The Color Run has been done by over 6 million runners worldwide in more than 35 countries.
