Philadelphia Color Run

Media Title

From the grueling Spartan Race to the hometown-pride-filled annual Broad Street Run, Philly has its fair share of physically demanding competitions. Turns out there really is a race for everyone, and this one specifically is guaranteed to leave you happy. Okay, well—it’s intent is to leave you happy. Your body’s still got to cooperate.

With “the Happiest 5k on the planet” as its tagline, The Color Run returns to the area, bringing health, happiness and literal splashes of color to local fitness enthusiasts. Founded back in March 2011, this race is not about beating your best time or trying to keep up with the the uber-athlete running next to you. It’s more about getting off the couch and running—or walking—with your pals in an untimed event to promote wellness. On the three-mile course, racers begin in white clothes, only to be dashed with colorful paints at each kilometer, ending in the well-earned Finish Festival.

This larger-than-life party will be filled with music, dancing and the warm, fuzzy feeling that comes with accomplishment—plus, to add a level of exclusivity to the mix, the Philly Color Run is now part of the newfangled 2014 Kaleidoscope Tour. In addition to the bursts of color, racers now have cool attractions to look for throughout the race, as well as an opportunity to run through a kaleidoscope at the Finish Festival. Racers also receive a kit full of colorful accessories to underscore just how awesome it is to run for fun. // KENNEDY ALLEN
