Color My Run is a popular series of urban 3K and 5K fun runs, where thousands of participants are bombarded with vibrant color at every kilometer along the course. The experience culminates at the finish line with fun, music, and the celebratory "Splash Bash Party" - an explosion of vivid color creating one of the most dazzling and stunning spectacles the eye has ever seen.
