Celebrate happiness and healthiness by participating in the 2016 Color Run! Known as the original paint race, the world’s first Color 5K event was founded in March 2011 as a way to bring the community together in a heart healthy way. Now one of the largest and most popular events in the world, the Color Run has expanded since its modest beginnings, currently hosting events in over 200 cities and 40 countries every year.

Taking place on May 21, 2016, this year's 10-minute mile Tropicolor World Tour event marks the fifth anniversary of the Color Run and will be bigger and better than ever!

This time around, participants will experience an all-new Tropicolor Zone on course, where they will be bathed in a delightful array of vibrant tropical colors and delectable island fragrances as they frolic through towering palm trees while surrounded by enchanting island music.

Sounds amazing, huh? I think so too, especially if you've never been to the islands. At the Finish Festival, Color Runners can engage in more excitement at Rainbow Beach, which is a separate social island of dancing, unique photo opportunities, color throws, and more!

In the midst of the excitement, don't think for one minute that you'll leave empty-handed! Each Color Runner will also receive the official limited-edition Tropicolor race shirt, finisher’s medal, embroidered headband, and fun temporary tattoos!

This is the last week to register, so visit the website at https://thecolorrun.com/locations/baltimore/ and secure your spot to heart-healthy fun today! If you think that participating during the daytime sounds like fun, try experiencing it at night!
