The Village
This is the central area of the event where all our pre and post run entertainment kicks off. The Start Line and Finish Line is closely located to The Village and therefore it will be the area you usually enter before you start the run and also where you will end up when you finish the run. The Village is the place to be and will be filled with our sponsors, food vendors, our merchandise store and stage!! Of course the stage is where our pre-event Zumba warm up kicks off and where our EPIC Finish Festival takes place. This area is open to the general public so spectators are welcome to come along and wait for their beaaautiful friends and family to complete the run.

The Start
The Start Chute opens 10 minutes prior to the run.
Waves of approx. 500 participants will start the run every 3-6 minutes.
Be sure to enter the Start Chute with the people you wish to run with!
The Start Chute will only remain open for approx. 30-45 minutes from when the run starts. Therefore, make sure you check out your city’s event page to see what time you need to arrive to gain entry to the course!

The Course
The run is approximately a 5km looped course
The course will be where our AHHHHMAZING Color Zones are located
There will be a water station around the half-way point of the course to keep you hydrated. Water stations will also be located in The Village.
This is your time to shine and is the area you absolutely MUST show us your dance moves, skipping technique, slow walk/fast walk, running speed or rolling abilities! (Basically – you don’t need to run the full 5k if you’re not up to it – it’s all about having FUN!).

Color Zones
You will pass through at least 4 Color Zones on course!
Our Color Zones will be either Pink, Orange, Blue, Yellow, Purple or Green – check out the course map on your city event page to find out what Color Zones you’ll be crossing!
The colour is 100% natural, food dyed, food grade corn-starch.
We suggest wearing a bandanna, glasses or goggles if you are concerned about the colour entering your mouth or eyes.
Throughout the course, there will usually be a ‘Wet Zone’. This means that you will be running through coloured water so be sure to cover your electronics, or any other items that may be damaged, in plastic.
Keep an eye out for the SNOW ZONE on course!

The Finish Festival
The Finish Festival is the place to burn even more calories! We’ll have a DJ, music and INCREDDDDIBLE Color Throws happening here – trust us this is the BEST post 5k party on the planet!
As you cross the Finish Line, you will be given a colour packet. Make sure you hang onto it and take it to the stage for a Color Throw! Additional colour can be purchased from The Store, within The Village.
Our Cleaning Zone is located right near the Finish Festival and our Color Blowers will do their best to help clean off any excess colour!
