Announcing The Color Run Tropicolor™ World Tour

The Happiest 5k on the Planet Is Bringing an Island-Style Vacation to Cities Across the Globe

SALT LAKE CITY, UT--(Marketwired - November 06, 2015) - The Color Run®, the largest 5k event series in the world, today announced its 2016 tour theme, "The Color Run Tropicolor™ World Tour."

Each year, The Color Run introduces a new and exciting way to run -- and 2016 will be no different. The Tropicolor World Tour will combine the enjoyment of a 5k with all the fun leisure of an island-style vacation -- full of unforgettable memories, music, and colors.

The Color Run recently released a teaser video to showcase the Tropicolor experience.

"We are excited to share The Color Run Tropicolor World Tour with our runners and can't wait to bring this event to cities across the world," said Travis Snyder, Founder of The Color Run. "We hope that all our Color Runners will be able to step into paradise with us and enjoy a 5k vacation that only The Color Run can create."

The Tropicolor World Tour enhances the experience that Color Runners already love with an all-new Tropicolor Zone on course where participants will be bathed in a tropical array of colors and island scents as they pass through palm trees, arches, and island-style music. During the Finish Festival, participants can enjoy fun and interaction at The Color Run's Rainbow Beach with music, dancing, massive color throws, and unique photo opportunities. Runners will also receive a limited edition participant kit.

Since its inception in 2012, The Color Run has become a global phenomenon and in 2016 and continues to innovate the 5k paint race genre. With more than five million runners crossing its finish line since 2012, The Color Run caters to all fitness types -- from first time runners to professional athletes. After sweeping across the United States in its first year with 53 events, The Color Run, in 2015, hosted over 230 events in 39 countries across the world.

The Tropicolor World Tour marks the fifth anniversary of The Color Run. The tour will be making stops all around the globe and is anticipated to visit more than 40 countries worldwide in 2016. Tickets are now on sale for select cities with more dates being added weekly.
