MONTREAL, QC--(Marketwired - August 01, 2016) - The Color Run®, one of the largest 5K event series in the world, and Epson Canada, the global technology leader in innovative and high-quality print solutions and visual communications, have joined forces to inject even more colour to the popular Tropicolor World Tour.
"We're extremely excited about this partnership in Canada, and know that our Colour Runners will look forward to stopping by the Epson EcoTank tent for an extra splash of colour," says Brittany Evans, Sponsorship Director for The Color Run®.
The Color Run will be in Montreal on August 13th where participants can stop by the Epson EcoTank tent for a post-race photo opp and to check out Epson's line of EcoTank printers and Runsense™ GPS sport watches.
"This partnership perfectly aligns with our EcoTank line of cartridge-free printers that come with up to two years of colour ink," says Karen Rowden, Marketing Manager at Epson Canada. "Participants can have their photos taken at the EcoTank tent after the race and take home the photos printed with our EcoTank printers. We're delighted to be a part of 'The Happiest 5k on the Planet' and look forward to seeing runners at their brightest. The event will make for some great prints."
Cartridge-free EcoTank® printers include up to two years of ink in the box1 and the freedom to print thousands of pages in colour. These printers offer an unbeatable combination of convenience and value, with super-high-capacity refillable ink tanks and ultra low-cost replacement ink tanks that are ideal for home, small business and high-volume business printing.
In 2016, The Color Run debuts its Tropicolor World Tour that will combine the enjoyment of a 5k with all the fun leisure of an island-style vacation -- full of unforgettable memories, music, and colors.
Since its inception in 2012, The Color Run has become a global phenomenon and in 2016 it 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.
