Thousands of people are in for a shimmery surprise when the Happiest 5k on the Planet, The Color Run brings its unforgettable colour drenched fun to Canberra on Sunday, 28 February on the last stop of its Shine World Tour.

With a festival atmosphere like no other, The Color Run is now the biggest running series in the world, creating a huge community devoted to dancing and skipping their way through rainbows of colour.

Having celebrated more than 15,000 birthdays, hosted more than 450,000 people and thrown more than 300,000 kilograms of colour across Australia, there’s no better day out than The Color Run.

Following its success in 2015, this year’s running music festival will see thousands flock to Stage 88 at Commonwealth Park to celebrate health, happiness and individuality.

As the last stop for The Color Run Shine Tour before a new world tour is launched, The Color Run Race Director, Rob McElligott is promising a few surprises for everyone involved.

“We’re really looking forward to bringing The Color Run back to Canberra and have a few amazing things up our sleeve that our colour runners will be the first and last to experience,” said McElligott.

“What better place to share some new Color Run surprises than our nation’s capital? The Shine Tour has been an incredible success and we’ve saved the best for last, we can’t wait to go out with a bang!”

Canberra’s very own Merrymaker Sisters, Emma and Carla, will also be joining in on the fun.

The Color Run is an all ages event that encourages participants of all shapes, sizes and fitness levels to party into the night.

The event is a strictly alcohol and drug free environment that promotes happiness, healthiness and individuality whilst getting colourful.

Well I’m glad that the colour run is no longer passing itself off as a charity, what with being a a for profit and all. Especially considering that the price is near identical to last year, even with the charities taken out.
