The Color Run™, the single largest event series in the nation, will
debut in Fort Wayne on July 27, 2013. The event will be held at Parkview Field and will begin at 9 a.m. Registration for the event is open.
Participation in, and buzz for, The Color Run has exploded since its debut last year with more than 1 million "likes" on Facebook and more than 6 million views on YouTube. The Color Run has recently been featured on ESPN, Runner’s World, Sports Illustrated and Wall Street Journal, to name a few.
With no winners or official times, The Color Run celebrates healthiness, happiness, and individuality, bringing the community together to create a five-kilometer canvas of colorful fun in which thousands of participants are doused from head to toe in
different colors at each kilometer.
“We call The Color Run the ‘happiest 5K on the planet’ because our events bring together friends and family in a unique, healthy, and fun environment,” said Travis Snyder, founder of The Color Run. “Our only rules are that people wear white and prepare to be covered in color at the finish!”
The Color Run visited over 50 cities last year with more than 600,000 participants, a feat following their first event in January of 2012. They plan to make 2013 a stellar year, launching more than 100 events with an estimated 1 million participants.
The Color Run chooses an individual charity to donate to in each city they visit and raised donations for over 60 local and national charities in 2012. Their Fort Wayne charity partner will be announced in the upcoming weeks.
