The Color RunTM, also known as the "Happiest 5K on the Planet", is a 5k run where thousands of runners - all starting in a white T-shirt - get covered in a cloud of color powder which colors them from head to toe. Once the runner finishes the fun continues at the "Color Festival", where more color powder is thrown in the air, making every runner look like a walking rainbow.
