The Color Run is a fun and interactive way to get fit with your friends and family. Most people dread the idea of having to go to the gym and pounding away on a treadmill. This interactive experience incorporates running and/or walking with a literal splash of color. 

The way it works is that each participant shows up to the event dressed in all-white attire, and after each kilometer, the runners are sprayed with different-colored paint. For example, once a runner reaches 1k, they get covered in yellow dust, 2k is blue, 3k is green, 4k is pink and the final kilometer is a "color extravaganza."

If that’s not a blast of fun already, the event kicks off with an after party filled with live music, food and festivities. The Color Run is an inventive way to encourage staying fit, but also makes for a great day out in the sun.
