The Color Run Hero Tour

It’s a bird, It’s a plane, No… it’s The Color Run Hero Tour.

The happiest five kilometres on the planet zooms into the Melbourne with a brand-new hero-themed tour.

Color Runners will soar to new heights in the Hero Zone, confront double the color in Super Zones and suit up in limited edition participant merchandise at Flemington Racecourse.

With no winners or official times, The Color Run caters to everyone from beginners to seasoned athletes. Families, friends and first-timers are encouraged to join the fun at the unique paint race to celebrate health, happiness and individuality.

This year, The Color Run Hero Tour features an all new participant kit including a unicorn hero medal and lightning bolt tee, new course elements and a super-charged Finish Festival for the ultimate experience.

The Color Run is a five-kilometre, un-timed event in which thousands of participants are doused from head to toe in different colors. With only two rules, the idea is easy to follow:

Wear white at the starting line. Finish plastered in color.

The Color Run concludes with a spectacular Finish Festival complete with music, dancing and color throws, creating millions of vivid color combinations.
