It is time to make magic and share your get up and glow as the happiest 5K on the planet – The Color Run – is coming to Manchester.

With a theme of Make Magic, the global phenomenon is back in the UK and looking for the dreamers, believers, and magic-makers who want to add some real colour to their lives.

Now in its eighth year, The Color Run organisers are guaranteeing participants, whether it is their first time or not, that they will make magic, make memories, and make more together.

Prepare for a rainbow of fun with family, friends or colleagues as you shake and shimmer your way along the 5km route – with a colour explosion at every kilometre – followed by a huge colour throwing party at the finish line where you can dance off any extra energy to some cool DJ tunes.

“The Color Run has enormous appeal – more than seven million people across 50 countries have experienced this incredible event – and we can’t wait to bring The Color Run to Manchester.

It’s not about the time or the distance it’s about clocking up smiles and having the most amazing time. There’s nothing like seeing those pristine whites at the start ending up plastered in colour. Everyone has a huge grin on their face at the finish line, which is where the fun really gets going!

There is a real party atmosphere from start to finish and you can see it what people wear as well as they really go to town. We see all kinds of crazy outfits while The Color Run has branded wigs, hair dyes, tutus, headbands and socks for those that want to be dressed for the most colourful event of the year.

There have been many imitations, but this is the original The Color Run, and we really go to town so that it is perfect for everyone who takes part.” (Alan Brown, race director for The Color Run UK)
