The Happiest 5k on the Planet Returns to San Diego
The Color Run Dream Tour, Presented by Lay’s® will make San Diegans’ dreams come true at Qualcomm Stadium on Saturday, November 4, at 9:00 a.m. The largest 5k event series in the world’s new tour, The Color Run Dream Tour, will create a world where anything is possible! The event will take Color Runners into a colorful dream with unicorns and foam clouds.
The 2017 theme will feature music throughout the run, color throws and all new additions like the Lay’s® Poppables™ Foam Zone and Dream Wall! But the San Diego run will be more than just fun and dreamy—it also benefits a great cause. This year’s event will benefit Break the Silence Against Domestic Violence, a nonprofit organization that works to educate communities about the dangers of domestic violence, connect victims and survivors, and assist them through challenging times through various programs.
“We want The Color Run to bring happiness and health to people’s lives, and even be the motivator that kicks off Color Runners’ healthy lifestyles. We are excited to come to San Diego and give Color Runners the opportunity to step into a dream with us and enjoy a 5k that inspires people to get out and be active with their friends and families, all while having a blast!” said Louis Wills, The Color Run’s event director. “Our participants will experience an all new Lay’s Poppables Foam Zone and Dream Wall, fresh photo opps, giant unicorns, tons of color and even more music across the whole course on our Dream Tour.”
Have your camera ready from start to finish, because there will be photo opps galore! From giant unicorns to blasts of vibrant colors, participants will be immersed in the dreamy setting. The Color Run Dream Tour is also bringing a special “Colorfornia” theme to all California The Color Runs. Each city in California will feature a unique element that no other The Color Run features! In San Diego, runners can run through not one, but two Foam Zones on course and have the option to receive a limited-edition San Diego “Colorfornia” tee shirts and collector’s pins!
Catch unicorns frolicking, vibrant music throughout and radiant new colors as you run through the course. In addition to the magical sights and sounds, runners can spray paint their dreams on the Dream Wall. Once participants cross the Finish Line, they can party at the Finish Festival which includes the Runicorn, dancing and massive color throws!
Each Color Runner receives a custom race kit, filled with goodies and gear like a limited-edition Dream Tour race shirt, a Unicorn Finisher’s Medal, embroidered headband, fun temporary tattoos and a color-in runner’s bib.
The Color Run Dream Tour marks the sixth anniversary of The Color Run. The tour will be making stops all around the globe and is anticipated to visit more than 27 countries worldwide in 2017. If you don’t want to miss out on the action, registration for The Color Run is open until the start of the run!
