The "happiest 5k on the planet" comes to Salt Lake City

Marking The Color Run’s fifth anniversary, The Color Run Tropicolor World Tour will be in Salt Lake City on Saturday, August 20.

Founded in 2011, The Color Run is deemed “the happiest 5K on the planet,” bringing excitement, fun and, of course, lots of color to each of its events.

This year, the “Tropicolor” theme will be in full effect with an all new Tropicolor Zone, where runners will get doused in island scents and vibrant tropical colors throughout the race. Plus, the fun doesn’t end once participants have completed the race, the Finish Festival will feature more music, dancing, photo opportunities and color throws for runners to enjoy.

Funds from this Salt Lake City run will go to benefit The Chill Foundation. The Chill Foundation is an organization that uses snowboarding as a tool to help local youth build self-esteem and learn valuable life skills.

The 5K begins at 9 a.m. on Saturday, August 20 and will be held at Library Square, 200 E 500 S in Salt Lake City.
