Color Run

Color Run

The Color Run will return to Erie on Saturday, August 10 bringing a new vibe with “The Love Tour”!

This will mark the fifth time that the event has been hosted in Erie since 2014, and the first time since 2017.

Dubbed “Happiest 5K on the Planet,” The Color Run is an untimed 5K race in which thousands of Color Runners start the race wearing white and are doused from head to toe in different colors along the race course. The race will start and end in Perry Square in Downtown Erie.

The YMCA of Greater Erie will serve as the local charity partner, receiving a portion of the event proceeds.

On “The Love Tour,” The Color Run is encouraging people to show love for themselves, each other and the planet. The tour will also feature a new 1970s inspired aesthetic, new photo ops and redesigned merchandise. The course will feature two new “double color” zones, in addition to the regular checkpoints, where runners are doused in color powder during their run. After the race, runners will enjoy a re-imagined finish festival, featuring a live DJ and massive color throws.
