The Color Run presented by Alcatel Onetouch, the largest 5k paint race event series in the world, will be in Bangor on Aug. 23. The event will be held at Waterfront and will begin at 8 a.m. Registration is open for individual runners and teams.
The Color Run debuts their new Shine Tour in 2015, bringing a fresh spin and unique experience to Color Runners around the world. The Shine Tour enhances the experience that Color Runners already love with an all-new Sparkle Zone on course with unique opportunities for colorful photographs throughout the course. At the Finish Festival, participants can enjoy music, dancing and massive color throws with accents of new confetti cannons, shimmery clouds of color, sparkle and more. Color Runners will receive a limited edition Shine Tour Participant Kit, including: custom race T-shirt, gold finisher’s medal, shiny tattoos, tri-color headband with silver stitching, classic color packet and brand-new shine powder packet.
“With the Shine Tour, we wanted to create an immersive and transformative experience beyond anything our runners have experienced with us so far,” said Travis Snyder, founder of The Color Run. “The Shine Tour is the next generation of The Color Run, and participants will be able to feel and visibly see themselves transform throughout each kilometer of the event.”
The Color Run, a for-profit company, loves the opportunity it has to partner with charities to help shine a light on their amazing work within society and highlight the causes they stand for.
In its fourth year, The Color Run is one of the largest event series in history. In 2014, The Color Run was host to events in more than 30+ countries and 270 cities worldwide. Close to 50 percent of Color Runners are first-time 5k runners and participate as a celebration and capstone of their healthy living accomplishments.
The event will include activation with presenting sponsor Alcatel Onetouch and national sponsors Shout, Post-It, KIND and Kohl’s.
