The second Color Run to hit Baltimore happens Sunday, November 17! In case you missed the May event, view the colorful photos here. Cool Kids Campaign has been selected once again as the charity recipient for this event. At this time, volunteer slots are totally filled. THANK YOU BALTIMORE!
What is The Color Run™?
The Color Run™ 5K is a unique experience focused less on speed and more on crazy COLOR fun with friends and family. Color runners come in all different ages, shapes, sizes and speeds; but everyone toeing the start line has a blast! Whether you’re a casual morning mall walker or an Olympic athlete, the 3 miles of The Color Run™ course will be the most memorable and colorful run of your life!

Baltimore-exclusive Color Run T shows your commitment to childhood cancer awareness while 100% of sales benefit Cool Kids Campaign programs for children with cancer.
We receive a donation from The Color Run for every one of the 400 volunteers we have recruited! Volunteers will help out in the areas of packet pickup, color zones, on course, at start/finish lines and check-in! Directions and more info will be distributed to you closer to the event. At this time, volunteer slots are totally filled. Thank you to everyone for your support!
How does The Color Run work?
The four different ‘color zones’ in the run/walk include a slew of volunteers who throw colored cornstarch onto the runners as they go by. It’s an absolute blast and an amazing opportunity to involve our Cool Kid families, Teen Club and Super Sibs! For runners, The Color Run™ has TWO SIMPLE rules: 1) white shirts are mandatory at the start line – provided with registration fee; and 2) everyone and everything is color-plastered at the finish line! Runners and walkers begin the 5K at the start line like a brand new pristine coloring book. By the end, they look like they fell into a Willy Wonka tie-dyed vat of colored goodness. We are the creators of an all new paint race phenomenon!
What is the color made of?
Each kilometer of the event is associated with a designated color: yellow, orange, pink and blue. As the runners and walkers reach the kilometer COLOR zones, they are blitzed by volunteers, sponsors, and staff with COLOR (dyed cornstarch). All products are 100% natural and safe. You can eat the stuff if you’d like, although we have tried it and don’t suggest it – surprisingly high in calories and leaves a chalky aftertaste! Of course, we save the best for last, ending the race with a color extravaganza of epic proportions.
