The Color Run Racine — The Happiest 5k on the PlanetTM — brings the all-new Shine Tour to Racine’s lakefront Pershing Park on Saturday, May 23 starting at 9 a.m.

The focus is on fun as The Color Run Shine Tour showers runners and walkers with bright color (food grade cornstarch) and glitter along a 5k course through the streets of Racine.

The fun surprises continue from start to finish. Participants will wind their way through four color zones — pink, purple, blue and yellow — before finishing their run through clouds of glitter!

A high-energy, after-race party kicks in at Pershing Park with music, dancing and color tosses. Don’t forget your camera or phone. Food, beverages and The Color Run’s exclusive merchandise will be available for purchase.

Your registration includes a limited edition Shine Tour kit, including a custom race t-shirt, gold finishers medal, glittery tricolor head band, special edition glitter pack, classic color pack, new gold tattoos and much more.

Act now before the prices increase THIS Wednesday (April 15). Register at www.thecolorrun.com/racine. Use code TCRRACINE to save $5 per registration.
