The Color Run Tropicolor™ World Tour

Adado Riverfront Park 300 N Grand Ave. Lansing, MI 48933
Join us at the start line to be whisked away to paradise. The Color Run Tropicolor™ World Tour has more fun, more sun and even more color for you and your friends to experience together and it’s coming to Lansing! The Color Run is known as the ‘Happiest 5k on the Planet,’ and is a unique paint race that celebrates healthiness, happiness, and individuality. The Color Run Tropicolor World Tour will combine the enjoyment of a 5k with all the fun leisure of an island-style vacation–full of unforgettable memories, music, and colors. It will take place on Saturday, July 9 at Adado Riverfront Park starting at 9:00 a.m. Participants will experience an all-new Tropicolor Zone™ on course, where they will be bathed in a tropical array of colors and delicious island scents as they pass through the shade of palm trees, arches, and island-style music. At the Finish Festival, Color Runners will enjoy even more fun at Rainbow Beach, an interactive island featuring music, dancing, unique photo opportunities, and massive color throws. The run will benefit Kelleigh’s Cause, a non-profit that raises awareness and funds for arteriovenous malformation (AVM) research and the Sparrow Foundation, which aims to provide quality, compassionate health care to everyone, every time, regardless of their ability to pay.
