Gather your team and fill Corona with color at what’s being called the happiest 5k on the planet.

Registration is now open for the Color Run Dream Tour event taking place at Citi Field — home of the New York Mets — on Saturday, May 27.

 

The unique 5k event celebrating health, happiness and individuality will kick off at 9 a.m. Themed “The Dream Tour” this year, the event will feature music, color throws and an all-new Foam Zone and Dream Wall, where runners will be able to spray paint their dreams for all to see. Upon finishing the race, runners will enjoy the Finish Festival, where they’ll find fun photo op and dance opportunities.

With no official times or winners, the race is a fun, non-intimidating environment perfect for helping all participants achieve their fitness goals.

Runners are encouraged to dress for the event with whimsy. Each participant will receive a custom race kit, which includes a limited-edition Dream Tour race T-shirt, a Unicorns Finisher’s Medal, embroidered headband, temporary tattoos and a color-in runner’s bib.

The run will also benefit Back On My Feet, a national nonprofit organization focused on helping homeless people gain independence and living skills and connect them with resources.

“We want The Color Run to bring happiness and health to people’s lives, and even be the motivator that kicks off Color Runners’ healthy lifestyles,” said Alec Fowler, The Color Run’s event director. “We are excited to come to New York City and give Color Runners the opportunity to step into a dream with us and enjoy a 5k that inspires people to get out and be active with their friends and families, all while having a blast!”
