The Color Run

The Color Run:

The Color Run™, aka the Happiest 5k on the Planet, is less about your 10-minute-mile and more about having the time of your life! The Color Run is a five-kilometer, un-timed race in which thousands of participants, or “Color Runners”, are doused from head to toe in different colors at each kilometer. The fun continues after Color Runners complete the race with an unforgettable Finish Festival. This larger than life party is equipped with music, dancing and massive color throws, which create millions of vivid color combinations.

This is a unique paint race that celebrates healthiness, happiness, individuality, and giving back to the community. The Color Run also focuses on giving back, choosing a local charity for each city we visit. They raised donations for over 80 local and national charities since 2012. To date, The Color Run has donated more than $3 million to charity.

Snag a Swag bag full of goodies from The Color Run when you get registered!!

Promo Code Details:

Use the Promo code: COLOR5OFF but hurry, the races sell out fast! **IMPORTANT** Code can only be used once per transaction. If you are registering more than one person, complete the process with the Code and then repeat for each person after. The code is good for any race that is not sold out and it does not guarantee you a spot in the race so once you find the race you’d like to participate in, you’ll need to enter soon!  Important: Code must be entered at time of registration, cannot be retro-applied.

  1. hi i am tyring to register and want to use the color5off. it is not taking it. anyway i get get help

    • Hi Blanca! Were you cutting and pasting the Code Discount? It may not work if you copy/paste, so try entering it in by hand. If it’s still not working, let me know and I’d be happy to continue checking in to it for you!

    • Hi again Blanca,
      Based on the city you are registering for the code may not be valid yet if the registration is not open yet. Check for the starting date of ticket sales, and let me know if it’s still not working.
      Thanks!

    I’m trying to register a team of 4 for the buffalo run but it’s not allowing me too. Do I need to wait until March 25th or can I register earlier?

    • Registration begins on March 25th, so mark your calendar and be ready! :) Have you run this race before? It’s so much fun – you’ll have a blast!!

  3. It won’t work for me :( Trying to register for Burlington and it says code is expired.

    • Hi Brandi – The code will work once the Race Registration opens up for your City. Looks like March 25th is the first day you can register for Burlington, so mark your calendar and head back to re-enter the code! Let me know if you are still have troubles, and I will see what more I can do for you! Thanks for the feedback!!

  12. Shawn McCloskey says:

    why is there a fee from fuse sport and it just keeps growing! and we are registering like seven to 8 people and i think the coupon should work on all of ours!

    • Hi Shawn,
      Yes, the coupon will work for each person, but you can only use the code once per transaction. So if you are registering multiple people you will have to register one, use the code and check out, and then continue the process. That’s the way that The Color Run tech side has it set up, so when I registered my family, we had a bit of a process, but saved a bundle! Also, I went through the registration process again just now to understand what the Fuse Sports fee is about and I’m not seeing it on my end. I do have to agree to an Individual Insurance Policy for just under $2.00, and there is a processing fee as well. (Which is typical for any Race signups.) If you have any additional questions, feel free to get a hold of me: Hannah @ fabulesslyfrugal (dot) com. (Hope all of that helps you in the process! It’s really a fun race!!)

  13. I can’t get the code to work for the Washington D.C. race. Is there another code I can try? I’m only registering myself, even though I am registering us as team.

  14. It says that the coupon code is no longer valid :(

  15. Hi it’s not letting me use the code either. I’m registering for New Orleans. Entered the code and it doesn’t do a thing. Please help me, thanks!

    • Hi Melissa – I was able to get in touch with The Color Run team and they said that registration just opened for New Orleans. During the Team Special (expiring on 4/25) the discount code will not be valid. If you want to register as a team now, you will get the team discount code. If you are registering as an individual you’ll need to wait until 4/26 to register with the COLOR5OFF code. Hope that helps – if you have any additional questions, feel free to get a hold of me at hannah (at) fabulesslyfrugal (dot) com.

      • Hi and thanks for responding. After the 25th will the individual runner be the same price at 40.00 or will it go up? If it’ll go up then I’ll just register now so I don’t have to pay more. Thanks again.

        • Hi again Melissa! The price for an individual runner will go up to $40 starting June 1st. So after April 25th, you’ll have that window to register at the $35 price and then it’ll be $30 with the code. Happy Running!!

  16. Heather says:

    Thanks! Just used the code for Oahu and it saved my family of 4 $20. I only had to use the code once and registered my family as a team! Awesome!

  17. COLOR5OFF not working for Tucson

  18. Michelle Morris says:

    How long is this $5 off promo code good for? I am trying to get a team together and want to offer the $5 off promo to everyone but let them know that they only have until a certain date that this is good for. thanks.

    • Hi Michelle,
      It mainly depends on what city you are registering for. The code will work until the city sells out, and will only work if applied one at a time. You can still use the team option, but will need to complete each registration separately.

  19. Trying to register my team for Philadelphia and it’s saying it’s not valid!

  20. Fiona Moore says:

    trying to register a team in Adelaide and the code wont work

    • Hi Fiona,
      You will need to register each person separately, but the code should work. Please let me know if it’s still not working for you.

  21. At BRISBANE its broken!

    The discount code that you entered is not valid. Please try again.

    NOW I AM SAD

  22. I registered a couple of months ago, but it says I need to complete something. It is asking me to pay again. I thought I already paid. help!

  23. Ricardo Cabrera says:

    COLOR5OFF not working for us in San Diego. Could you please advise?

    • Hi! Tickets go on sale July 15th for San Diego so the code will not work until then. Mark your calendar and then get registered right away! San Diego will be a popular one! :) Hope you have a great time!!

  24. Kaitlyn says:

    I have not had luck using the code for the Minneapolis one.

  25. Thank you so much! I just registered myself and my fiance for Windsor, Ontario, Canada for next weekend. It’s my second Color Run. So excited!!!!

  26. Kimberly says:

    The code is not working for the Johnson City Run. It says it is invalid.
