The Color Run
Founded in 2011, it is described on its website as "a five-kilometer, untimed event. At each kilometer mark, Color Runners are doused from head to toe in a different colored powder. Participants wear white at the starting line and finish the race plastered in color. Once the race is over, the fun continues at the Finish Festival, a larger-than-life party equipped with music, dancing, photo ops, activity booths, vendors, and more massive color throws, which create millions of vivid color combinations."
NOTE: The use of the American spelling of "color" is correct in the name of the run, in view of its origins. South African usage is normally "colour"
South African cities listed on the website include Port Elizabeth, Johannesburg, Benoni, Pretoria, Durban, Polokwane, and Cape Town.
The 2018 version of the run was dubbed The Carnival Tour.
