WOW! I cannot wait until The Color Run comes back to my city. It was seriously the best day. My friends and I had a blast.
My favorite part was the party at the finish line that had super cool photo ops, live music and even free selfie printers! Thanks Capitec!
Can't wait to see what they have up their sleeves for this year. My friends and I had so much fun last year. We love TCR!
Super excited about the Superhero Tour. I'm running for my papa, he was a hero to me! I'll be raising fund for cancer research.
The Color Run is one of the funnest things my family and I have ever done. Very family friendly and totally awesome!
