Along the course, participants can show their aspirations on the Dream Wall, snap selfies with giant unicorns, and enjoy the ultimate color party with family and friends at the Finish Festival…including the famous color throws!
Each Color Runner will receive a fun participant kit, which includes; a limited‐edition Dream World Tour race shirt, embroidered headband, a fun temporary tattoo, welcome card, rainbow pencil and some awesome goodies from sponsors.
