The Color Run Returning To Penn State In September

“The Happiest 5K On The Planet,” The Color Run is making its return to Penn State on Sunday, Sept. 14 as part of its 2014 Kaleidoscope Tour.

The Color Run was a smashing success when it came to Happy Valley during last Homecoming weekend, with 10,000 runners making the event a very bright sellout. The 2014 iteration of the multi-colored marathon promises that “your Instagram friends will thank you” after taking part in this year’s run, which will have its participants run through a kaleidoscope, somehow. Participants for this year’s event also get a Color Run race kit, which includes a t-shirt, tricolor headband, shoulder sling bag, tattoos, and more.

The Color Run has become incredibly popular since its inception in January 2012, hosting 170 events in more than 30 countries in 2013. Though a for-profit event, each Color Run partners with a charity to raise awareness and funds.

More details on pricing, ticket availability, and the marathon route will come soon — those interested can sign up to become a VIP for special pricing and advanced ticket sales. Last time The Color Run came here, the route took participants from Medlar Field, down Porter Road, to both Pollock and Curtin Roads before ending back at Medlar.

In case you didn’t know what a Color Run looks like:
