What on earth does this mean?
I guess you'll have to go on a run to find out, although they do promise that as you enter their magical course, you will experience the classic colour zones and the foam zones where you are to be surrounded by dreamy coloured foam - or clouds as they call them.

You will run through a vibrant colourful dream with music across the entire course. There will be giant unicorns and the dream wall -
which is a new addition to the course - where the runners will get to spray paint their dreams onto the wall.

Once you finish The Color Run, you can enjoy the Finish Festival along with plenty of unique photo opportunities and, of course, the infamous massive colour throw.

There is also a Color Run night experience. After the sun goes down you can join them for this starlit party with glowtastic colour zones, fun bubble zones and great photo opportunities including the glowing colour show and music to provide a very colourful experience.

So what is The Color Run
Well essentially it is a 5 kilometre un-timed fun run which is less about your personal best and more geared to just having a fantastic time. The participants are called colour runners and are covered head to toe with coloured powder at each kilometre.

There are only two rules that participants need to follow:

1. Wear white at the starting line

2. Finish covered in colour from head to toe

The Color Run was founded in America in 2011 and it is all about promoting happiness, healthiness and individuality in bringing communities together. It is now the single largest event worldwide and has held over 300 events in over 50 countries.

The Color Run is a for-profit event management company, but they also work to raise donations for over 50 charities within Australia. To date it has donated more than $1.5 million.

The Color Run is held Australia wide, with the Melbourne event to be held on November 19th 2017.
