The start-line will open at 9am with waves going every few minutes until 9:30am. Be sure to enter the start chute with the people you want to run with. The Village opens at 7am for all our pre-run entertainment.

The Village
This is the central area of the event where all our pre and post run entertainment kicks off. The Start Line and Finish Line are both super close to The Village and will be filled with our sponsors, food vendors, our merchandise store and stage! Of course the stage is where our pre-event Zumba warm up kicks off and where our EPIC Finish Festival takes place! This area is open to the general public so spectators are welcome to come along and wait for their beaaautiful friends and family to complete the run.

The Course
The run is approximately a 5km looped course. The course will be where the Color Zones are located. There will be a water station around the half-way point of the course to keep you hydrated. Water stations will also be located in The Village. This is your time to shine and is the area you absolutely MUST show us your dance moves, skipping technique, slow walk/fast walk, running speed or rolling abilities!

Color Zones
You will pass through at least 4 Color Zones on course! Our Color Zones will be either Pink, Orange, Blue, Yellow, Purple or Green – check out the course map on your city event page to find out what Color Zones you’ll be crossing! The colour is 100% natural, food dyed, food grade corn-starch. We suggest wearing a bandanna, glasses or goggles if you are concerned about the colour entering your mouth or eyes. Throughout the course, there will usually be a ‘Wet Zone’. This means that you will be running through coloured water so be sure to cover your electronics, or any other items that may be damaged, in plastic. Keep an eye out for the SNOW ZONE on course!
