The Color Run Chicago
The Color Run 5k is one of Chicago's premier fun runs combined with a body-painting party. Participants can race solo, or form color teams of four or more members. This event is more about having a great time with family and friends than it is about serious racing. The Color Run welcomes all participants to the starting line, young and old, fast and slow.
The Color Run Chicago takes place at Butler Field in Grant Park. The race starts at the corner of Monroe and Columbus, then heads to the north end of Grant Park. The Course then loops to the south of Grant part before heading back north and finishing at the corner of Jackson and Columbus (between the Art Institute and the Lake.)
