If you have been waiting for your chance to be part of a crazy event, this is the one for you.
All information regarding THE COLOR RUN™ in Echternach and your spot on the starting grid can be found here.
Admission & Start
Admission: 11.00 am
First depature: 12.00 noon
Last depature: 1.30 pm
THE COLOR RUN™ is entirely a „Fun Run“ – the most colorful, most entertaining and craziest 5 kilometers in the world. It's not about being first or being the fastest. It’s all about being colorful and a little bit crazy, while having a huge amount of fun!
If you feel like running fast – feel free to run fast. If you want to simply walk all 5 kilometers – you are welcome to do that, too. Each runner – fast or slow, old or young – is welcome to join the fun in this colorful event.
How it works
After your online registration and payment of your starter fee you can pick up your “Starter Kit” as soon as the Thursday before the event. The Starter Kit includes a white T-shirt which you are required to wear during the Color Run™, a headband as well as your starter number. We recommend that you pick up your Starter Kit (the location will be announced in advance on our web page) before the day of the event, to avoid unnecessary stress and long waiting lines on the day of the Color Run™. If necessary you can also pick up your Starter Kit on the morning of the event at the Youth Hostel Echternach. Please ALWAYS bring your ticket as well as some form of ID along with you to pick up your Starter Kit.
Then, off we go to the festival area. The party starts already at 11.00 am. At 12.00 noon we will start the first group of runners – we only allow up to 300 Color Runners™ on the track at the same time so that you have plenty of time to get as colorful as possible in the Color Zones. The next groups of 300 Color Runners™ will start in 10 minute intervals, until the last of you have started running entirely in white.
After each kilometer of the track you will find a „Color Zone“, where color powder will be thrown at you by our volunteers. The color powder is 100% natural and based on corn flower. In all you will cross through four Color Zones and should cross the finish line looking as colorful as possible.
We save the best for last: together with all Color Runners™, our DJs and even more color throwers, we will celebrate the highlight of the Color Run™ – the “Finisher Festival”!
