The Color Run, AKA the Happiest 5k on the Planet, is one of the most unique runs you’ll ever do. Add in the fact that it all happens along the waterfront and you’ve got yourself a once in a lifetime experience right there, which means it 100% deserves a spot on your #summerbucketlist.
This ridiculously fun paint race celebrates healthiness, happiness, and individuality while stepping out, getting a little messy (in a super cute way), and truly enjoying yourself for a few hours. Lucky for us, The Color Run is bringing their new Tropicolor World Tour to Canalside this August for an island-style 5k like you’ve never seen.


Here’s how it works:

Step 1: Sign up for the Happiest 5K on the Planet! (Make sure to register soon to save $5 using code STEPOUT!)

Step 2: You’ll get a whole bunch of TCR gear for the big day – think Limited Edition Tropicolor Race Shirt, an embroidered headband, tattoos, a finishers metal, color packet (you’ll need this!).

Step 3: You and your group of friends (you texted them somewhere around Step 1.5) head to Canalside for a day filled with puffs of color everywhere you look, music and dancing, enthusiastic Buffalonians ready to enjoy their day on the waterfront, and an awesome afterparty with more photo ops than a Buffalo Sunset. Oh yea, and some running too!

Step 4: You might want to take a shower some time before work on Monday. #ornot

Pro tip: Not super into running? That’s okay! This is one of the best runs to get your feet wet and go at your own pace. Who wants to speed through those color showers anyway?
Now, head to and enter code STEPOUT to get $5 off your ticket before prices increase soon!
