The Color Run Windsor 2018 Hero Tour

September 1, 2018 @ 8:00 am - 12:00 pm

The Color Run Windsor, Ontario

The Color Run returns to Windsor featuring the Hero Tour starting and ending at Riverfront Festival Plaza on September 1, 2018.

It’s a bird! It’s a plane! No… it’s The Color Run Hero Tour! Flying your way in 2018, celebrate the hero in you in a realm where NOTHING is impossible and you are UNSTOPPABLE! Soar to new heights in the Hero Zone; confront double the color in the Super Zones; suit up in gear fit for only the most super of heroes.

This year’s theme features an all new participant kit, new course elements, and a super-charged Finish Festival. Will you rise to the challenge and be a #TCRHero?

The Color Run promotes healthiness and happiness by bringing the community together to participate in the “Happiest 5k on the Planet”. The Color Run has exploded and is now the single largest event series in the world. The Color Run has been experienced by over 6 million runners worldwide in 35+ countries, and continues to be a leader in the fun running space.

The Color Run in Windsor is a five-kilometer, un-timed race along Windsor’s Riverfront in which thousands of participants, or “Color Runners”, will be doused from head to toe in different neon colors at each kilometer.

With only two rules, the idea is easy to follow:

1. Come to the starting line dressed in your biggest and brightest neon styles.

2. Finish plastered in glowing color!

The fun continues after Color Runners complete the race with an unforgettable Finish Festival at Riverfront Festival Plaza. This larger than life party is equipped with music, dancing and massive color throws, which create millions of vivid color combinations.

Trust us, this is the best post-5k party on the planet.

The Color Run is an event for all fitness levels, ages and backgrounds. The tag line, “The Happiest 5k on the planet”, was created after seeing the expressions of pure joy from participants.

With no winners or official times, The Color Run caters to everyone –first time runners to seasoned athletes. Some Color Runners participate as a celebration and capstone of their healthy living accomplishments, while others participate for reasons unique to them.

As a for-profit event management company, The Color Run partners with charities to help shine a light on their amazing work within society and highlight the causes they stand for.

The Alzheimer Society Of Windsor – Essex County is recruiting volunteers for this year’s Color Run Windsor 2018.

Established in Windsor in 1981, the Alzheimer Society Of Windsor Essex County is dedicated to serving those with Alzheimer’s disease, and related dementia and their caregivers in the community. There are currently over 5800 people diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease or related dementia in Windsor and Essex County. It is projected that these numbers will double within 25 years. Over 100 years after its discovery, there is still no known cause or cure for Alzheimer’s disease. What is know is that this disease can affect anyone.

The Society receives a donation for every volunteer that is recruited.
