Charlotte

Coming Soon
- Postponed due to COVID-19

We miss you. We just want to wrap you all in a colorful hug right now.
Every day we walk past our shelves full of vibrant tee shirts, fun headbands, color powder, unicorn medals, and wonder when we will be able to bring them to you in your city.

Those of us in the event industry have been holding our breath, watching the daily news reports, and looking for some answers that will guide us on what to do. We have 40+ events throughout the US and an additional 20+ internationally. There is no clear or consistent guidance on what is right, so we are acting on the information we do have and what we feel is best.

We will officially be rescheduling The Color Run Charlotte for 2021.
We are currently working with the city and Charlotte Motor Speedway on securing a new date, but this will take longer than any of us would like. City and venues are currently backlogged as each of the postponed yearly events are also trying to create a new date and overall venue schedule.

Once we have a new date, anyone with confirmed registrations will automatically be transferred over to the 2021 event! When that date is announced we will provide you with options, including transfers and refunds if the new date doesn’t work for you.

Hang in there with us!
Until then,
Be Healthy. Be Happy. Be You.

Each new registrant will also be provided a unique referral link that they can share to also earn cash back. For 3-4 referrals, you’ll get $10 back. For 5+, you’ll get $25!* What are you waiting for?!

*You’ll earn back the amount you paid for your ticket. (ex: Glow-Getter package = Get $24.99 back!) A minimum ticket purchase of $19.99 is required to be eligible for the rebate.
