The Color Run

Back in Barcelona for the fourth year, The Color Run by Skittles is a fun run with a difference. Reminiscent of the Hindu festival Holi, this 5k race sees runners transformed into moving works of art, blasted with brightly colored powders as they run a simple route through Parc del Fòrum.

Live music is provided along the way, while renowned DJs will keep the atmosphere buzzing with four hours of music throughout the morning. Entry is free for under 8s, €14 for children age 9–13, and between €20 and €30 for over 14s, depending on when tickets are bought and whether you’re running as an individual or in a team. Tickets include a Color Run T-shirt, headband, backpack, temporary tattoos and colored powder, as well as free gifts from event sponsors.

The cap is set at 15,000 runners, so be sure to sign up early to take part.
