Runners take part in The Color Run, known as the happiest 5K on the planet, in Brighton, England. Runners of all shapes, sizes and speeds start wearing white clothing that is a blank canvas for the kaleidoscope of colors they encounter around the course. At each kilometer, a different color of powder is thrown in the air with the runners becoming a constantly evolving artwork. At the end of the course runners are greeted by the Color Festival where the air is filled with music and stunning colored powder bursts creating a vibrant party atmosphere.
