RACINE — Participants are invited to sprint, jog or walk through 5 kilometers of rainbow clouds in The Color Run Dream Tour. By popular demand, this family friendly 5K returns to Racine for the sixth time on Saturday in its only Wisconsin appearance.

The run starts at 9 a.m. on Pershing Drive along Racine’s lakefront. The festival and start/finish line area will be in the Gateway Technical College parking lot behind 1001 Main St.

This year’s Dream Tour theme features giant unicorns, new photo opportunities and new colors. For the first time ever, runners will be transported through a whimsical fog dream tunnel to start their adventure. The course, through the streets of Racine, features the classic color zones and a new foam zone.

In another new addition, participants can spray their dreams on the dream wall to be seen by all. After crossing the finish line, runners will enjoy a finish festival to party with the Runicorn mascot and join in massive color throws every few minutes.

Each runner will receive a limited-edition Dream Tour race shirt, unicorn finisher’s medal, embroidered headband, temporary tattoos and a runner’s bib to decorate.

The Color Run is hosted locally by Real Racine. To register, go to
