The Color Run paints The Square

The Color Run, MLB 5K, brought thousands of runners into The Square

The Color Run, part of MLB's All Star weekend, brought thousands of runners and guests into The Square Sunday morning.

The run started at Voinovich Bicentennial Park with a course that brought them through the city before ending in Public Square. The finish line along Superior Avenue was covered with inflatable archways and a giant bubble making machine. Runners were greeted with a celebration on the Gund Foundation Green which included a live DJ, color throws, food and beer. The Color Run is coined as "The Happiest 5K on the Planet," because it isn't meant to be a competitive race. Public Square was the perfect host site for The Color Run, to help kick off All Star week activities across the city.


The reimagined Public Square is part of The Group Plan's mission to better connect Public Square, the Malls, and the lakefront.
