As the Major League Baseball All-Star Game comes to town, San Diego will burst with vibrant colors to celebrate at the Color Run MLB All-Star 5K presented by Nike on Sunday.
The tropical-themed run will douse participants in four different colored powders along the approximately 3.1-mile route, starting and finishing at Waterfront Park downtown. Palm trees, bright inflatables and island-style music will line the course, making for a whimsical journey along the water, through Seaport Village, around the San Diego Convention Center and looping back up to the start.
The Color Run MLB All-Star 5K
When: 7 a.m. Sunday, July 10

After color-soaked runners cross the finish line, the Finish Festival will reward all early-morning exercisers with music, photo ops, giveaways and more massive color throws.
While you’re breaking a sweat, keep an eye out for a few stars running alongside you. Former Padres pitchers Randy Jones and Heath Bell will join in the Color Run 5K. San Diego DJs Marc Thrasher and C-RIZ of 93.3 will perform at the finish line in Waterfront Park during and after the race.
The race starts at 7 a.m. with waves taking off every few minutes until 8:20 a.m. Participants will receive a T-shirt, headband and race medal.
