WILLOUGHBY HILLS, OH (WOIO) -

The Color Run took place in Willoughby Hills on Saturday!

The Color Run has exploded since its debut last year. With no winners or official times, The Color Run celebrates healthiness, happiness, and individuality, bringing the community together to create a five-kilometer canvas of colorful fun in which thousands of participants are doused from head to toe in different colors.

"We call The Color Run the 'happiest 5K on the planet' because our events bring together friends and family in a unique, healthy, and fun environment," said Travis Snyder, founder of The Color Run. "Our only rules are that people wear white and prepare to be covered in color at the finish!"

The Color Run visited over 50 cities last year with more than 600,000 participants, a feat following their first event in January of 2012. They plan to make 2013 a stellar year, launching more than 100 events with an estimated 1 million participants.
