ATLANTA, April 20, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Cricket Wireless is giving the "Happiest 5k On The Planet" a big splash of green as the exclusive wireless sponsor of The Color Run. Cricket will have dedicated race zones at all events across the country, where runners will be splashed with the color green as they pass through.
"Cricket's guiding principle is about giving people something to smile about and it's at the heart of what makes our brand and service special," said Tiffany Baehman, vice president and chief marketing officer, Cricket Wireless. "The Color Run sponsorship makes strategic sense and aligns nicely with our brand and the idea of making the world a happier place."
At specific events across the country, Color Runners can visit Cricket's "Smile Zone" pre-race to multifunctional headwear and hair chalk, and stop by after the race to jump on a "smile tile" for a blast of green color and build their own Cricket-branded sunglasses.
"We're excited to add this well-known running series to our sponsorship portfolio as it gives us a new way to reach consumers, and color the town green," said Baehman.
