If the Color Run’s last stop in Boston still has you washing color powder out of your clothes, it’s time to put away the bleach. The so-called “Happiest 5K on the Planet” is coming back to Massachusetts for its fifth anniversary.

For those unfamiliar, the Color Run is a great Instagram opportunity low-key, un-timed 5K during which runners are doused in color powder that “mostly” comes out of clothes and shoes. It’s followed by a massive post-race party involving music, dancing, and, yes, more color throws.

The Color Run’s 2016 theme is “Tropicolor.” Expect inflatable palm trees, beach balls, leis, and island-inspired tunes.

The festivities come to Gillette Stadium on June 11. Regular registration costs $50, and includes race entry, a t-shirt, a medal, and a headband. For an extra $15, the deluxe kit includes a trucker hat, lei, and sunglasses.

Starts at $50, 10 a.m., 6/11. One Patriot Place, Foxboro,
