"The Happiest 5k On the Planet"
Take an ordinary jog, add some glitter and confetti to it, include a festival of colors, invite thousands of runners to take part, and last but not the least, add a tinge of madness – and what you get, is something absolutely epic – The Color Run!
Termed as the ‘happiest 5k on the planet’, the Color Run is returning to Dubai this Saturday November 12th for the fourth time! Founded in 2011 in the United States, the Color Run is a unique paint race that takes place each year, across numerous destinations around the world, including North America, South America, Asia, Europe, UAE, Australia, and New Zealand. This race has no winners or prizes, but there is a reward that is truly unique – runners (called ‘Colored Runners’) are doused with colours (organic) at stations along the run!
This time around, the Dubai Color Run is a part of the Tropical World Tour, so expect heaps of tropical colors, island style music, and plenty more fun and happiness than ever before! As the runners touch the finish line, the “Finish Festival” awaits. Watch the entire scene explode in colours, confetti and glitter, and witness happiness take over with plenty of music, dancing, color throws and photo-ops.
Motive of the run: The Color Run was founded with an effort to encourage amateur and seasoned runners alike to come together to promote healthiness, happiness, and basically, to have a lot of fun! By giving the jog a super-fun element, the Color Run leaves no stone unturned in motivating participants to live a healthy, active lifestyle.
What each Color Runner receives: A limited-edition Tropicolor race shirt, an embroidered headband, a finisher’s medal on a floral-printed ribbon, and plenty of fun temporary tattoos.
Rules of the race: Cross the start line wearing white, and be drenched in every shade of color by the time you reach the finish line! Sounds fun, right?
