Dubbed the “happiest 5K on the planet”, The Color Run™ 2015 will be in Durban on July 12.
The Color Run is a feel-good, happy, colourful event. “Color Runners”go from wearing white clothing to being covered in prismatic colour. At each kilometre mark, a different colour of powder is showered on the participants, creating an ever-increasing spectrum of colour and beauty. At the finish line, the colour festival kicks off and the promises to be filled with millions of vivid colours as runners get in on the colour-throwing fun.
The Color Run is the single largest 5km event series in the world, which hosted more than 300 events in over 50 countries in 2014. It’s already been run in Port Elizabeth in May, with over 7 000 Color Runners participating in the fun.
Durban Color Runners can expect lots of exciting additions, including in-race obstacles a sprinkle of glitter and a few other surprises.
