Are you ready for “The Happiest 5K on the Planet”?

It’s cutting it fine, but you still have time to sign up for this year’s Color Run™ set to take place in Durban this weekend.

Durban has always been one of the highlights on The Color Run™ calendar and this year the Rainbow Tour is hitting our fair city, with more colour, sparkles, and highlights.

This year you can look forward to a new venue as well as a fab new route. The Color Run South Africa National Event Co-ordinator, Trevor Latimer, says: “The run starts from the Durban North College, giving us access to some of the city’s most scenic views, and we can’t wait to introduce rainbows to every kilometre of it.”

Once again, headline sponsor – Capitec Bank – will ensure loads of fun and festivities. Foremost for the bank is their Adopt-a-School project, with this year’s recipient being Maphumuzana Primary School in uMlazi.

Charl Nel, Capitec Bank’s head of communications, says: “Capitec strongly supports The Color Run’s principles of healthiness, happiness, individuality, and giving back, which is why we have continued our long-standing relationship with Adopt-a-School, allowing us to contribute to schools in each area in which the event takes place. We donate R10 for each ticket purchased to a deserving school.

“Through Adopt-a-School, we have learned that Maphumuzana Primary requires educator development and classroom-based support programmes in Natural Sciences. All money raised will be donated to this cause.”
