Dubbed the world’s happiest 5k, The Color Run is now something of a Dubai institution, as it returns for its fifth event.
Bringing the bright paints akin to the Indian festival of Holi to a gentle run around Dubai Autodrome has proved a massive hit with the thousands of runners who return every year.
Whether it’s the first taste of cooler temperatures or the glorious selfie potential of being smothered in colour, the Daman ActiveLife event regularly attracts more than 30,000 strollers, joggers and sprinters.
Join them on Saturday, 11th November, in your most colourful outfits (that you don’t mind getting paint on) and take on the course’s six vibrant colour zones, snap selfies with giant unicorns and share your aspirations on the Dream Wall. New for 2017 is the foam zone, where foam clouds will turn the race course into a big Ibizan-style foam party!
Participants can look forward to the famous colour throws at the finish festival and everyone taking part will receive a t-shirt, embroidered headband, a temporary tattoo, rainbow pencil and other goodies.
Early bird tickets are AED 140 and available at www.colorrun.ae and Reebok stores in Dubai Mall, Dubai Marina Mall, Mirdif City Centre and Yas Mall in Abu Dhabi.
