Dubbed the ‘happiest 5K on the planet’, the Color Run is a mix between India’s Holi festival (the festival of colours) and a half-an-hour jog with thousands of friends.
The event isn’t new to Dubai but this year’s Color Run is part of The Tropicolor World Tour, whch brings a fun and fresh Caribbean twist to post-run celebrations.
Participants can look forward to the island-themed Finish Festival at the ‘Rainbow Beach’, which will feature steel drummers, dancing and massive color throws.
Each Color Runner will receive a brand new Tropicolor Race Pack complete with t-shirt, headband and flower lei.
More than 34,000 Color Runners took part in the past three Dubai events and this year event is set to be just as popular.
According to the organizers, it’s a perfect event for first-time runners and anyone looking to lead a healthier lifestyle.
A limited number of Deluxe Packs are available for Color Runners this year, starting from Dhs240 and including special perks such as VIP parking and tropical-themed merchandise such as party sunglasses.
Limited early bird tickets are now on sale for Dhs140, with kids aged four and under running for free.
You can buy them online on www.thecolorrun.ae or at Adventure HQ stores in JBR, Times Square Centre and Galleria Mall in Dubai, and Yas Mall and Dalma Mall in Abu Dhabi.
$1 from every registration will be donated to Friends of Cancer Patients.
