Get messy (and run 5km) for charity

The Colour Run comes to Dubai in December

Knowledge story

Fancy getting messy and adding some colour to your life? This 5km run has the added novelty of allowing participants to run through a shower of coloured powder. The event, a celebration of health and happiness, will
take place at Dubai Autodrome on December 14.

The idea is to raise awareness of health and fi tness. The Color Run attracts more than one million entrants in 100 countries across the world. The runners will be spurred on by pumping music and at the end there’s a special ‘color festival’ where everyone’s doused in yet more colour for some photos.

According to managing director Greg Sproule, the race is ‘geared up to people of all shapes and sizes and of any age.’ Entry costs Dhs140 and includes a gift pack, T-shirt, a sweatband and a colour pack. About Dhs4 will be donated to Just Giving for every entry and each participant will get to choose from one of 8,000 charities.
