I only heard about The Color Run (yes, it’s obviously spelt colour but we will let our American friends off this time – it’s all for a good cause after all) last week after seeing some amazing images on instagram of runner being doused in powder paints and smiling their faces off. Also known as the Happiest 5k on the Planet, I found the event only started last year and is snowballing so fast that there is now over 1 million participants registered for 2013. The website claims The Color Run is all about promoting fitness and well-being, and seeing as there are no winners unlike other marathons and runs, everyone can join in without fear of being left behind.
With the only two rules being A) wear white, and B) end up covered in colour, this seems like one fun run. The only snag? It is yet to take place in the UK. However, if you too want to take part and can’t afford the flight over to America or Oz, there is already a Facebook petition to bring the The Color (or maybe it will be COLOUR) Run to our shores so get ‘Liking’!
