Grab your whitest kit because the year’s most colourful race returns.
The Dubai Autodrome once again plays host to the annual Color Run on November 21, hailed as the ‘happiest 5k on the planet.’
Run, walk or skip through the family-friendly course while volunteers throw clouds of powder paint on you at five multi-coloured paint stations. The race culminates in an outdoor paint rave and everyone ends up looking like a nursery school painting.
Last year’s events in Dubai and Abu Dhabi were part of more than 100 around the world, participated in by more than a million people, all of whom start wearing all white and finish it splatted like a rainbow, without a sad face in sight.
This year, runners can also look forward to a brand new finale at the end of the 5k course where a flurry of confetti and glitter will shower overs runners as they reach the finish line.
Since its arrival in Dubai in 2013, The Color Run has sky rocketed in popularity with more than 12,000 euphoric color runners ranging from ages 1 to 91 taking part in the 2014 event.
Aspiring color runners can sign up for early bird entries this summer from Thursday June 4 at thecolorrun.ae. Early bird entries cost Dhs140 and include a gift pack, newly designed, an event t-shirt, sweatband and colour pack.
