Ready, set, go! It’s your last chance to sign up for The Color Run…


Sponsored: A kaleidoscope of coloured paints, a foam zone and even a super zone? This family-friendly fun run is an unmissable event…

Dubbed the ‘happiest 5km on the planet’, The Color Run presented by Daman is returning to Dubai Autodrome on Saturday November 10. That means you’ve only got another few days to get involved, and prices are set to increase as the event gets closer.

New to The Color Run? Let us fill you in.

Now in its sixth year, the un-timed, family friendly fun run sees thousands of participants dress up in white and head to the starting line one early Saturday morning.

From there, you can run, walk, hop, skip or dance your way round the 5km track, getting doused from head to toe in different coloured paints.

But it’s not just paint, color runners will also face a Foam Zone, where they’ll to covered in (you might have guest it), an endless stream of foam.

This year’s theme is the ‘Hero Tour’, which also means there’s some new elements added. As well as a superhero-themed participant kit, there will be a new ‘Super Zone’, where race-goers will be able to find their inner hero, and an ‘Honor Photo Zone’, on hand to snap the perfect shot of your race. Perfect for your new profile pic…

Once you cross the finish line, be sure to, get your hands on a medal, which will be given out for the first time this year. Then, head to the super-charged Finish Festival, where DJs and live music will be on hand to keep the party going.

Doors open from 7am, with the first set of runners setting off at 8.30am.
