The Color Run is 5K of running madness in the US and great news for the UK it is on it’s way over here!!
This unique paint race ”The Color Run’ is known also as the happiest 5K on the planet and celebrates healthiness, happiness, individuality and giving back to your community.
This untimed race is not how fast you can run or what time you can do your mile in, but more about having fun and the time of your life.
This is a fantastic 5K run in which thousands of participants are drenched from head to toe in different colours at every kilometer , ending at the finishing line with an amazing “Color Festival” using even more coloured powder, including millions of vivid colour combinations, giving you the best post 5K party on the planet!
Since its debut in January 2012 in the US the Color Run has gone from 50 events and 600,000 participants in the US to over 100 events and over a million people taking part for 2013 all over the world.
Organisers focus on giving back to the community by choosing a charity for each city they visit, so far they have raised donations for over 60 local and national charities.
The Color Run caters for everyone from 2 years to 80 year olds, from beginners to professional athletes.
Some runners participate to remember loved ones who have passed away or to celebrate loved ones who are still with us or fighting diseases.
In the wake the Boston Marathon bombings what we need is a reminder of the love that the world has to offer. The Color Run events are all about love and since it started there have been approximately 10 marriage proposals and one wedding!
The Color Run have been using Facebook to advertise their Color Run UK, but as yet they are just teasing us!
Until they receive 500 shares, they won’t be releasing any dates….SO come on guys what you waiting for? Go to Facebook and get sharing.
As soon as the UK events are listed BritEvents will let everyone know of the towns and cities where you can join the colourful party!!
