Adelaide fans of the Color Run will be thrilled to know that the event is finally touching down at the Victoria Park Racecourse on 14 September 2014 after wrapping up in Sydney. Whether you're new to the event or planning to join again, the Color Run is presently the only running event of its kind in Australia that marries fun and fitness with lots of powdered make up.
Originally from the US, the Color Run is now the single largest running event series around the world with events in 27 countries including Belgium, Japan, Netherlands, China, Singapore and Brasil. Since January 2012, it has expanded to over 200 cities including Shanghai, Amsterdam, Taipei, Dubai, Jakarta and Munich.
The Swisse Color Run offers exercise, laughter, partying and camaraderie all in one package. Also referred to as the 'Happiest 5k Run on the Planet', the event is a fun day out with family and friends. Here are some quick facts about the run:
There are lots of powdered make-up made from 100% natural, food dyed, food grade cornstarch. You will be covered with pink, orange, blue and yellow as you pass through 4 colour zones. Then there's the colour throw at the finish line. Make sure you're dressed in whites to absorb all the colour.
Gather 20 minutes with your fellow runners before the race starts at 9am. Every 3 to 6 minutes, a 1000 people will join the run to get coloured.
