I have wanted to do a color run for so so long! If you have never heard of it, the race is a fun 5k that you start by wearing white and then run through a different colour of chalk paint at each km! I should mention that it originated in the US, hence the color vs the correct spelling colour (I know you were worried for a sec there!).
The race had tons of entries and was very well organized. I picked up my race pack the afternoon before. I got a white t-shirt and headband, my number and tattoos and stickers and….. a rain poncho?(ya not quite sure about that one).
The best part of the whole thing is the post-race dance party. They hand out packets of coloured powder and everyone throws them in the air and then you really get coated!!
It was a fun day but not a race really. If I did it again I would go with a big group and take lots of pics and walk. I did run, but very slowly! It was so hard to dodge most of the people walking and 3km of the 5km route was on a turf racecourse with really deep grass and it was impossible to go fast. It was like running on a giant sponge! My final time was 27:46. If you are looking for a fun day out this is the race for you! The photo ops were endless.
