If the new year has you dreaming of a vacation, how about visiting paradise with thousands of friends? I’m excited to announce that The Color Run™ will return to Yas Marina Circuit on 25 March – with early bird tickets now on sale.
Adding a Tropical twist to The Happiest 5k on the Planet™, The Color Run™ presented by Daman’s ActiveLife is set to turn the city into an island-style paradise, bringing the community together like never before.
This will be my first time to join but I’m excited and I hope you are too. According to Greg Sproule, Managing Director of IMG Middle East, “Only The Color Run™ can transform a 5k run into a 5k vacation and we are excited to welcome both new and returning Color Runners to the Abu Dhabi leg of the The Color Run™ Tropicolor World Tour on 25 March.”
I’ve seen the previous editions of the color run and this year, they are combining even more color, happiness and music than ever before. Existing runners and new ones like me will experience an all-new Tropicolor Zone on course, where they will be bathed in a bright array of colors and sweet scents as they make their way through the shade of palm trees, arches and island-style music.
This year also sees the introduction of Rainbow Beach, where Color Runners will take part in the epic Finish Festival, filled with dancing, unique photo opportunities, awesome sponsor activations and plenty of color throws!
All runners will receive a limited-edition Race Pack with a Tropicolor T-Shirt, an embroidered headband, fun temporary tattoos and a tropical flower lei. Those opting for Deluxe tickets will receive the aforementioned goodies plus VIP parking, a tutu, party sunglasses, socks and a wristband for the ultimate Tropicolor look!
The Color Run™ presented by Daman’s ActiveLife is open to everyone regardless of experience, and is guaranteed to be your most memorable 5k — whether it’s your first race, or if you’ve been joining in the fun for years.
Since its inception in 2012, The Color Run has become a global phenomenon, continuing to innovate the 5k paint race genre each year. The Tropicolor World Tour marks the fifth anniversary of The Color Run, which has made stops all around the globe, including Dubai and Doha. 2017 marks the fourth edition of The Color Run™ at the Yas Marina Circuit in Abu Dhabi, and is the 11th edition in the Middle East.
To register, head to www.thecolorrun.ae or Adventure HQ stores in Abu Dhabi at Dalma Mall or Yas Mall, and Times Square Center, JBR and The Galleria Mall in Dubai. Early bird tickets are available now for a limited time!
