The Color Run™, the single largest 5km event series in the world, will be returning to Port Elizabeth’s NMMU North Campus at 10:00 am on 17 May 2015. For the third year in succession, PE kicks off the South African national series with an estimated 5 000 participants. Registration for the original powder race is now open.
With no winners or official times, The Color Run celebrates healthiness, happiness, and individuality, bringing the community together to create a five-kilometre canvas of colour. Thousands of participants are doused from head to toe in different colours at each kilometre.
Participation in and buzz for The Color Run has exploded since its debut with over 125 000 “likes” on the SA Facebook page.
“We call The Color Run the ‘happiest 5k on the planet’ because our events bring together friends and family in a unique, healthy, and fun environment,” says Margeaux Swartz, national spokesperson for The Color Run. “Our only rules are that people wear white and prepare to be covered in colour at the finish!”
