Color Run '18 registration is now open

Who hasn't wanted to do a 5k while having paint lobbed at 'em?

The Color Run
Dig out your white clothing and find some trainers that you don't mind getting covered in paint – it's time to register for the Color Run! Wannabe technicolour-dreamboats should sign up ASAP though, as registration opens today and the event tends to sell out in a matter of days.


So, for the uninitiated, what is a Color Run? Basically, it's a 5km fun-run where participants have different colours chucked at 'em at special stations at every kilometre, so by the time that you've finished you look less like a jogger and more like a rejected Jackson Pollock piece.

The good folks who run the event claim that it's 'the happiest 5k on the planet' and we'd be inclined to agree. There's also a Foam Zone this year, where you can frolic in funky bubbles. Let's bubble!


This year's event is subtitled 'The Hero Tour', and event organisers reckon it's more of a party than a race, with no times being recorded and a Finish Festival (read: paint-chuck-a-thon) held at the end of the course. It's being held on 9 June in Beijing Garden Expo Park and costs either 228RMB or 288RMB, depending on what package of goodies you spring for.


Sounds like something you'd be interested in? Sign up for the Color Run here.
