Is one of your New Year’s Resolutions to improve your fitness? If so, you need to know about The Color Run presented by Skittles. It’s got a reputation for being the happiest 5km race on the planet and we can say from experience that it’s a lot of fun!
The dates for this year’s races, which take place in different locations across the UK, has just been announced on the Color Run website. Tickets went on sale on 2 February and I’m sure they will sell out quickly so get in there quick! Look at how much fun you could have:
Taking its colour party on the road from June, The Color Run Presented by Skittles kicks off at London’s Wembley Park in June, followed by stops in Manchester, Glasgow, Birmingham and ending in Brighton in September. This year, they will be adding an all-new Tropicolor zone on course, where participants will be bathed in a tropical array of colours. Personally, I can’t wait to see London lit up by colour.
The concept of the event is simple; to start dressed in white, run 5km with your friends, family or colleagues and finish the day head-to-toe in kaleidoscopic colour, having incredible amounts of fun along the way.
Celebs like Pamela Anderson, Teri Hatcher and Jennifer Lopez all took part in running events last year and if we want to follow in their footsteps we have to start somewhere. You’ll find 5km is a manageable distance and time does fly when you’re having fun. With the mess and colour in this event, you’ll have more fun than you’ve had all year.
