For a generation that spends majority of its waking hours glued to the glare of a smartphone or the glow of a computer screen, we sure spend a hell lotta time running. We run after the bus, we run to zip into the train before that gate closes, and we run after the bus… well, you get the idea.
But it’s not often that we get to run with mounds of colour powder thrown at us from all four directions.
The Color Run (think Holi meets running), also branded as the Happiest 5k on the planet originated in the United States in 2012 as an untimed paint race. It aims to spread an athletic experience beyond the ol’ make-it-to-the-finish-line-in-the-quickest-time routine. Top that with coloured powder stations at every 1km, and you pretty much have an outdoor party that can be enjoyed by all! 😀
