The Color Run is months away, but lovers of the ‘Happiest 5k on the Planet’ can take advantage of the special early bird summer package to ensure a colourful fall.
The Shine Tour arrives to the Dubai Autodrome later this year on November 21, with a limited number of early bird entries now on sale. If you’ve never experienced the phenomenon, here’s your chance to see what all the fuss is about. The Color Run isn’t a race, but an un-timed fun run designed to be an active, moving party on the track.
Since The Color Run kicked off in Dubai in 2013, the event has steadily grown and now has a massive following in the community. More than 12,000 Color Runners, ranging from ages one to 91, showed out in 2014 and thousands are once again expected this year.
The 2015 edition will shower runners in a flurry of confetti at the finish line after being drowned in various vibrant coloured powders across the course’s five colour stations. An addition to this year’s Finish Festival will see crowds splashed with fluorescent colour and glitter.

Michael Bitzer, chief executive officer at Daman, presenting partner of the event, said: “The Color Run presented by Daman’s ActiveLife has proven to be a fantastic way to excite people about getting fit and active, and we are already beginning to see the results across the UAE with more people signing up each year.
“Most importantly, it is a great way of introducing families to a healthier lifestyle by exposing them to an active experience which they associate with fitness and fun. Hopefully they will remember it for many years to come.”
The early bird entry costs Dh140 and includes a gift pack, newly-designed t-shirt, sweatband and colour pack. From each registration fee, $1 (Dh3.67) will be donated to Friends of Cancer Patients charity through the Just Giving platform.
Color Runners can sign up to reserve their spot by visiting www.thecolorrun.ae. Entries are limited, so don’t wait until it’s too late. Pump up your excitement for The Color Run and gather your friends and family to take part in what promises to be an unforgettable experience this fall.
