On Saturday, The Color Run presented by Daman’s Activelife returned to Dubai with another record-breaking turnout.
Celebrating its 5th year in the UAE, runners donned their most colorful outfits and ran, danced and skipped their way through the Happiest 5k on the Planet.
This year, Color Runners were invited to ‘Dream in Color’ and experience the all new Foam Zone, which proved to be a huge hit.
Elsewhere on the course, Color Runners were covered from head to toe in an array of brand new colors in more Color Zones than ever before along the 5k route.
An incredible day out for the entire family, friends and colleagues, Color Runners showed their aspirations on the brand new Dream Wall as well. The event culminated with the ultimate color party at the Finish Festival and the famous color throws!
Greg Sproule, Managing Director of IMG Middle East said: “We are thrilled with another huge turnout for the Color Run presented by Daman’s ActiveLife this year, marking our 5th year in the UAE.
