I recently did The Color Run with my two older kids (ages 12 and 10) and it was SO MUCH FUN!
Yes, this was us, taking selfies at the starting line!
I have done the run before – two years ago with my girlfriends (I wrote about it in this post)… and I was surprised by how many kids and families were there. So I was keen to take my kids the next time it came back to our city.
The event isn’t really a RUN… it’s a jog.
A fun, 5km jog!
That suited me just fine.
Dotted along the 5km course are colour zones, where coloured powder is thrown at you while you run. There was a blue zone, yellow, orange, purple etc… and this year there was a new sparkle glitter zone and a new foam/snow zone!
While the event volunteers try to aim at your clothes, the colour and glitter goes everywhere, which is all part of the fun.
My boys had a LOT of fun!
They really enjoyed the messy nature of the event and getting completely splattered with colour.
I liked the free fresh fruit at the end, the music, the relaxed vibe and the crowd of happy people.
We hung around after the run, and loved watching the crowd of people throwing colour in the air.
We took some cool video and slow-motion video too.
We chilled out on the grass and enjoyed the sunshine.
We arranged some flatlays and the grass… and I am embarrassed to admit that my 10 year old’s flatlay was better than my flatlay haha!
Here’s our obligatory before and after photo.
It was seriously, so much fun!
We hope to do it again next year with more friends :)
