What is the inspiration behind The Color Run?

The Color Run is the first colour race of its kind and was inspired by several awesome events, including Disney’s World of Color, Colour Parties, Mud Runs, and festivals throughout the world such as Holi. We wanted to create a less stressful and untimed running environment that is more about health and happiness! We hope that The Color Run can act as a catalyst to inspire continual healthy living.

Do I need to be Mo Farah to do this?

Oh my goodness, NO. There are plenty of other great 5k runs out there to test speed and performance. This run is all about a colour crazy day out with friends and family. You can run, walk, jog, skip, dance or cartwheel it if you wish!

Is The Color Run timed?

‘The Happiest 5k On The Planet’ is not a timed event. Even Mr. Farah would take his time out there to maximise the colourful fun! We suggest self-timing for anyone desiring a finish time.

Is the course wheel-chair friendly?

The course are accessible, although the organisers suggest an all-terrain wheelchair or to bring a friend along who will be able to help you through more tricky parts of the course.
