If being covered in paint and running 5k sounds like your idea of fun, you’re in luck. One of the city’s most popular runs is back for another year of multi-coloured fun. The Colour Run’s Tropical World Tour is set to arrive in Dubai on November 12, and early bird tickets are on sale now.
This year’s tropical theme will take you through palm trees and arches, with music playing along the way. The island-style finish line will have a rainbow beach full of sand, drummers and dancing, so you can stay and celebrate your achievement after the race.
Since the first ever UAE Colour Run in 2013, over 34,000 people have taken part, so it’s always a hot ticket. Early bird tickets are currently available for AED140. For the first time there’s a deluxe pack at AED240, which includes VIP parking and tropical-themed merchandise – party sunglasses at the ready.
Dr. 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 one of the country’s most popular exercise events. It offers inspiration and motivation for first-time runners, the chance for seasoned athletes to inject some fun back into their work-out, and an exciting day out for families and friends.”
As well as being a fun event, it’s hoped that the run will kick-start a more active lifestyle for those taking part. Greg Sproule, Managing Director of IMG Middle East, said: “Over the past three years, we’ve seen The Color Run presented by Daman’s ActiveLife inspire more than 55,000 people in the UAE to kick-start a healthier lifestyle. It’s important for us to keep bringing new and engaging events such as ‘The Tropicolor World Tour’ to get even more of the community excited about exercising.”
Tickets are available at www.thecolorrun.ae and Adventure HQ stores in JBR, Times Square Centre and Galleria Mall in Dubai, and Yas Mall and Dalma Mall in Abu Dhabi. Color Runners can also purchase merchandise from Souq.ae and Adventure HQ stores.
