The Colour Run is the Happiest 5k on the Planet!
Held in Beijing International Garden Expo park
It is a unique paint race celebrating healthiness, happiness, individuality, and giving back to the community.
This was my first ever Colour Run and I believe there will be more in the future. We were the filmed, photographed and interviewed by several newsagents, such as CCTV.
It was truly an amazing experience despite the weather, there were several water stations as well but I will still recommend you to bring your own. The event wasnt as colourful as I expect it to be compared to other countries but I guess this is the first ever Colour Run in Asia, I would say they did a pretty good job. Majority of the people walked the race as well as it was too hot and it roughly took 1.5hrs of walking.
Tips for your next colour run:
Bring Wet Wipes: Clean yourself with wetwipes as soon as possible because some of the colour would stain the skin if you left it on for too long.
Clothes: I wore my gym clothes and the Colour Run Teeshirt and it can be cleaned easily in the washing machine. Cotton materials are harder to clean!
Shoes: My running shoes were white and some of the red stained them and it has become pink now, so don’t wear your favourite pair of shoes.
Bring a small bag with you so you can carry your water, valuables etc
Sunglasses or Goggles to protect your eyes.
Buy a waterproof case for your camera/phone or simply put it in a transparent ziplock bag so you can take photos without covering your phone with coloured powder
Most importantly, HAVE FUN!
Until Next Time
