The Color Run cares about the community and makes a conscious effort to ensure that the region only benefits from the carnival coming to town. The Color Run has also committed to leaving Cape Town cleane. In fact, over the past five years, The Color Run has perfected the art of the dry clean up. Every drop counts and not a drop is wasted.
The event will also be minimising mess and mitigating the need for water-based cleaning through massive PVC sheeting, big vacuum cleaners, and muscles – meaning more jobs on the day for the region. The organisers are also collecting all the very colourful race tees after the event and distributing them to the needy.
The Color Run is the world’s largest untimed running series. It was founded in 2011 with the mission of bringing people together to make the world a happier, healthier place. Dubbed The Happiest 5K on the Planet, The Color Run is less about how fast you run it, and more about having the time of your life. The Color Run has now been experienced by over 6 million runners in more than 40 countries around the world.
Participants begin the event in their white branded T-shirts, completing it in a head-to-toe colour extravaganza!
This year, The Carnival Tour theme brings with it stilt walkers, balloon shapers, music, good-natured clowning around, and colour, colour, colour.
