Replace your winter layers with your Hawaiian shirt and sunnies!
The Color Run presented by Sportsgirl now the world’s single largest event series on the planet, is returning to Sydney and inviting you to take a 5k holiday on Sunday, 21 August with the Tropicolor World Tour.
Celebrating all things tropical, the latest series of The Color Run is full of more music and colour than ever, bringing summer back to people of all ages, with participants set to experience the all-new Tropicolor World Tour, enjoying a tropical array of colours and island scents with family and friends as they pass through a paradise of palm trees and island-style music.
At the famous Finish Festival, participants will celebrate summer at Rainbow Beach – an interactive island that will come to life with music, dancing, exciting photo opportunities and what the event has become so well-known for – its colour throws!
For the very first time, LG are sponsoring the foam zone – a sea of bubbles which is one of the most Instagram-worthy zones on the course – and creating a giant dunk tank in the shape of a washing machine for those wanting to wash the colour off in a dramatic fashion!
Each Color Runner will also receive a limited-edition Tropicolor race shirt, finisher’s medal on a floral-€printed ribbon, embroidered headband, and fun temporary tattoos. The Color Run Race Director Evan Calvert said the Tropicolor World Tour will be the most memorable event yet, celebrating everything The Color Run is famous for, with a tropical twist.
“It doesn’t matter if it’s your first experience with The Color Run or if you’ve joined us before, the Tropicolor World Tour will be the most unforgettable 5k of your life,” said Calvert. “The Color Run is a vehicle for inspiration and we are passionate about encouraging people to celebrate the little things that make your day great – even if it is running 5k or participating in a fun run for the very first time. The Tropicolor World Tour is about providing people with an experience where they can have fun and make memories with family and friends as if they are on a tropical holiday.”
Following Sydney, the next stop on The Color Run Tropicolor World Tour is Adelaide on Sunday, 11 September 2016.
