The Color Run is coming to Saudi Arabia for the very first time, during this season of Sharqiah, that is featuring more than 80 Events in the Eastern Province.
The countdown begins now, as it is happening next Saturday on the 23rd of March, so mark your calendars for this is an event you don’t want to miss!
The Color Run is known to be the happiest 5K on the planet, and is one of the most entertaining events ever. As runners, who start their journey in white, get doused with colors at every 1-KM checkpoint.
The race first kicked off in 2012, and since its launch, it has witnessed the participation of more than 7 million participants in 40 countries, and thus donating more than $5 million to charities.
So not only is it a fun run, but also a charitable one!
The event is organized in the light of the GEA’s efforts to attract top entertainment offerings to the Kingdom, “The Happiest 5k on the Planet” will make its mark on the Kingdom as part of this year’s worldwide “Color Run Hero Tour,” and 15,000 participants are expected in each city.
What is even nicer about the race, is that it’s not competitive at all, so all you get to do is create unforgettable memories while still making your community some charity work.
It serves as a celebration for health, individuality and happiness.
The GEA is showing support to the event by its continued efforts in enriching the lifestyle of residents in line with the Kingdom’s Vision 2030 reform plan and the Quality of Life Program 2020.
The Color Run was hosted in the UAE twice in 2018, and massive crowds attended the events to take part or cheer for the runners.
The theme of this year is celebrating the hero within you, the hero that makes everything possible. And the fun doesn’t end at the finish line, but continue with huge celebrations that include music, photo ops, activity booths, vendors, and more massive color throws.
“We are thrilled to be bringing The Color Run to Saudi Arabia. Its vibrancy matches the aims of the GEA and the Quality of Life Program 2020 objective to support and create new options that boost participation across cultural, entertainment and sports activities,” said the GEA’s Chief Operating Officer Sultan Al-Faqir.
“The Color Run, being held in our three biggest cities, will provide an exciting opportunity for thousands of families to engage in a healthy activity that combines fun, exercise and charitable giving.”
