A few weeks ago I was invited to take part in the ColorRun. The Color Run is a huge 5k event that takes place all over the uk. This is how the Color run describes it's self
"The Color Run is a five-kilometre, un-timed race in which thousands of participants are doused from head to toe in different colours at each kilometre. The fun continues at the finish line with a gigantic “Color Festival,” using more coloured powder to create happiness and lasting memories, not to mention millions of vivid colour combinations."
I did the run in Manchester at the Etihad stadium. I arrived an hour before the start time of 11am.I had realised that one of my best mates was also doing the run so it was a good opportunity to catch up with him, plus it's always more fun to to things like this with a friend. The atmosphere was great, as was the weather! The event had stalls and music and everyone was having a good time. We set off in the 2nd bout of runners. We paced are selves switching between running and walking and really enjoyed running through the clouds of colour. We made it round in less that 40 min which, may not seem that good to some people it was very good in my books!
The run was totally suitable for all ages and abilities, I saw people racing to the finish line, some people leisurely walking and everything in between.
It's defiantly something I'd love to do again - even if I did ache the day after!
A huge thank you to LV for inviting me to take part.
