What to bring with you

Come wearing your Color Run kit provided in your race bag, plus anything else you fancy to make yourself even more Color Run ready. Rumour has it that tutu’s, wigs and fairy wings make you run even faster…
Capitec will be providing an ATM at the festival zone, but you might want to bring some extra cash for official Color Run merchandise, extra powder sachets and of course something to eat and drink.
Wear sunglasses to protect your eyes from all the colorful powder. If you don’t have any, we have some funky Color Run ones for sale at the race pack pick-up or at the festival zone.

ABOUT THE COLOR RUN:

The Color Run is a feel-good, happy, colourful event. “Color Runners” of all shapes and sizes happily go from wearing pristine white clothing, to being covered in prismatic colour. At each kilometre mark, a different colour of powder fills the air and covers the participants, creating an ever-increasing spectrum of colour and beauty. At the finish line, the colour festival kicks off and the air is filled with millions of vivid colour combinations as participants get in on the colour throwing fun as well. For more information, go to www.thecolorrun.co.za or follow us on Facebook.
