The Colour Run

Run along Cape Town’s Promenade and be part of a colour explosion on this fun 5km race that is more about becoming a walking (running) art piece than winning a prize. The Colour Run is an event that is meant to bring joy to participants and spectators as well as encourage movement and fitness. Runners dressed in white will be doused with brightly coloured powder along the way and end up resembling Picasso’s paint board once crossing the finishing line. If fun, colour, and some exercise are your thing then this event will be right up your alley.
