Founded as a way to promote happiness and health, this five-kilometre-long run involves splashes of colour to distract you from the fact that you're, you know, exercising. All participants are asked to wear as much white as they can, and then embrace the colour pigment that's blasted at them at various points during the race.
This is sweaty exercise disguised as straight-up fun. With plenty of excitement at the beginning, a party at the end, and four colour zones to dance your way through — plus a bubble zone, a foam zone and a DJ zone — the fun never stops, and neither do your legs.
The Color Run now takes place in more than 35 countries worldwide, attracting six million runners across the globe. This year it'll run its Melbourne race on Sunday, November 25 at Flemington Racecourse, kicking off at 7am.
If you need more motivation, there'll also be free slurpees, a giant swing and a ball pit. Plus, if you'd like to do something for others with your run, you can raise money for the Starlight Children's Foundation.
