The Color Run

Trick yourself into exercising by hurling yourself through explosions of colour.

Fun runs are often not that fun. Sure, they have events and often bars at the finish line, and a whole lot of people pleased with themselves. But at the end of the day, it's just a run. Enter The Color Run. Founded as a way to promote happiness and health, this 5km run involves a serious amount of paint to distract you from the fact that you're furiously exercising. The rules are simple. One: everyone is welcome; walkers, athletes and everything in between. Two: wear white. Three: get covered in different coloured paints thrown at you along the way and return to the finish line a wonderfully Instagrammable mismatch of colours.

This is sweaty, sweaty exercise dressed up as straight-up fun. There'll be a party at the beginning, one at the end and four colour zones to hurl yourself through. This year it will be a Grand Prix edition, taking place around the Albert Park lake. And to top off the good vibes, The Color Run gives back to charity, with over $1 million going to selected causes to date.

Don a white t-shirt, and get the sneakers ready. It’s Colour Run time.
