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 white t-shirts and 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 a party at the beginning, a party at the end, and four colour zones to dance your way through — 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 Sydney race on Sunday, October 7 at Cathy Freeman Park in Sydney Olympic Park, kicking off at 8.30am.
