This was my first experience of the Color Run. I was warned by colleagues to make sure that all my equipment was covered as you cannot escape the colored powder no matter how hard you try. I was really surprised to see just how covered the racers got with powder. They were caked in all sorts of colors.
The run was held at Durban North College and promised to be “The Happiest 5K on the Planet”. The mood was festive from the very start and it stayed like that throughout the event. I managed to capture some of the action and enjoyed watching everyone else getting plastered with powder. I did laugh on the way home when I was stopped at a traffic light and glanced at the car next to me and saw a car full of rainbow people sitting on plastic packets that covered their seats. I can only imagine how dirty most people’s cars were that did not think of that. Here are some pics from the day which was sponsored mainly by Capitec Bank, who donated R10 from each ticket sold to their various charity initiatives, and hosted so eloquently and enthusiastically by Damon Beard from East Coast Radio.
