COLOR MANILA RUN Year 5: A Kaleidoscope Comes to Life

The Color Manila Run jump-started the 1st quarter of 2017 with a vibrant event last January 8, at the SM Mall of Asia Grounds. Now on its 5th year, thousands of registered runners were pelted with colored powder throughout the race route. The result? A color-stained shirt, tons of artsy photos, unlimited smiles, and epic memories that will last a lifetime.

Known as the most anticipated non-competitive run in the Philippines, the Color Manila Run maintains its goal to advocate a healthy and active lifestyle by adding fun to the running sport that Filipinos will surely enjoy. “I really felt the enjoyment of everybody in the event. In spite of the exhaustion, you can see the joy in their faces. It was a clear sign that Color Manila Run was successful in showing us that running can be a fun thing to do,” Dannika Rodriguez, a consultant at Misys Philippines, recounts her experience.

Runners from various categories – 3K, 5K, 10K, and 21K, - ran through the race courses where different color stations and well-propped crews await them. “It was the perfect event to start my year." says Milo Dagami, a technical support agent at Telstra Company who just finished a 10KM distance, "The crowd (race crew) at the color stations was very nice and friendly to me. It was awesome!”  Unlike other events in which most runners go home after running, most runners stay in the race village after completing in their respective categories. The programs prepared by organizers every year are exciting and fun as the race route itself.

The highlight of the post-run programs was the Color Festival; a post-run party in which participating runners simultaneously released the colored powders in the air and danced to the beat. “I had so much fun with other runners, especially during the Color festival at the race village,” shares Brian Tan, a software quality engineer. “I guess the best part about the race was being a part of it. Unlike usual competitive races, I didn’t have to worry about my personal record. I had a good time during and after running. It was a wonderful experience all throughout.”

Aside from the creative theme of the event, the Color Manila Run boasts a lot of freebies that gave participants a bang for their bucks. These included race singlets, dri-fit shirts, unique finisher medals and shirts, sunglasses, multi-way headwear, drawstring bags, pillows, hydrations, and even color packets to be used for the color festival! “The finisher items were a big bonus. I certainly love this years’ big and pretty medal.” Brian added.

The Color Manila Run tours in different parts of the country every year.  With different themes such as the Black Light Run, Costume run, Glitter Run, and others, the organizers never failed to bring something fun and memorable that runners of all ages will definitely enjoy all year round.  

Congratulations, Color Manila Run!
