The Color Run™ Singapore: Bright Colours and Grins at The Happiest 5K on the Planet

Last weekend saw The Color Run™ adorning Sentosa Island with splashes of vivid colors and glistening glitter thanks to its new “shine” color zones. Staying true to its signature of being “The Happiest 5K on the Planet”, the event had 16,000 ‘Color Runners’ grinning and squealing in glee as they emerged coated in colored glitter powder.

This is the third consecutive year the 5 km rainbow tour went around Sentosa island. As with past years, the fun continued beyond the finish line as runners partied to music hits in a colored glitter extravaganza.

It is always great to see the excitement around The Color Run™ and have participants of all walks of life come together to have fun. We thank all participants for their support and displaying such enthusiasm.—Robbie Henchman, Senior Vice President, Head of IMG Asia Pacific

In the spirit of community giving, The Color Run™ donated $1 from every registration to the Coalition Against Bullying for Children and Youth (CABCY) this year. A voluntary organisation which aims to spread awareness about and fight various forms of bullying, CABCY had a fun treat when they too joined in the revelry on Sunday’s run.

We are very grateful to partner The Color Run™ and raise the awareness on the issue of bullying in our society. My team and I had so much fun over the weekend and we can’t wait to add color to the lives of our beneficiaries with this generous contribution.—Esther Ng, President and Founder, CABCY
