This year the only event in New Zealand, the Kiwi’s know how to start a party! Just under 7,000 runners flocked to the QBE Stadium just north of the City on the mild Sunday morning with their dancing shoes ready!
Starting off with some stretching and Zumba, as per usual, all colour maniacs made their way to the start chute for the 8am start signal. On the scenic course amongst green fields they embarked on a purple wet zone, 4 colour zones, a pink ‘shine’ zone (due to the event being part of the TCR Shine Tour), a water zone and a foam zone before entering the colourful finish line where they collected their water and, most importantly, their free colour packet! The crowd could not wait to put their colour packets to good use and the finish festival completed the fun filled morning in style.
A unique American concept by origin, The Color Run (TCR) is focused on fun instead of performance. It’s all about music, colour and madness as runners make their way through the 5km run, being bombarded with a different colour powder every kilometre to finish into an even bigger colour mania called the Finish Festival. Here, the runners get a chance to drench themselves, and everyone else, in even more colour by throwing their own colour packets around, all the while dancing and singing along to the latest tunes being played on the main stage by a DJ.
