Not the first time it’s been dreadfully hot at this venue – Canberra seems to have a thing for hot, sticky weather but this weekend topped it all with our crew battling up to 41 degree heats!
Nevertheless, the show must go on and the picturesque course followed the same route as it always has along Lake Burley and tracked around Commonwealth Park, down on Parkes Way before turning around at Kings Park. Around 5,000 runners departed on the course at 8am consisting of various colour, foam and water zones providing ample entertainment along the route, and the Finish Festival was as usual the biggest party in Canberra.
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.
