Colour Me Happy!

February 11, 2013 Life

The Happiest 5km on earth! That’s the slogan for the Colour Run which was held in Sydney for the first time today. If you’re not sure what that is, here’s a sneak peek on how it all ends:

It was a scary start, filled with such horrors as this sign:

Here we are at the start… a very different picture – a lot of clean white clothes you may notice.

So the Colour Run is a fun run event that involves running with heaps of other people along a 5km course.

The fun bit is when you run through colour stations where coloured powder is thrown all over you! Here I am emerging relatively unmarked from the yellow station:

Blue is where things got real!

It was so much fun! I haven’t run about giggling so much since I was a kid having summer water fights around the neighbourhood.

I got real colourful :-)

So did the ground!

At the end there was a big colour dance party – the music was pumping and people were jumping!

But the best part was every 15 minutes there was a countdown and coloured powder was thrown from everywhere and everyone! Yeaaah! Rainbow mosh pit!
