Jozi Get Ready For The Color Run 2019!

The “happiest 5km on the planet” is back! Come through to the Color Run 2019 at Roosevelt High School in Emmerentia on Sunday, 8 September 2019. 

What Is It?

The Joburg leg of the 5km Color Run is back this September! Pioneered in 2011, The Color Run has seen about 6 million runners worldwide participate, from over 35 different countries. As the only official 5km color event in Joburg, The Color Run 2019 looks to be even bigger and better than before. Hosted near Emmerentia Dam, this event is a spring-time must for runners of all abilities. So, grab your running shoes, tutus and rainbow attire, because Joburg is about to get a whole lot more colourful.

The Color Run 2019 is not only about having a good time. Previous events raised R500 000 for local causes and educational based initiatives. This year, the organisers are calling for all runners to help raise funds for some amazing charities. Find out more about these initiatives here.

Participants will receive a welcome kit with their ticket on the day. The kit includes:

  • Official runners t-shirt
  • An awesome headband to save that sweaty head vibe
  • Your very own bag of Color Run powder to go wild with at the festival zone
  • Temporary happy tattoo
  • Race number (and pins)
  • Entry to The Finish Festival and more!

So, get your tickets to the Color Run 2019, or miss out on a day of super fun and fitness in the spring sunshine.
