The Colour Run is back, and this time, it will be covering Hermanus in its signature powdered rainbow. We all know how easy is it to over eat and get lazy at that big Christmas lunch, so why not combat that with a little exercise by joining the Colour Run? You get to work off that festive season bulge, spend some time outside with great people and most importantly, throw coloured powder at everyone there. Running has never been this fun.
Dubbed the ‘happiest 5k on the planet’, it is difficult not to smile when running against the beautiful backdrop of Hermanus. The sun, sea and energy creates just the right combination to make this Summer Holiday Tour perfect. The run starts at 3 pm. People will start the run in batches, with each batch beginning three minutes apart from each other. The whole run takes around one to two hours to complete. Heart FM will there to play some awesome music to help pump you up.
Running is just the start of all the fun. There is a festival zone to keep the vibe going after the run. There you can enjoy music from DJs and local acts, a best-dressed competition, food and drinks, and in case you did not get properly covered in colour, there will be more coloured powder to play with.
If you are interested in doing some good while participating, you can register a school or charity to raise money for. There is a special Fun Raiser programme, that gives you a unique code for all fundraising done at the run. If you are interested in giving back, you can contact the Colour Run on [email protected].
In keeping with the holiday spirit, each runner will receive a race pack filled with amazing goodies. You get a 2015 edition race t-shirt, a headband, temporary tattoos, a bag of colour powder and your race number with pins. You will also receive a R200 Takealot and R200 Superbalist voucher, and your ticket includes entry to the festival zone. There are so many reasons to join the Colour Run. If you can’t run, then feel free to walk; just be sure not to miss out on any of the fun!
We’ve got five double tickets (10 tickets in total) to give away to the Hermanus Colour Run, and all you need to do to enter is fill out the following online form. Winners will be contacted via email or phone and our standard competition Terms and Conditions apply.
