The Color Run… the happiest 5k on the planet!

A couple of weekends ago, some friends and I headed over to Tokyo Bay near Disneyland to participate in this year’s The Color Run Tokyo. We joined last year too and it was so fun that couldn’t resist going again! The Color Run has spread like wildfire around the world, with something like over 50 countries now holding their own events.

Basically, it is a 5km fun run, where at every 1km mark, you run through a coloured powder war zone! At the start line, everyone is wearing their pristine white T-shirts. But it doesn’t stay clean for long. As you run through the 1km mark, orange powder hits you from every angle, then at 2km it’s blue, then yellow, and finally pink. As you cross the finish line, you’re looking something like a rainbow from a Mardi Gras parade or a festival goer at Holi in India. The main idea is just to be happy and have fun! At the finish line, there’s an outdoor party with a live DJ – the best part, in my opinion!

Thank you to Jen at the Daily Post for the Weekly Photo Challenge theme: Motion. Here are a few images which I hope capture the action and excitement of the event!
