the colour run 2013


Both Jacqueline and I have signed up for The Color Run [Singapore] 2013 that will be taking place this Saturday at Sentosa Island and we are crossing our fingers and praying for good weather so that the race can proceed smoothly. Despite the major race pack collection hiccup that took place at Scape yesterday, we are still excited about the race and we hope that there won’t be any more of such bad and last-minute planning by the organisers. Waiting 4.5 hours to collect a race pack is totally uncool and hopefully, the organisers can learn from yesterday’s episode and plan in advance.
In case you’re wondering what The Color Run is all about, check out the following video:

This is the first time that The Color Run is being organised in Singapore and it is a one of a kind experience that is less about speed and more about enjoying a color crazy day with friends and family members. The Color Run caters to participants of all different speeds, ages, shapes, and sizes; and we’re pretty sure that it will be the most enjoyable 5-kilometers, un-timed race that we have ever participated.

Thousands of participants will be doused from head to toe in different colors at each kilometre and the fun continues at the finish line with a gigantic “Color Festival”, where more colored powder are used to create happiness and lasting memories, not to mention the millions of vivid color combinations.

While The Color Run event is all about fun and positive energy, the 5-kilometers run also focuses on promoting healthy living. Over 60% of Color Runners are first-time 5-kilometers runners and the event is making headway on the growing national focus of improving health and wellness.

Personally, this will be my first time running a 5-kilometers race and I’m quite sure that after this experience, I probably would take part in a few more races to keep myself fit and healthy. The Color Run will be my stepping stone to many runs and speaking of which, I probably should get myself a new pair of running shoes as my old runs are rather worn out.

We’re so looking forward to The Color Run [Singapore] 2013 @ Sentosa Island this Saturday and do check out our Facebook Page or Instagram for the actual Race Day Photos! 🙂
