There’s only one week to go until Color Manila’s first Blacklight Run this year commences on May 27, 2017 at Filinvest City, Alabang. But that’s only the first leg of the tour, with two more races confirmed: Bacolod City on June 3 and Davao City on August 12.
It’s time to put some fun back into your run! A few weeks ago I had a little foretaste of what awaits runners at the Color Manila Blacklight Run on May 28 at Filinvest City, Alabang.
The Color Manila Run series is wildly popular especially for those looking for a different, pressure-free experience in fun runs, and the Blacklight Run continues to push the envelope in fun run events. It’s too bad I’ll be out of the country then, but here are some reasons why you should sign up for the Color Manila Blacklight Run. Continue reading “Color Manila Blacklight Run on May 28”
Hi readers! Our friends from Color Manila have just announced their latest run events for the first quarter of 2016.
The Color Manila Run Carnival Tour happens on February 21 at the Clark Parade Grounds. The party heads south to Davao City for the CM Blacklight Edition Night Run on February 27 at the SM Lanang Premier. Finally, Color Manila heads back to Manila for the Watsons Color Manila Challenge on March 6 at the SM Mall of Asia.
Now, who wants to win some free kits? Color Manila has generously given me two free registration codes per race, so I’ve decided to run a giveaway! Just sign up below for your chance to win a race kit.
By the way, please like this photo below as well, although it’s not required to enter this giveaway. ;)
I will be drawing the six winners randomly by Tuesday and will announce them over Facebook and Twitter. I’ll email the winners their registration codes as well, so don’t forget to check your inboxes!
I have to say each race is pretty swaggalicious, with awesome singlets and finisher medals plus the standard Color Manila sunnies. Read on for more information about each race. Continue reading “Color Manila Run Events 2016 Announced”
It’s the stuff my nightmares are made of: running through a thick mist and suddenly a shrieking horde bursts through…
Except this was the happiest apocalypse of color I’ve ever been in!
After staging editions in other cities across the country, Color Manila Run is coming home to where it all began — to Bonifacio Global City!
This is Color Manila Run’s 3rd anniversary and it happens on January 4, 2015. Yes, it’s yet again the first run on the calendar. I am so happy so many people are discovering (or rediscovering) the joys of a fun run at one of their events!
There are 3K, 5K, and 10K distance categories — but again since this is a non-timed event, feel free to take as little or as much time as you want on that color-covered course! Every kit includes a race bib, a Color Manila shirt, and foldable limited edition Color Manila sunglasses.
On event day, you’ll receive a finisher’s medal and a color packet so you can participate in the Color Festival.
This was last January’s color festival:

I’ve always supported Color Manila events because they capture people who wouldn’t normally find themselves on the starting line of a run. As the runners I know have matured into hardcore marathoners, ultrarunners, and triathletes, it’s important to remember the simple magic of running when we were newbies: arriving with friends, snapping photos while running at the so-called “picture pace”, with nobody constantly asking how fast you went or if you won, just that you were out there doing something healthy for yourself for a change.
With the success of Color Manila Run and Color Manila Nite Run in Manila and provincial legs, of course the organizers Proactive wanted to take it up a notch. The Color Manila Nite Run on August 30 at Filinvest City, Alabang will feature glow paint and black light on the course, which will add a new dimension to the experience.
Check out some video from the first Color Manila Nite Run last year:
Even during the first Color Manila Nite Run, people were already looking for glow paint, but the organizers were hesitant due to safety concerns. Would it be OK to put on skin or splashed into people’s eyes or mouths? Proactive has partnered with Raveolution, which imports the glow paint from the UK and has already used the product in a major dance party with much success. Raveolution will also provide the post-race music and entertainment, so it’s going to be a night to remember and enjoy with your friends.
Registration is ongoing at www.colormanilanite.com. For a flate rate of P850, run 3K, 5K, or 10K and receive a Color Manila Nite Run Glow Paint Edition singlet, glow sticks and glow glasses, race bib, and guaranteed finisher’s medal. (This is a non-timed event, so take your time on the course and really party!) Race kit claiming and expo is on August 28, 29, and 30 at the Filinvest Tent in Alabang.

When I got to Bonifacio Global City for Color Manila Run 2014, I didn’t know how I was going to run this fun run. Would I just have fun and play at the color stations, get some cute photos taken? Would I go into serious racer mode and just blast through the course?
And then I realized, why can’t I have it both ways? I can have fun and run fast. I actually have a lot more fun going fast than taking my time. So that was settled, and I lined up at the starting line with some old friends and new preparing to get messy at the most colorful run of 2014. Continue reading “Color Manila Run 2014”
