No-Pressure Fun at Color Manila Glitter Run

Last Sunday I crossed the finish line looking like a cross between a Na’vi from “Avatar” and a Smurf, cracking open a full-toothed smile for the first time over the 10 kilometers. No, this wasn’t a Halloween costume run, but the second edition of the Color Manila Glitter Run.

Last Chance to Register for Color Manila Glitter Run on October 22

When it comes to fun, pressure-free runs, I always turn to Color Manila’s roster of events. Their upcoming CM Glitter Run this Sunday, October 22 at the SM Mall of Asia Grounds is bound to be another good one featuring their latest spin on the fun run: a glitter station!

With 3K, 5K, and 10K untimed distances, runners will go through a glitter shower spree as well as a foam station on top of the usual color stations that are the signature for Color Manila runs. Post-run, don’t go home just yet because the party is just getting started with the Color Festival, an extravaganza of color powder and music.

Color Manila VP Justine Cordero says, “Just when you think you’ve seen and experienced it all, CM Glitter Run comes in and combines everything that you’ll ever love to have in a fun run. Glitter, foam, color powders, retro music, and more!”Β  Continue reading “Last Chance to Register for Color Manila Glitter Run on October 22”
