Color Manila Paradise Run on 7 January 2018

I’ve joined very few races this year, so each of them stands out quite strongly in my memory — especially the colorful and happy ones run by Color Manila! So I’m already thinking of how to start my 2018 off with a bang, and the Color Manila Paradise Run on January 7, 2018 at the Mall of Asia Grounds sounds like a good one to go with.

The Color Manila Paradise Run includes 3K, 5K, 10K, and 21K distances held within a “paradise-themed” course with color stations, palm trees, garlands, and hammocks. As always, the run will be capped by the CM Color Festival with great music and a grand explosion of color powder!

Last year’s Color Manila Run kick-off was record-breaking and sold-out with 12,000 participants. The event got international recognition and was a Finalist at the Asia Sports Industry Awards in Bangkok, Thailand, for both the Mass Participation category and the Best Integrated Marketing Campaign for a Sports Event category. The event was also featured in various news outlets in 13 countries, including Malaysia, India, Turkey, and Spain.

Expect celebrities and athletes to join the event.
