Race report: Manchester Color Run - Sunday, July 5, 2015

Manchester Color Run - Sunday, July 5, 2015

Nearly 10,000 happy ‘Color Runners’  headed to Manchester’s Etihad Campus this weekend when the Happiest 5k on the planet  returned to the city for the third time.

Starting as a blank canvas and finishing head-to-toe in every colour of the rainbow, fun-loving runners from across the city and beyond took part in the ‘Happiest 5k on the Planet’ today. Following a course that meandered round Manchester’s Etihad Campus, participants were covered in coloured powder at every kilometre before making their way across the finish line and into the Festival Finish.

In celebration of their efforts, ‘Color Runners’ then partied in true Mancunian style, filling the skies with vibrant multicolour as Capital DJs pumped awesome live music  from the stage.  

Driving the concept of the untimed 5k, The Color Run™ is about enjoying a day of fitness and fun, with the aim for participants to cross the finish line with smiles on their faces. Today saw participants jog, walk, skip and dance their way around the route with friends, family and colleagues.

James Robinson, MD of the event organisers, said: “Manchester never disappoints, we always have so much fun here because everyone truly embraces what The Color Run is all about:  healthiness, fun, friendship and a celebration of happiness.”
