It’s the ultimate Saturday night!

Partying with your friends beneath the London night sky, running around the iconic Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park whilst getting doused in illuminous coloured powder – there’s no better way to spend a September Saturday night! At the end of your 5k, The Color Run’s famous Festival Finish will take the party to the next level with Capital DJs and epic MCs bringing a huge party atmosphere to help you round off an awesome evening.

You get to have buckets of fun, whilst exercising

The Color Run Night is untimed so you can go at your own pace, have a giggle with friends, get covered in every colour of the rainbow and embrace the awesomeness that is the ‘Happiest 5k on the Planet’. On top of the new illuminated ‘color zones’ around the course you’ll get to enjoy a magical bubble zone and glow in the dark colour throws - share the experience with friends, family and colleagues for an amazing evening of glow in the dark fun.

It’s selfie central

If you’ve been to The Color Run in the day time you’ll know you won’t ever take a better photo than you did that day. FACT! Now add in glow in the dark powder, bubbles and an illuminated backdrop at the famous Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park and you’ve got that photo awesomeness times a thousand!! The ultimate snaps come courtesy of the ‘Color Throws’ at the Festival Finish, hold onto your colour packets and  throw in unison to glow the skies.

You can raise money for an amazing cause

NSPCC are the event’s official charity partner. You can support the children’s charity when you sign up by donating straight to the charity and make sure you visit their activation area and high five their amazing staff on the night.

And, of course, getting covered in colour!

You may start dressed in a plain black tee but there’s absolutely no way for it to stay squeaky clean, you’ll be head-to-toe in glorious glow in the dark multicolour at the end of the night. Plus, at the start line and in the Festival Finish The Color Run MCs will be hurling out incredible merchandise to ensure you look the part. Glow sticks, socks, tutus, LED sunnies – the more colourful the better… you better get practicing your catching skills!

Entries to The Color Run Night at Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park on Saturday 5th September 2015 are priced from £29. Participants should visit www.thecolorrun.co.uk/Night to sign-up now. Entries come off sale soon!

Participants will receive a limited edition glowing t-shirt as well as a black light headlamp in their race packs to help them twinkle beneath the night sky.
