‘The Color Run’ returns to Qatar next year

DOHA: One of the most eagerly anticipated events in Qatar’s sporting calendar is fast approaching as The Color Run presented by Sahtak Awalan: Your Health First returns to Qatar National Convention Centre on January 26, 2019.

The event will mark the fifth time that The Color Run — known as the ‘Happiest 5k on the Planet’ — has been brought to Qatar by Sahtak Awalan: Your Health First, the flagship public health campaign of Weill Cornell Medicine-Qatar (WCM-Q).

A large turnout is expected for The Color Run, which last year attracted a record-breaking 9,000 participants. As ever, 2019’s Color Runners will be doused from head to toe in brightly coloured powders at 1k intervals as they make their way around the course, before celebrating completion with friends and family at the Color Run Finish Festival.

The 2019 Color Run has a new ‘Hero Tour’ theme that will see participants don capes and other superhero garb when they collect their medals at the finish line. The 2019 edition will also feature the Foam Zone, in which participants can enjoy being covered with bubbles blown from foam machines.

Tickets can be purchased by visiting their website. Since its inception in 2012, The Color Run has become a global phenomenon.
