A bona fide fun run

It's not dubbed the happiest 5K on the planet for nothing. The sheer number of smiles that surface from the sea of participants hint that it's a lifestyle event that caters to everyone, young and old. Back in Singapore for the fourth time, join the worldwide phenomenon as The Color Run spreads fun around the globe. Start your run with a clean white shirt and cross the finishing line like a rockstar splashed with a riot of colour.

Happening on 20 and 21 August, feel the vibrancy of 'Tropicolor', the theme of this year's run, as you charge through four colour zones. The race winds through Sentosa, bringing an island-style experience that will have you wishing all sports related activities were as fun. The untimed five-kilometer event allows you to sprint, jog or even stroll through the throng of 18,000 to the finish line. Whether you're jamming to tunes or emerging like a rainbow unicorn, this unique race will have you grinning from ear to ear.

Each participant can also look forward to the limited-edition Tropicolor race shirt, finisher's medal, embroidered headband, and quirky temporary tattoos. Registration for The Color Run Singapore starts from 6 June, 2pm.
