The Color Run 5k

Be bold and run 5k

Fancy running The Color Run at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park on 28 September? The 5k race, sponsored by Dulux, will transform the 20,000 participants into walking artworks, as coloured powder in varying hues will rain down along the course. It's being described as the happiest 5k and we can see why, it looks like it's all about having fun than beating PBs.
