COLOR MANILA CHALLENGE DAVAO 2018
CHALLENGE DAVAO 2018
Those who love to run would probably want something more fun than a fun run. Color Manila organizers knew this and so they color the fun, an indication of a healthy lifestyle that need not be boring at all.
Color Manila has been the talk of the town since it posted an announcement that it will be coming to Davao City. Last October 28, 2018, hundreds of Dabawenyos and other runners from the neighboring city gathered at the Crocodile Park to join the fun in the Color Manila Challenge Davao event.
In their website, Color Manila promised less run, more obstacles and ultimate fun.
“Run, skip, hop, slide, and crawl your way through obstacles while wrapped in colors at CM Challenge Davao, because your Sunday should be way more than just staying in bed or strolling at the mall,” stated in the Color Manila website to encourage more Dabawenyos to join.
The race distances were 3K, 5K and 10K run.
The event also gave the participants three major obstacles, namely, the Slide with Pride, Wreck it Ball, Bounce Bounce Baby were participants have to go through to get the medal. The race was designed so that runners take mandatory stops at “color stations” to play with colors and activities within the area.
It could be remembered that Color Manila cancelled the event last August which somehow disappointed some 1,500 runners. The event organizers explained that the suppliers of medals, obstacles and color patches still did not arrive, hence the cancellation.
Regardless of what happened, Color Manila Challenged Davao tried to give a run that was not meant to be raced. The goal was to enjoy and to have fun in each obstacle that will block the way to the finish line.
