Color Run tick­ets still avail­able

Cape Argus - - METRO - Staff Re­porter

THE COLOR Run will turn Cape Town into a rain­bow to­mor­row. Tick­ets for the hap­pi­est 5km run on the planet have been sell­ing fast and it is set to be one of the most ex­cit­ing events tak­ing place this week­end.

If you still need to col­lect your gear, your last chance to do so will be to­day be­tween 9am and 5pm at the pick-up point at Green Point Track at 11 Fritz Sonnenberg Road, Green Point.

All regis­tered run­ners must col­lect their par­tic­i­pa­tion packs (which in­clude the of­fi­cial 2018 event shirt, head­band, pow­der, tem­po­rary tat­too, race num­ber and more) be­fore the event.

To­mor­row, fes­tiv­i­ties are set to kick off at 9am at the fes­ti­val zone at Sea Point Prom­e­nade. “There is some­thing al­ways go­ing on. There’s en­ter­tain­ment along the whole route and at the fes­ti­val zone at the end (of the run),” said or­gan­iser and mar­ket­ing man­ager for Sport Vendo James Bell.

“(The event is) com­pletely fam­ily-friendly, so no al­co­hol is in­volved, and the pow­der (with which par­tic­i­pants colour them­selves) is made from or­ganic corn starch, so it’s not painful or harm­ful. It’s loads of en­ter­tain­ment and from a par­ent-per­spec­tive, it’s a fun way to get the kids out and do­ing ex­er­cise.”

All run­ners should get ready in the start chute at 2.45pm, as the start­ing gun goes off at 3pm. Run­ners take off in batches of ap­prox­i­mately 500 three min­utes apart.

It takes be­tween one and two hours to run or walk to the end of the route. At the fes­ti­val zone there will be food and drink, best-dressed com­pe­ti­tions, and DJs and lo­cal acts will pro­vide mu­sic and en­ter­tain­ment.

A lim­ited num­ber of tick­ets are still avail­able and they are go­ing fast.
