The Color Run is back, and is gonna help you live better

OCTOBER 10, 2017

The Color Run is the #Happiest5K on the planet. Founded in 2011, its mission is to bring people together and make the world a happier, healthier place. This year, The Color Run brings you The Superhero Tour – a challenge to believe in the hero in each and every one of us.

Mark your diaries:

When: 29 October 2017

Where: Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium

Time: 09H00 for 10h00

Hashtag: #TheHappiest5k #TCRHero #LiveBetter


Join the over four million global participants who have run, hopped, skipped, and danced their way through an un-timed five-kilometre circuit. “Color Runners” get closer and closer to kaleidoscopic throughout the course, as they pick up new tones at the Color Stations situated at each kilometre. And, The Color Run South Africa’s headline sponsor Capitec Bank will bring something more than a single day’s worth of fun to its fans.

“The Color Run is about living better in all the ways which enrich you, through being healthy, being happy, self-expression, and giving back,” says Francois Viviers, Exec: Marketing and Communications at Capitec Bank. “These principles align with Capitec Bank’s ethos, and as such Capitec is continuing to give back to communities across the country by donating R10.00 for every ticket sold in 2017 to our education upliftment programme.”

Even better, Color Runners have a chance to win a chance to wrestle rainbows under the Eiffel Tower! The superhero of the year will grab their favourite person, and jet off to The Color Run in Paris, France, in 2018. To enter, tag a pic of you being a superhero with #TCRHero and share on the main The Color Run South Africa Facebook page.

“The Superhero Tour aims to underpin the journey towards ongoing personal fulfilment and inner strength. The Superhero Tour is inspiring participants to celebrate themselves, and those who have mentored, encouraged, and positively influenced them,” says Trevor Latimer, national event co-ordinator of The Color Run South Africa. “We encourage you to share your stories with us – don’t forget to tag us at #TCRHero.”
