5km Colour Run – Internation Super Hero Tour
Whenever I hear the word Run.. I literally want to do just that… away from actually doing that. But a superhero colour run sounds like tons of fun!
And the perfect activity for a lowkey, yet fun birthday celebration.
Nadia, my sister, initiated that we do the run and even completed the signup process for me. Her friends picked up our packs before the race, so all that was left to do was run!
We actually dressed up, and ended up having the best walk throughout the event.
My friends and I attended the Roosevelt Colour Run as well as the Randfontein one as well, Everyone pretty much walked the 5K and everyone was in such high spirits. A lot of people wore capes, tutu’s and stuck to the theme of Super Heroes!
There were a few fun activities, like Balloon darts, slo-mo video station, 360 photos and great photo ops all over the grounds. There were some cool chill areas and cleaning stations, just a lot of fun happening at the grounds.
The walk kicked off with a bang, and the best part about a colour RUN is that at every kilometre there is a colour station, the have designated throwers and it’s this long strip of people waiting to attack!
Each colour station is a different colour and you walk…or run… through it.
Can I just say, I think those colour station people were have a lot more fun that they ought to have because they get super into it!!!
They handed out some water along the way, and at the end of the 5km, you look like a unicorn farted on you, and it’s amazing. You then enter into the Cleaning Station where they take a leaf blower and well, off you go.
They had some awesome food stores, a stage with some entertainment and just a bunch of things to try out.
A colour party is totally different to the Colour run, because even though you buy those little baggies of powder, at the run, you are completely covered in the powder and that’s not even touching the bags you’ve bought.
There were BUCKETS of colour at the photo booth stations, so we were pretty colourful before we even hit the first colour station.

I was so lucky with the first colour run because I had apparently won a Special Runners Hamper for the Roosevelt School run because I shared the event on my social media pages, but I didn’t see that I had won until after the race was over. I contact the colour run organisers and they offered me four tickets to the Randfontein Stadium Run and I could also collect my hamper from them.
I am also anxiously awaiting the announcement of the Paris Trip Competition because my name was entered into the draw as well!!! Holding thumbs!
