Color Runners are registering quicker than ever to participate in the sixth edition of The Color Run presented by Sahtak Awalan: Your Health First, an initiative of Weill Cornell Medicine-Qatar. Packs are selling out fast for the Happiest 5k on the Planet, taking place on 25th January 2020 at the Qatar National Convention Centre (QNCC).  

The Color Run encourages everyone to discover the fun side of exercise and pay it forward to those in need. Participants get to enjoy the positive vibes and cheerful colorful surroundings while walking, jogging, skipping or running, knowing that a portion of the event’s proceedings will be supporting education for out-of-school children by donating a portion of the proceeds for the Together education project in Qatar. This year’s Love Tour theme will bring family and friends together to take them on an unforgettable experience, getting soaked in bright colors as they move from one station to the next throughout the 5k course.

The fun continues at the Finish Festival, a larger-than-life party equipped with music, photo opportunities, activity booths, vendors, and more massive color throws, creating millions of vivid color combinations. The 2019 edition welcomed over 10,000 Color Runners, and this Saturday’s event is on course to be even bigger! Color Runners in Doha vary in age, nationality, physical fitness and reasons for running. With no winners or official times, the event caters to everyone — first time runners to seasoned athletes. More than half of the participants are first-time 5K runners.
