Anything can happen at the "Happiest 5k on the Planet", earlier this year we even saw a marriage proposal at its sister event in Abu Dhabi. So fun run fans will be glad to know that The Color Run Dubai is back on November 12 and they've come up with something new to boost the experience. Dubbed the Tropicolor World Tour, participants can expect to immerse themselves in "island-style colors, music and unforgettable memories."
The Tropicolor World Tour introduces the all-new Tropicolor Zone, where runners will pass through palm trees,arches and exciting music. Then during Finish Festival, participants can enjoy interactive fun at the Rainbow Beach with sand, steel drummers, dancing and of course more color throws. Participants will be kitted out with a T-shirt, headband and flower lei for the occasion which is untimed and therefore free from the pressure of racing to the finish line.
