Color Run Abu Dhabi Girl Gets Bright Marriage Proposal

This Girl Got the Most Colorful Marriage Proposal in Abu Dhabi

It's dubbed the "Happiest 5k on the Planet" and the Color Run Abu Dhabi lived up to it's name at the weekend, as the UAE event experienced it's first ever marriage proposal.

Participant AlRen Vincent Bucoy popped the question to Michelle Veasco in front of the 8,000 people who took part in the bright festivities.

Covered in a rainbow of sprays and paints he surprised his love on stage while the fun runners enjoyed the post-event Finish Festival. And the move made the atmosphere electric.

He said about getting his partner to say yes in a spectacular way: "First off, I knew I had to do something special for her. A couple of friends told us about The Color Run and I thought, what a cool and colorful way to propose. I really wanted to set a time when she was least expecting it.

"Proposing in front of thousands of people cheering us on at the Finish Festival was such an amazing experience with all of my friends and family there and it will be something I will never forget".

$1 from each person taking part went to Friends of Cancer Patients charity and those in attendance - including a unicorn mascot named Runicorn - danced through a kaleidoscope of colors to the sounds of pumping music at Yas Marina Circuit. Now that's got to be one of the most exciting ways to say "I do".
