Imagine being showered with sprays of paint in a gazillion pretty hues. Now picture this while running with the cool evening breeze blowing against you. If this sounds like something straight out of a trippy EDM music video, then it’s time to get hyped!

The Color Run is going to be held at night for the first time ever in SG on September 23 - and it’s going to be a neon fest like no other.

Here’re 4 reasons why you should paint the town in all shades of the colour palette at Sentosa.

 

1. It’s untimed so you can focus on having fun

Clocking your best time at a run is always the ultimate goal, but not at this one. The Color Run is well and truly a fun run, so take a leisurely stroll with your BFFs or a slow jog - whatever’s comfier for you.

There will always be that one guy who races ahead and blitzes the race, but where's the fun in that? You’ll probably never come across another run with plumes of illuminated coloured dust coating the air, so enjoy the chill vibes here!

 

2. There will be neon-lit zones and BUBBLES lighting up the course

Colourful sprays at past Color Runs are pretty awesome. But this night version takes it up many notches - I mean, what else can trump bright neon fluorescent lights and illuminated bubbles?

The Color Run Night will feature these awesome possum neons at every 1km juncture, each marked with a different colour. It’s gon’ be lit - literally.

Tip: The blacklight lamp provided in your race kit will play up the neon glows, so make sure to wear it and get properly doused in every colour!

 

3. Dance in the dark at the post-race party

 

There’s nothing like pounding beats after you’re done pounding the pavement, so save some of your stamina and energy for the after party. It wouldn’t do to be too drained to enjoy Part 2 of the event - AKA when the real fun starts.

There’ll be an all-new foam zone, so head-bang to DJ Jason Kai and DJ Reiko’s beats while soaking in these foam bubbles. For non-runners, don’t worry - this party isn’t all-exclusive, so you can get in on the action too!

 

4. You'll get free entry into Sentosa for the day

Skip paying that $4 Sentosa fee! Wear your bib to get free entry when using Sentosa's shuttle bus or monorail. It comes as part of your Color Run funpack, so make sure you have it before leaving your house.

Once the run is over you are allowed in to Vivocity - rainbow-coated skin and all. Just be sure to wash/wipe off as much powder as you can before entering the mall to keep the premises as spick and span as possible.

 

Bonus: Use these pre-run tips!

Oodles of fun await, so you should definitely be pumped! To make your run the best ever and to avoid any potential buzzkills, here are some things to take note of pre-race:

  • Train properly leading up to the run - taking care of yourself is the best way to enjoy it
  • Make sure you pack your race kit, including your registration details and bib
  • Wear either the event tee to get in the spirit or a black tee to show more of the neon colors
  • Bring a change of clothes if you don’t want your car or belongings to be smeared with coloured powder
  • Have wet wipes on you to get all the powder off after the run
  • Bring goggles/scarf/bandana to protect your eyes, nose and mouth from the powder
  • Bring a ziplock bag to store your phone in so the powder doesn’t get into the crevices
 

Be a part of the #Happiest5K on the planet
