The event is dubbed as “The Funnest Run on Earth”, due to its uniqueness, setting itself apart from usual 5K runs.

At Colour Obstacle Rush, runners are tasked with overcoming exciting obstacles, while also coming across colour stations, frothing foam and music zones.

On their website, Colour Obstacle Rush describes the run as “a unique event combining the fun of colour powdered runs, the thrill of an obstacle course, and the atmosphere of a music festival.”
