Yesterday I attended my first ever Rainbow Run. True to their word Spar was open for registration at exactly 7am, talk about great time keeping skills! The Rainbow Run was open for all ages and it was a great way to spend Mothers Day.
Distances covered included 2.5km, 5km or 10km colour run and the best part was you could either run or walk. Unfortunately the event was delayed because a lot of people didn’t keep time so registration took forever and a day. My intention was to run 5km but when we eventually started nearly an hour than the advertised time it was uncomfortably hot so my friends and I chose to walk instead. I bumped into so many familiar faces and some of my Twitter friends came to life!
There were lots of fun activities for both adults and children. Food stalls as well as a bar were conveniently placed within the venue. There was a hive of activity it’s unfortunate that I didn’t get to go through each and every stand.

The Rainbow Run was in a charity event to raise money to assist vulnerable young people in our community and we managed to raise $30 000!
My highlight of the entire event were the exploding colours. You can check out the video from my Facebook Page over here. A truck would pass by runners or walkers and fire away colours that would turn into colourful clouds. I felt like a child again. The excitement was unbelievable! There was part of the route where colour was spewed on the road and participants stopped to take pictures, roll on the ground and cover themselves with different colours and grab a refreshment of sort that was provided.
What I loved about the Rainbow Colour Run:
- The massage I received after my run from Massage Cafe, my body is so tense it’s unbelievable!
- Networking, I made new contacts that I’m going to be putting to great use.
- The amount of fun and laughter I experienced, I forgot about all my worries for an entire day.
- I got to spend Mothers Day surrounded by happy people.
Yesterday was an entire mood. I experienced Saturday vibes on a Sunday!
