the color run is the happiest 5k on the planet!


I can now concur. The Color Run is the happiest 5k on the planet. Yesterday the sun was shining down on the first ever London Color Run at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.

Why does colour make us happy? Because when it comes to psychology, colour is emotion. When we feel the positive effects of colour combined with a fun event such as The Color Run you just can’t help but feel happy. You just need to remember to keep your mouth closed when running through the colour stations, whilst you’ll want a colourful t-shirt you may not want colourful teeth!

Here are just a few photos of the day…

The only way to celebrate at the finish line is with a giant shoe ;


I asked this guy if I could take his picture before the run started. He found me to take a picture of his colourful head after he’d finished.  Clearly got bombed in the pink zone.

There are Color Run events all over the UK, the US and Australia and the list is growing. If you get the chance it’s a fun day out experiencing the happiest 5k on the planet!
