4. Every Color Manila Run is like a 2-in-1 event

You read it right: going to a Color Manila run is like going to 2 events for 1! The fun never ends with the colored powders, obstacles or twistsnot even at the finish linebecause every Color Manila run caps off with a color festival where everyone celebrates their hearts out to the latest hits in a shower of more colored powder madness.

And in the end, like in the case of CM Challenge Manila, you’ll realize how fun it is to party in coloreven if it’s at 10 am on a Sunday morning.

3. Awesome kits at reasonable prices

You get to experience the happy feeling of getting your money’s worth and more more MORE! That’s one way of describing getting a race kit for a Color Manila run. Every kit comes with an assortment of items depending on what race kit you purchased. Though, of course, it features the essentials: a singlet, finisher’s medal, race bib, color packet, and sunglasses or a headlamp. You won’t need to worry that much on what items to bring or what top to wear, thanks to these awesome kits!

2. Everyone’s a winner

In a Color Manila run, whether you’re the first to finish or the last person in the course, everyone gets first place! It’s no competition, so everyone gets a finisher’s medal, bragging rights and a chance to wave your medals in the air during the color festival. Now that’s a win-win situation.

1. Diversity and Camaraderie

Ultimately, what’s more to a Color Manila run than just a collision of colored powder is the “collision” of a different kind of hue – nationalities and personalities.

I, myself, became part of the those who cheered on and encouraged other struggling challengers at the different obstacles. I, myself, saw and had a fellow challenger whom I never knew, come by and help me with the wall-over obstacle.

From both perspectives of being a runner and a fellow supporter, I gained a sense of new hope for humanity and even Pinoy Pride as we all went through the obstacle course together. And I don’t know where else you can experience both things coupled up with fun, music, and tons of color together with a community of challengers who are up for a fun time in their running shoes.
