Brighton celebrates being most colourful city
Brighton is celebrating being the most colourful city in the UK this weekend, as thousands of people took part in this year's Color Run event.
More than 6,000 participants walked, skipped and ran around the 5k course in the sunshine today (September 23), while getting covered in an array of coloured powder.
Its fifth event, which took place along Madeira Drive, near to the pier, welcomed people of all ages,
A spokesman said: “With spectacular sea views, a brand new Cloud Foam Zone and an abundance of glorious sunshine, runners had every reason to cross the line with a huge smile on their faces.
“Participants were covered head-to-toe in kaleidoscopic coloured powder as they ran through Brighton before eventually crossing the finish line and joining thousands of fellow attendees at the Finish Festival, where the party continued.
“With a live set from DJ’s, MC’s getting the party started and the hotly anticipated mass Color Throws, a multicolour free-for-all where all runners come together to throw coloured powder over each other – it really was a day to remember.”
Marc Webster, senior vice president of Event Operations (Global) and IMG Mass Participation (EMEA), said: “Brighton was a fantastic location for the final leg of this year’s tour, and it was great to see thousands of people turn up to join the fun and experience what The Color Run has to offer.
“With the 2017 event series now coming to a close, we hope to welcome just as many participants who wish to spend their weekends in the brightest, most colourful way next year.”
