Yerevan Color Run 2018
Festivals and Events
The brightest and most colorful 5-kilometer run awaits you in Yerevan once again this September. Are you ready for Yerevan Color Run 2018?
Hundreds of people from all over the the world gather every year to participate in the annual Yerevan Color Run. The festival is known as the happiest and most colorful running event in the world. Over 35 countries and 6 million runners have experienced the joy and all around fun of the Color Run.
The event will take place on September 30 and will consist of two parts, the run itself and the colorful party afterwards. Color Run itself is usually a 5 kilometer un-timed dash throughout which the runners are showered head to toe with different colors, yet this year the distance was changed to 2,800 meters as a celebration of Erebuni-Yerevan 2800. The participants who take the 1-3 places will be awarded as the results get announced to the crowd.
It’s recommended to dress in all-white in order for the colors to show up more, creating colorful combinations on your skin and clothes. After all the runners complete the route, they’ll be greeted with music and dancing. Even if you don’t want to participate in the “marathon” or you’re simply there to cheer for a friend or a family member, you can still get showered in colors during the party.
The aim of Yerevan Color Run is to promote healthy lifestyle and fitness to a broader audience and to assure people that even running can be fun. The event presents an exclusive opportunity for people who have never participated in marathons or anything similar as it’s designed for a broader demographic. It’s a great headstart for anyone wishing to get into running or even an excellent one time challenge for anyone wishing.
So what are you waiting for? Grab your running shoes, your ticket and head straight to Shahumyan Square, Yerevan to dive into this colorful experience, test your skills and party until you drop.
