What's Kenya Colour Run?

Kenya Colour Run is the country’s most creative 5k run! This unique run involves participants of all abilities and ages being doused from head to toe with coloured powder while they sprint, jog or walk 5km route on a marked course. The Kenya Colour Run is entirely focused on FUN so there is no competitive atmosphere, no recorded times and no age restrictions, all that matters is that you enjoy yourself and finish covered in loads of colour!

The event originated from India as the “Holi Festival” and is today a global event that promotes health and wellness by bringing the community together to participate in the “Most Creative 5K Run.” South Africa was the first country to host Color Run in Africa, followed by Zimbabwe in 2013.

Kenya Colour Run is under Africa Colour Run that organize events in Botswana, Zimbabwe and Namibia

Kenya Colour Run first event was in Nairobi in June 2017 and the second in Nanyuki in December. The main goal of these events was to promote peace awareness in midst of campaigns and elections as well as celebrate Kenya’s rich ethnic diversity.
