Why The Kenya Colour Run is the country’s most creative 5k run!

The Kenya Colour Run is the country’s most creative 5k run! Get ready to run through colour clouds that will leave you on cloud 9! 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! You can be an Olympic athlete or someone entering a run for the first time in your life, it really doesn’t matter at all. The real winner on the day is the person who has the most fun!

Runners begin dressed in clean white t-shirts provided by sponsors, and pass through a colour station once every kilometer. Each colour station is associated with a different colour, with volunteers blasting the runners with dyed corn-starch powder out of spray bottles

At the finish line following the untimed run, there are typically celebrations called the Finish Festival featuring a fun Zumba/Aerobics Session, Dance Party and Food & Beverages village. Plus splash of more colour

As Kenya Colour Run we have partnered with charities to help shine a light on their amazing work within society, and donate proceeds to the causes they stand for. Towards this we have partnered with Sports For Change which is a local charity organization that supports the education of bright but disadvantaged students from high school up to tertiary level.
