With less than three weeks to go until The Color Run descends on the NEC, keen ‘Color Runners’ are being urged to sign-up to the event before it’s too late. With entries closing on Sunday 9th August, hopeful participants should visit www.thecolorrun.co.uk/Birmingham as soon as possible to secure their place at the ‘Happiest 5k on the Planet’.

Already hyped for another awesome summer of The Color Run madness, tickets are being snapped up by ‘Color Runners’ for events across the UK. Returning for its second year, the Birmingham event takes place on Saturday 15th August 2015.

Starting the day as a blank canvas, participants will follow a 5km course around the NEC, getting doused in a different colour powder at each kilometre, finishing the day covered in kaleidoscopic colour! A celebration of happiness, healthiness, friendship, family and fun, the event isn’t timed and boasts an incredible party atmosphere.

At the finish line, the colour covered partygoers will join the Festival Area where they’ll be treated to  a great mix of DJs, MCs, the infamous ‘Color Throws’ and a host of colour crazy giveaways.

James Robinson, Managing Director of event organisers, IMG Challenger World said: “We’re going to be in for a real treat this year. Once again the people of Birmingham and the surrounding areas have shown their passion and excitement for this unique event. We can’t wait to colour the city in August!”

This year’s event takes place at the NECon Saturday 15th August 2015. Entries close at midnight on Sunday 9th August, participants should visit www.TheColorRun.co.uk to enter now.
