The Color Run returns to Qatar in 2019

More than 9,000 participants took part in the 2018 edition of The Color Run. The 2019 edition takes place at QNCC on Saturday, 26 January, 2019.

One of the most eagerly anticipated events in Qatar’s sporting calendar is fast approaching as The Color Run presented by Sahtak Awalan: Your Health First returns to Qatar National Convention Centre on Saturday, 26 January, 2019.

The event will mark the fifth time that The Color Run – known as the ‘Happiest 5k on the Planet’ – has been brought to Qatar by Sahtak Awalan: Your Health First, the flagship public health campaign of Weill Cornell Medicine-Qatar (WCM-Q).

A large turnout is expected for The Color Run, which last year attracted a record-breaking 9,000 participants. As ever, 2019’s Color Runners will be doused from head to toe in brightly colored powders at 1k intervals as they make their way around the course, before celebrating completion with friends and family at the Color Run Finish Festival.

The 2019 Color Run has a new ‘Hero Tour’ theme that will see participants don capes and other superhero garb when they collect their medals at the finish line. The 2019 edition will also feature the Foam Zone, in which participants can enjoy being covered with bubbles blown from foam machines.

People from every part of the community in Qatar have shown their enthusiasm for living a healthy lifestyle by taking part in The Color Run. The Color Run is a unique event that celebrates health, happiness and individuality by empowering and encouraging participants of all ages and abilities to focus on their health and well-being. The excitement and hype witnessed towards this wonderful event demonstrates once again Qatar’s vision to empower and inspire all to lead healthier and happier lifestyles.
