BFF Color Run

Color Run

Bonding Families with a Fun Run
Saturday, 28 September   

On Saturday, September 28, the culminating activity for National Family Week will be a fun bonding activity for families. For the 22 stakes from Metro Manila and its surrounding areas, a color fun run will be held at the Aseana City in Parañaque.

A fun run is a friendly race that involves either road running or cross country running with participants taking part for their own enjoyment rather than competition. The Color Run is a five-kilometer, untimed event. At each kilometer mark, Color Runners are doused from head to toe in a different colored powder. With no winners or official times, The Color Run caters to everyone—first time runners to seasoned athletes. Most participants are first-time 5K runners.
