Over 12,000 runners took part in what’s arguably the country’s most colorful, fun run—the 5th Color Manila event on January 8. Getting pelted with colored powder and glitter on the run, no matter what the distance—21K, 10K, 5K and 3K—brings home the point that running can be an enjoyable sport, said organizers.

“This is our biggest annual event and we like to start the year with a big bang,” says Justin Cordero, vice president for Color Manila. He noted the presence of familiar faces who have been supporting this run since it began in 2013. “We look forward to seeing more of them in the future,” he added.

Runners, drenched in sweat, bright hues, and shiny glitter, were greeted at the finish line with dancing and music at the Color Manila Festival.
