The Colour Run - level 1

The Colour Run - level 1

04-12-2014 15:00

People hold the Colour Run in Dubai. This is a five-kilometre run. More than 12,000 people run in it. Every kilometre, people shower colour powder on the runners.

The run is a happy event. People run and have fun at the same time. However, some people have problems. They swallow some of the powder.

Difficult words: be held (to be organised), powder (something that is like very soft sand), swallow (to eat something).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
