The Colour Run - level 3
The now famous Colour Run which has participants showered with coloured powders every kilometre of a 5-kilometre fun run has reached Dubai with more than 12,000 participants.
Known as the happiest five kilometres on the planet, having large amounts of powder thrown in your face surprisingly has its downsides. “We have eaten like all the colours.”
“And it reach your mouth, so we swallowed most of them.”
Finally understanding what purple tastes like isn't the only ambition of the event.
“Really, it's just a celebration of health and happiness and making people realise that they can do some exercising, get active and be healthy and have a good time at, you know, the same time.”
Just two years old, the Colour Run continues to grow, following events in America, Europe, Asia and Australia.
Difficult words: shower (to fall all over someone or something), powder (material that is like very soft sand), swallow (to allow something to pass down the throat), ambition (goal), active (to do something).
