- Color Me Run 2016:
Yes, at last! Color Me Run is back once again after two successful sessions in the last two years. And for those of you, who still have no idea about this yearly sport/entertainment event, let me break it down for you real quick. Color Me Run was first introduced in April 2014 with a whole new experience for audience to participate in an interactive format of sport event, combining a running track with different colored gates as you pass through them, and everyone will get to smash color powder at each other during the run for an element of fun. When you get to the finish line, a stage filled with music and excitement is waiting for you ahead as a reward; featuring both international and local artists.
This year, Color Me Run is set to welcome all of the runners on April 16th 2016 (Yay! Just in time for King Hung Celebration!) at Truong Van Bang, District 2 HCMC. You can now register a place at: http://colormerun.vn/ho-chi-minh.html. If you want to register offline, just head to Pulse Active Office at 47 Phung Khac Khoan St, Dist 1 (8th floor). After registering, there will be dates set for you to collect your kit for the run. Are you excited as I am? RUN FOR YOUR…JOY! (not run for your life, of course).
