A different kind of fun run: Color Manila Blacklight Run 2017

It’s the Holi Festival where the concept of color run first came into existence.

“The festival has many purposes. First and foremost, it celebrates the beginning of the new season, spring. Originally, it was a festival that commemorated good harvests and the fertile land. Hindus believe it is a time of enjoying spring’s abundant colours and saying farewell to winter. It also has a religious purpose, commemorating events present in Hinduism. During this event, participants hold a bonfire, throw coloured powder at each other, and celebrate wildly. . . . The main day, Holi, also known as Dhuli in Sanskrit,”

Good thing we have our own here in the Philippines! I always think that fun runs are quite boring, especially to someone like me who’s not into sports. I love Color Manila’s concept where you run with a lot of fun, literally!
