Growing up and getting old is a reality but feeling old is optional. Color Manila Glitter Run helped us reach out to the inner children within us. Color Powder, Glitters and Bubbles plus a festive run gave us a really fun time with close friends.
Color Manila Glitter Run
A bubble shower at the finish line was the perfect way to cap this run. It was back to the childhood days where we’d go on carefree mode just enjoying those moments as it happens. This was followed by several more glitter station giving us a lot more glittery and colorful kind of dirty too. Color Manila just doesn’t run out of ways to make the run extra fun for the participants.
The story of Color Manila has been one feel-good story for years now. It started with a risky experiment years back on trying out a never-before tried color run concept in the country in a peaking running scene several years ago to a endless fun, party concept that has thrilled hundreds of thousands of runners. It’s been a launching pad of the no-bies, my term for no previous running or fitness activity, to avid and passionate runners.
Color Manila has been among the few runs that keeps me on the road this day because of its fun concept. It was a busy weekend for me but I’m glad to squeeze in a short and fun 5K run with Princess and Maica. I am lucky enough to have these two pretty ladies to join me for this one. It was a busy weekend for the two of them too but it’s a festive mood and we’re going at a chill pace so this should be fun.
We didn’t rush on this one but came just in time to the gunstart of the 5K run and immediately joined the action. The festivities began with the gunstart and we immediately got dosed with water just a few meter after the starting line. We went at just a jog paced and took time to take photos at the color stations. Each color station had its share of music and gimmicks.
First up was the orange station and followed by the green station, we made sure that we got real dirty at each station. After enjoying each station, we’d resume our jog at an enjoyable pace. I had to take a few breathers though as I still have cough so I had to take it a little bit easier than the usual. It was a long run from the green station as we took Diokno Boulevard, Seaside Drive u-turn before the blue station at sunrise drive.
We played around at the blue station by throwing color powders at each other. We then headed to Diokno Boulevard and made our return to Seaside Drive for the finish line. We started to speed up to finish but of course, there will always be time for picture taking at a course like this.
After the photo-ops, we then dashed our way to the finish line. Yeah, let’s add a bit of challenge by sprinting to the finish line. Once we’d hit the finish line, it was the bubble station and also back to our childhood playing in the bubbles with not a care in the world.
After a while we made our way to the event area where we got surprised by two more glitter stations. We got splattered by glitters and it was a shiny finish for the three of us. You’ll just love Color Manila by the many ways they bring back the fun in the run.
