Posted by on 3. May 2017

Color Manila Blacklight Run brings the regular dose of Color Manila fun into the night.  Run, play with the color and enjoy an after-run party.  The Manila leg is happening on May 27, 2017 at Filinvest City, Alabang.

Color Manila Blacklight Run

When it comes to bringing the fun concepts in a run, Color Manila has been the go-to brand for both non-runners and runners who just want to have a good time.  I’ve been part of the first Color Manila Run years ago and I continue to support the event. Why?  It’s the event that encourages even non-runners to try out the running lifestyle.  It’s a newbie friendly run that will make you fall in love with running.  The Blacklight Run brings in the color manila fun into the night with a neon colors that glows in the night with the blacklight headlamp.

The CM Blacklight Run in Manila, which will be held in Filinvest City, Alabang, on May 27, 2017, is targeting 12,000 runners.  This was also the total number of runners they had during their earlier event this year, which celebrated COLOR MANILA’S fifth year – called CMR5. Participants for this run may choose between four (4) race categories, 3K, 5K, 10K and the 6K Challenger category.

    This is different! What would be good about this, is that it is nor hot infact it would be a bit cooler. The glow in the dark paint makes the entire event exciting to look at.

    I like how simple fun-runs these days are more funner and has more twists. Playing with lights and colors is an absolute magic and even more enjoyable with exercise activities.

  3. Girl, Unspotted

    I like that they have packages where you can get goodies as well. Pretty cool stuff that comes with it too!

    These race organizers really come up with the most innovative concepts. This really looks like a lot of fun. More of a party than a run. The race kits looks so attractive and colorful.
