Following the overwhelming success of previous editions of The Color Run™ presented by Sahtak Awalan: Your Health First, thousands are once again expected to join the fun on Saturday, January 28, 2017 at the Qatar National Convention Centre (QNCC) as the Tropicolor World Tour makes its mark on Doha.

Color Runners are promised a lively island-style experience complete with lots more fun and color, as they run, walk, dance, jog or even skip through the five kilometer course with their family and friends, whilst getting covered head to toe in color at every kilometer mark.

Color Runners are encouraged to arrive at the QNCC on the day by around 7 AM, with the first wave of runners setting off at 8:30 AM.

Now in its third year in Qatar, The Color Run™ presented by Sahtak Awalan: Your Health First, encourages and empowers participants of all ages and abilities to focus on being healthy and happy in a relaxed running environment.

The Color Run™ is once again supported by Weill Cornell Medicine - Qatar Qatar (WCM-Q), whose health campaign, Sahtak Awalan: Your Health First, will present the event, as Color Runners focus on leading a healthier, more active lifestyle.

Both seasoned Color Runners and first timers can look forward to an enhanced experience with the all new Tropicolor Zone as part of the Tropicolor World Tour.

On the day, all Color Runners will be bathed in a wondrous tropical array of colors as they pass through the shades of palm trees and arches, with lively island-style music completing this unique experience.

Once they have completed the fun run, Color Runners will be able to continue on with the festivities at the memorable Finish Festival, a larger than life party, with Rainbow beach, an interactive island featuring music, dancing, photo opportunities, entertainment, sponsored activations, and, of course, massive color throws!

Once Color Runners have purchased their tickets for next year’s event as part of a brand new race pack they will receive a tropical, new style t-shirt, funky embroidered headband, fun tattoos and a tropical flower lei.

These items will be adding an extra splash of fun and color for friends and family to enjoy together while soaking up this island-style vacation in the heart of Doha.

This edition of The Color Run™ is organized by IMG Middle East. Qatar Living is also on-board as the media partner.

Color Runners of all ages and levels can take part on January 28, 2017, with tickets now available from
