Mental and physical health boost with upcoming Colour Run

JOBURG – Each Colour Runner will also receive a race shirt, medal, race number and packet of powder.


Gautengers will be able to enter the upcoming festive season with colour and joy as Sportsvendo’s first non-virtual event since the outbreak of Covid-19 will take place on November 27 at the Mall of Africa.

The Colour Run provides fun and entertainment to all ages and families who can now escape from their homes and participate together in this event.

“With The Colour Run, we create an event for the whole family. This will probably be the most fun they have while exercising together as a family,” Leon Swanepoel, Sportsvendo’s CEO said.

The Colour Run is a 5km event in which thousands of participants are splashed in different colours at each kilometre. With no winners or official times, The Colour Run caters to everyone – from first-time runners to seasoned athletes.

“We hope that with The Colour Run we can encourage families to spend quality time together while also looking after their health and wellness,” Swanepoel added.

According to life coach Heidi Mollentze, many people are unaware that they suffer from Covid-19 burnout.

“Our physical and mental health are more important than ever before and participating together in fun events and staying physically active will help with help with anxious thoughts, feelings and exhaustion,” Mollentze explained.

According to her, it was important to remember that the healthier the mind, the healthier the body could be. The same is true for how healthier the body, how healthier the mind is, as it feeds into each other.

The bright colours of The Colour Run resemble the optimism for the future. It is a combination of cornstarch, baking soda, and FD&C dyes and although it can be washed out the memories will stay forever.

The Colour Run is open to everyone and children under two participate for free. Mini runners entry tickets are available for children between the ages of 2 to 12.

Each Colour Runner will also receive a race shirt, medal, race number and packet of powder.

The Colour Run will be a controlled event that will take place under strict health and safety protocols. Participants can be rest assured that their safety remains our absolute priority.

Before Covid-19, The Colour Run was globally the most successful 5km fun run and walk event with millions participating.

Before Covid-19 in South Africa, the event was hosted nationally in more than 12 cities. Sportsvendo confirmed that for 2021, it would only be possible to host one event and with the Mall of Africa being central to Gauteng and surrounding provinces, it was the natural choice as a venue.

The number of participants will also be limited to 2 000.
