Two years ago, I signed up for the first ever Color Run and was petrified of prospect of going all the way to Fengtai from Shunyi but it was worth every minute of it. The Color Run opened registration on Thursday and is a great family do as the kids will love getting pelted with different colors and run – well more like walking as people stop to take photos. The popularity of the event takes place on June 20 (kicking off the long weekend) will have spaces fill up very fast as it’s only 5K.
If you want to get ready for the 5K then HeyRunning might be a good place to start as they have an urban run on Mondays, park run on Wednesdays and LSD every Sundays. The timetable might change due to the pollution so check the website or sign up for their newsletter.
