The Color Run™ Kuala Lumpur Is Back And Here Are All The Deets!

Is life looking a little dull for you? Well, things are about to get crazy colourful cos the happiest 5km run is back in KL!


Be prepared to be dashed with technicolour powders as the second round of The Color Run™ 5km run will happen on 13 August 2017 at Padang Merbok, KL.

In line with the event’s Tropicolour World Tour, you’ll feel like you’ve been whisked away to a tropical paradise! You’ll be surrounded by a sea of brilliant tropical themed hues and decor at every coloured zone, complete with tropical inflatable arches, palm trees, island-style music and a beach (sort of). Hello, Instagram-worthy or what?!

The untimed 5-kilometre race, organised by IMG,  is purely for the joy of having fun –  not about winning, but about promoting happiness, health, and individuality. The run will not only return to KL but also to other ASEAN countries like Singapore and Jakarta, all three proudly sponsored by the CIMB group.

“The Color Run™ brings with it a strong following and I am excited to see the return of this event to not just one, but three of our key markets this year,” said the CIMB Group, Group Chief Executive, Tengku Dato’ Sri Zafrul Aziz.

“I look forward to the festivities and having a great time at all three runs, which provide a fun platform for CIMB to engage with its customers and local communities, to demonstrate how we continue to support their different lifestyles and goals through our new brand promise “Forward”. I’m confident that participants are in for an exciting and memorable experience,”

The event is open to all from babies to grannies, but no pets, please. So grab everybody you know!
