The Color Run is back! In 2017, it’s bringing The Superhero Tour to Durban’s shores. Strap on your capes – it’s gonna get colourful.

Make sure your cape is ironed:

Did you know, The Color Run South Africa raised over R500,000 in 2016 for local causes and educational based initiatives in the areas it visits? In addition, Capitec Bank donates R10 for each ticket sold to its various educational upliftment programmes, ensuring South Africans are given the opportunity to live better. “One thing Color Runners have demonstrated, is that it’s never only about them – the true mark of a superhero,” says Francois Viviers, Exec: Marketing and Communications at Capitec Bank. “It is for this reason that Capitec Bank is proud to be associated with South Africa’s Color Runners.”
This year, Color Runners have a chance to wrestle rainbows under the Eiffel Tower! The superhero of the year will grab their favourite person, and jet off to The Color Run in Paris, France, in 2018. To enter, tag a pic of you being a superhero with #TCRHero and share the main The Color Run South Africa Facebook page with your friends.
“The Superhero Tour is inspiring participants to celebrate themselves, and those who have mentored, encouraged, and positively influenced them,” says Trevor Latimer, national event co-ordinator of The Color Run South Africa.
Don your superhero cape and mask, and run, walk, skip, or zoom your way through 5km of kaleidoscopic colour at the #HAPPIEST5K
