The famous race returns to the kingdom for two new editions, on 26 October in Riyadh and on 2 November in Jeddah.

After the success of the first edition, which brought together more than 10,000 runners last March in Alkhobar, the famous race is back in the kingdom for two more colorful days. 

On 26 October next in Riyad, and on 2 November in Jeddah, more than 15,000 people are expected, alone, in couples or with their families, to travel this 5 km in joy and good humor, with a good dose of coloring battle – without consequences for humans or the environment, of course.

 

Promoting sport and health

The event, organized by the General Entertainment Authority, is part of the “Quality of Life” section of the Vision 2030 plan, dear to Crown Prince Mohammed ben Salmane. Indeed, in addition to the opportunity to have fun and flood Instagram with colorful pictures, the race is also an initiative promoting sport and health, and aimed at improving the lifestyle of Saudi Arabians.

It should be recalled that the Color Run is now present in more than 40 countries and that more than 7 million runners have already participated.
