Color Run 2018 is Crazy Fun

WHAT a Colourful RUN! Color Run 2018 🙂

It was our first Color Run 2018. We have participated in many family races before, but none is as colourful and outlandish as Color Run 2018 :p

Our running t-shirts before and after the race 🤣, was totally unrecognisable. We started with White but ended with rainbow of colours haha. Even our hair changed colours.

The run was a good opportunity for Boon Wee to take a short break from his exams preparation.

The crowd, the atmosphere, the spread of cheers and colours brought the event to a high.

Color Run 2018 venue was at Sentosa Palawan Beach.

I did not expect so many families to turn up for this run, venue was packed with happy spirits (and Unicorns and Tutus and Ponies)  and everyone was raring to GO.

No wonder they call Color Run the Happiest5K run 🙂
Participants were celebrating Health, Happiness and Individuality.

Some event booths activities for the participants, and Unicorns led us through a warm up session.

 

Weather was hot, but it did not dampen our spirits. Once the race started, most of the route was under shades.

Spotted plenty of Unicorns and Little Ponies in #ColorRunSG

Alas, the 1st to 2nd km marker was not a Happy Route as many struggled to run up slope along Imbiah Hill.

Many chose to walk instead 🙂
I never knew about such a scenic and tranquil trail before Color Run 2018.

Running under familiar Sentosa Island icons. No matter how tired, we must remember to selfie and have FUN.


 

Enjoying the moment. We learnt quickly to keep our mouths closed when volunteers splash colours :p

EMBRACE the colors! Make ourselves as colourful as possible haha.
Boon Wee trying to evade the volunteers haha!

He did enjoyed the race and would like his siblings to join next year 🙂

Video ( YouTube Link) : Check out how we dashed through all the Colors !

One section got a bubbles bath haha, we dashed through it and was soaked in soap and shampoo. A cool respite from the run but I hoped the fan (or blower) was bigger though 😊

This sounds weird but we were sweating multiple colours haha, yellow, purple, red and blue. But the smiles are across all the runners.

5km completed, I turned into a blonde 😁
We definitely Ran in Style!

Families finishing together 😍 More Happy faces on IG #ColorRunSG

We stayed behind to cheer the the 5pm runners. Get ready to be splashed with COLOURS even before you start!

We spotted a “Super ON” photographer (ie enthusiastic) prowling the grounds at Palawan. She was coated in green just like HULK but her megawatt smile was charming.

I hope her DSLR is colour proof 🙂

Thank you UnionPay for the Fun invite, we enjoyed the Run! Event was very well organised and the atmosphere was electrifying.

 

Do follow Color Run Singapore on their Website and Facebook. Take a look at the post-run Color Blast “concert” on @theColorRunSG Instagram !

We do have one recommendation for the organisers. Please consider two water points, especially since we are running under mid-afternoon sun and route has uphill elements.

First Run with my girl at Cold Storage Kids Run 2018

[ Media Invite ]

This morning, I enjoyed the First Run with my girl at Cold Storage Kids Run 2018. Location was at Sentosa, near to Beach Station.

We arrived earlier and promptly got ourselves a cup of milo. We were fortunate as we heard the carpark  was full and many runners were delayed.

 

 

 

As we make our way to the start point, sea of Green and White crowded Sentosa Palawan beach area. Kids were dashing, parents were anticipating with their handphones for perfect photo moments.

 

Festive atmosphere. We can actually participate in fun events (including bouncing castles) before the race starts. Might not be a good idea for younger kids in case they exert too much energy 🙂

Kiwi (one of the mascots) ready to flag off the 2km category. We had signed up for the Fruity Family Run as I was not sure whether my girl was enthusiastic about 2 km.

Very competitive kids, they were dashing to the start point. Hello, race has not started yet 🙂

 

I would commend the Cold Storage Kids Run organisers for a well organised run. Runners were guided into wait pens, they were allow to run in waves to minimised congestion. The process and flow was both neat and with safety in mind.

Parents who are waiting at the end-point must have a matching “wrist-tag” in order to pickup their child. This is a good measure to ensure kids will not be lost.

More mascots for photo opportunities. The DJ keep repeating “Baby shark”, toddlers are happy but poor parents (my ears!)

And so we got ready for 800m. The moment we gather at the race pen, I know this would be easy peasy for Boon Xin and me.

Looking around, Boon Xin is easily a head taller than the other participants, all are so young and so short hee hee.

Kudos to the families who have decided to stat Sunday early and enjoy a healthy bonding opportunity.

I am going to keep my Cold Storage Kids Run tattoo for one more day

This is our first solo run, I hope the 800m will be a start for more runs to come. You may refer to our family’s running adventures here (tagged running).

 

I suspect the route might be even shorter, two turns and we are done. It was too easy for Boon Xin, she had only just warm up 🙂

Video (YouTube link) : We had Fun along the route, but we noticed many families were hogging the center lane too. If you are walking , keep to the left please.

 

Well done, 阿妹 (Ah Mei)!

Poster from Cold Storage website

Among the different running categories, there was a 2km Besties Trail for the toddlers. Instead of obstacle courses, there are various checkpoints for families to learn about nutrition.

.. and is this toddler cute or not? She was just following in her Daddy’s foot step, and she earned loud applauses from the spectators and volunteers.

More fun activities await families after their run. Refreshment, fruits and you can find popcorn and cotton candy too.

We heard some of the finishers did not got their medals, I hope the organisers will followup quickly.

We hope more families had enjoyed a Good Morning workout with family.

I am so proud of my girl and happy that she had decided to join me in a solo run. First Run with my girl yes!

(Given an option, she would prefer to shop with Mom or perhaps enjoy food trips)
