The fun filled and exciting Color Fun Run event returns this Easter weekend and will be held in Uganda’s adventure town of Jinja courtesy of Uganda Waragi. The 5km event that has participants run, jog or walk with a splash of color at every kilometer will be held at Heralds Ground on Saturday 15thApril, 2017 from 10 am till late.
The activity has no official winners, but rather chooses to celebrate the last five finishers; encouraging participants to enjoy fitness with a fun twist to it whilst being splashed in color along the way and having fun with friends.
The Jinja edition will start with the fun run kick off and thereafter feature a fun filled afternoon with activities like rugby, football, a live turntable deejay session with DJ’s Nimrod, Black Supremacy and Ruck on the deck and plenty of Uganda Waragi cocktails.
According to Uganda Waragi Brand Manager, Roy Tumwizere, the color fun run is a good fit for the brand, a true Ugandan icon fondly named the Spirit of Uganda. “Despite our differences and diversity, at our core we are vibrant, energetic and fun loving Ugandans. The color fun run offers an all-round fun experience that you would not want to miss.”
The event was first held last year and has so far had 3 editions, the first two in Kampala and the third one in Gulu town.
According to the organizers, the idea to take the event countrywide works well with promoting fun and adventure in tourism rich areas in different regions. “Color Fun Run was started with the purpose of encouraging fun and encouraging Ugandans to travel and see more of our beautiful country and what it has to offer. This is why the tour this year will go to Jinja, Kampala and Mbarara,” said Eric Omondi, the Color Fun Run Proprietor. Tickets are now available for purchase at MR. Price outlets in Kampala and selected shops in Jinja.
