Listen Up Exercise Dodgers! This Run Might Just Be The Happiest 5k Ever

share on:

For quite a large number of us, the thought of spending a Sunday going for a run fills us with dread. After five minutes of unenthusiastic panting we’re just about ready to give up… Well, you won’t believe this, but Secret London has found a surefire way to help you really enjoy exercising! 


The Color Run is a fun, friendly 5k that will have even the most dedicated exercise dodger actually enjoying themselves while running! While The Color Run‘s name might be American – yes we know it’s colour with a ‘u’ – in true British fashion this run isn’t about winning, it’s about taking part! Expect live music, foam clouds and multicoloured paint fights.


This event is literally just one giant party (exercise gives you endorphins and endorphins make you happy, right?) so don’t expect to see any stern-faced, lycra-clad serious runners about. This day is all about having fun! It doesn’t matter if you walk, run, skip, roly-poly or cartwheel your way around the course, because the event isn’t timed and nobody’s going to bat an eyelid if you don’t beat your ‘personal best’. You’re going to want to take the time to enjoy it!


The Color Run takes place in Wembley Park at 3pm on Sunday the 11th June. That’s less than one month from today, so there’s plenty of time to ‘train’ (wink, wink) for this one! Get your tickets here.
