The world’s most vibrant 5km race is coming BACK to Sydney... and tickets available mid-year

Inspired by the Hindu festival Holi, where it is tradition to throw natural coloured powders as the seasons change from winter to spring, the Color Run (which started life in the US, hence the spelling) is coming to Australia.
The vibrant and lively race has run through 30 cities in the US over the past year, and this year expanded into the southern hemisphere. You were probably there at Homebush in February, getting your Instagram on with all the other rainbow-coloured sweaters. And if you were, you'll be happy to hear the run is coming back this August. And it's setting up in Centennial Park.
How does it work? At the start of the race, each runner wears white and as they pass each kilometre marker they are blasted with a different colour of (completely harmless) paint. There's a white dress code, for obvious reasons.
