For the first time in the UK the ‘Color Run’ took place at night. Featuring illuminated ‘Color Zones’, magical bubble zones, a blacklight zone and glow in the dark ‘Color Throws’, thousands of runners joined the ‘happiest 5k on the Planet’. Circling the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park the runners started in groups from 8pm. At the finish zone further explosions of colour (or ‘color’ – the event is a US brand) and music met the runners. Cash raised from the event went to the NSPCC charity.
