Johannesburg – Get your tutus and your tekkies ready because it’s almost time for the most colourful run in all of Mzansi.

The Color Run is taking place in Jozi this weekend (Sunday, 20 September) and it’s going to be the happiest dash by far.

So get in the mood, grab your sunnies (you’re going to need them) and get ready to have loads of fun.

Here are 5 things you’ve quickly got to know before you go:

1)    Set your GPS:

Pull out your GPS and punch in: Roosevelt High School, Emmarentia Dam, Corner 5th Ave & Thomas Bowler Street. That’s where it’s all going down.

2)    Tick-Tock:

Be there at 09:00 because the run kicks off at 10:00! Then take your time and enjoy what they’re calling the happiest 5k on earth.

3)    Don’t forget your ticket!

Tickets are R245 if you buy it online. BUT that includes a R200 Takealot.com voucher and a R200 Superbalist.com voucher and loads of other goodies. Kids under 10 run for free. Get your tickets here.

4)    What should I wear?

Come wearing your Color Run kit provided in your race bag, plus anything else you fancy to make yourself even more Color Run-ready. Rumour has it that tutu’s, wigs and fairy wings make you run even faster.  (Pickup your kit on Thursday 17 September or Friday 18 September between 10:00 and 19:00 at Rooseveldt Park High School. More info here.)

5)    Will there be an ATM?

Capitec will be providing an ATM at the festival zone, but you might want to bring some extra cash for official Color Run merchandise, extra powder sachets and of course something to eat and drink.

Go out and have fun! Remember to tag all your colourful selfies with #CapitecColorRun!
