"The Color Run" is Back for a Third Year in Qatar

Following the overwhelming success of previous editions of The Color Run™ presented by Sahtak Awalan: Your Health First, that saw thousands of participants take part in this unique fun run last year alone, thousands are once again expected to join the fun on Saturday, January 28, 2017 at the Qatar National Convention Centre (QNCC) as the Tropicolor World Tour makes its mark on Doha.
Color Runners are promised a lively island-style experience complete with lots more fun and color, as they run, walk, dance, jog or even skip through the five kilometer course with their family and friends, whilst getting covered head to toe in color at every kilometer mark. Color Runners are encouraged to arrive at the QNCC on the day by around 7 AM, with the first wave of runners setting off at 8:30 AM.

Now in its third year in Qatar, The Color Run™ presented by Sahtak Awalan: Your Health First, encourages and empowers participants of all ages and abilities to focus on being healthy and happy in a relaxed running environment.
Nesreen Al-Rifai, Chief Communications Officer for WCM-Q, said: “The last two editions of The Color Run™ in Qatar were a wonderful opportunity to bring members of the local community together, as they loved every single minute of the previous events. Our Sahtak Awalan: Your Health First campaign really emphasizes taking the time to focus on you and your health but in a fun and relaxing way, which is why we have once again partnered with The Color Run™ for a third year running!”
Greg Sproule, Managing Director for IMG Middle East, the organizer behind the fast approaching event, said: “We are incredibly excited to open ticket sales for our 2017 event and have no doubt that our Tropicolor World Tour will be our most colorful event in Qatar yet! Whether you are a first time Color Runner or returning to the event for a second or even third year, there are plenty of reasons to get excited, so make sure to book your tickets early!”

Once Color Runners have purchased their tickets for next year’s event as part of a brand new race pack they will receive a tropical, new style t-shirt, funky embroidered headband, fun tattoos and a tropical flower lei. These items will be adding an extra splash of fun and color for friends and family to enjoy together while soaking up this island-style vacation in the heart of Doha.
