Twelve Thousand Runners Join Color Manila’s Sold Out Color Manila Run Year 5
COLOR MANILA, the country’s biggest ‘concept fun-run’ organizer, just kicked off its fifth year with a sold out event at Mall of Asia (MOA) Grounds last January 8, 2017.
The COLOR MANILA RUN YEAR 5, which had a ‘tribal concept’ had 12,000 participants who witnessed fire dancers, break dancers and of course, the infamous ‘Color Manila Festival’.
The New Year’s theme was also carried over in the program, with hosts which included Sam YG, who yelled to the huge crowd “Are you ready for a fresh start, a new life for 2017?”
TV Host Karylle, who has been consistently joining COLOR MANILA RUN says, “I join the run every year because of its great vibe, it has the New Year’s vibe, such great energy. You can come with friends and have a colorful, messy, but happy start for the year; at the same time, make positive changes in your life.”
Volcanoes’ Chris Everingham, COLOR MANILA ambassador says, “It is an amazing run, it is just a great event to be in. If you want to kick off your year, it is the best way to do it. There’s party, there’s color, there’s people; it is just all rolled into one.”
Celebrities who were also spotted during the event include Gerald Anderson, Jake Cuenca, Kuya Kim, Sheena Halili, Ms. Earth winner Angelia Ong, Valerie Concepcion, Ico Ejercito, Dyan Castillejo and Melissa Gohing.
Justine Cordero, VP of COLOR MANILA says, “Expect more events from COLOR MANILA this 2017 and of course, onwards. We already have events planned out for Cebu, La Union, Ilocos Sur, Tanay, Clark, etc. We are also planning our first overseas event, which will be in Dubai.”
