The very first Kyiv Color Run took place in 2014 with the efforts of the running club «KM Running club». Color Run (at the initiative of Trevis Sneider (USA)), is an annual event, held in 40 countries around the world and we are excited to be a part of a big international colorful movement. It all began with the very first run in Kiev involving 800 runners. In just 4 years the race grew to a massive celebration that attracts more and more people every year. Kyiv Color Run is about making great memories of celebrating the beginning of summertime, as well as taking colorful pictures, making new friends and gaining unforgettable experience. Our goal is to unite different people for the sake of sport and good cause and to make Kyiv a happier and brighter place. In 2018 we expect to see around 3000 participants and way more spectators.
Before the start every participant receives a special white running T-Shirt, a bib number and a bag of a real Indian holy powder. Charity merchandise is also available for purchase. Together with their families, friends and loved ones, runners celebrate the beginning of summer and Children’s Protection Day.
Children will also have their separate Kids race with presents at the finish line.
The race is untimed. Hundreds of runners can choose to run 3 or 6 km distance in the rain of holy powders. WOW – is the short description of the event.
Extremely important: Wear white T-Shirt at the starting line & finish covered in holy powder from head to toe.
After the race there will be a Kyiv Color Run Creative Awards for best costumes, DJ, lottery with valuable prizes from our partners, contests, flashmob and tons of unique photographs.
