Surf, Sun, Color, and Fun All in One Run!
When I think of fun runs, there’s only really one name that sticks out in my mind. That’s Color Manila. Color Manila Run has been a phenomenal experience of vibrant colors in the Philippines. Thanks to this chromatic organizer the country has experienced an explosion of color, healthy vibes, and unmeasurable fun! Now, Color Manila takes it’s exciting and healthy fun run to another destination! Look back at the experience of CM San Juan, La Union run!
The run took place last September 30, 2017 at the Dusit D2 Waves Hotel and Resort. CM aimed to blast Panicscian, San Juan, La Union with lively colors, and they did not disappoint! The CM Fun Run was able to unite participants from different walks of life at the Surfing Capital of Northern Philippines and rewarded them with the soothing rhythmic sound of waves and a spectacular sunset at the end of their run.
The Rewarding Experience of CM San Juan
Runners ran on 3k, 5k, or 7k routes along the picturesque and panoramic Ilocos Region turf. Which honestly is a great sight to feed the wanderlust and excitement of any fledgeling or fanatic runner alike. CM San Juan, La Union enabled runners to experience the powdery soft sands of La Union as they sweat it out through the routes of the fun run. This untimed run allowed participants to finish at their own pace. Once they crossed the finish line they were treated to the Color Festival which allowed them to sing, dance, and through color to the beat of the latest hit tracks blasted by the DJ. An awesome way to end an event wouldn’t you say? They really make sure that you enjoy your time when attending one of their events!
“At Color Manila, we want the festive and fitness-induced feeling in a colorful fun run to boomerang all throughout the archipelago. We love how touches and tinges of radiant color powders could paint smiles on Filipinos’ faces in each city or province we visit, and we want to see that here in La Union as well! To those who think San Juan, La Union is just for surfing enthusiasts, it’s about time you see this picturesque paradise in the fun runner’s vantage point through CM San Juan, La Union! Together, let’s prove that it’s really more fun in the Philippines, especially when you explore it through colorful fun running with your friends and families!”
The event had different packages. Participants chose from the Deluxe, Rockstar, and Superstar kits. The Deluxe kit comes with a Dri-FIT shirt, race bib, sunglasses, color packet, and finisher’s medal, and only costs Php750, while the Rockstar kit valued at Php1,050 and already includes a Dri-FIT shirt, race bib, sunglasses, drawstring bag, headwear, color packet, and finisher’s medal in its package.
