The Happiest Run in the World...



Last week-end here on Langley Park we were sipping champagne and leisurely enjoying the French festival, yesterday it was a whole different ball game! You're going to have to pull the first three shots in to see what made me put them in sequence like this.. Check out the lady with the camera who starts the run just under the red cloud in the first shot and follow her exuberance through to the third and it will give you some idea of the fun thousands of Perthites participated in yesterday morning. Described as 'the happiest run in the world' the Colour Run never disappoints on any level.. the participants have the best fun and even though a for-profit event a large proportion of the money raised goes to charity, it's a win win!


I took so many photos trying to edit them was 'doing my head in' so I've picked out a few that I hope will give you an idea of the fun atmosphere.. as you can see I saved my favourite shot for last :) I know Aimee will agree with me when I say thank goodness the weekend is over.. we had a little bit too much fun! Happy Monday, take care and stay safe...

  3. There was a run here at 1 AM this morning to celebrate daylight savings time ending. The runners started and then ended in a time before they started if you get my drift. It was raining but there were still lots of smiles!

  5. You've captured all the fun so well. Personally the words "fun" and "run" couldn't be more mutually exclusive in my vocabulary, though I'm glad that others enjoy it so much - even if I do end up having to sponsor them so regularly!

  7. That's a riot! Is it a 5K or just run 'til you drop or 'til you get to the food tables? Looks an awful lot like one big party. I mean, really, I see a mariachi band in one shot! :))

  11. Looks like fun. I came across a color run in Savannah, Georgia, last year. Loads of fun for the participants and the photographers. I just knew I would see Aimee in the crowd!!

  15. I've heard of these, maybe I'll have to try one some day!

  16. That looks like fun indeed. I read that they used the wrong coloured powder here a few months ago, it was not washable and people couldn't clean their hair anymore and had to walk with blue and other colours in their hair.

  17. What fun. Now I'm pumped... I'm gonna go for a run myself now. (Hope no one shoots me though.)
