THE heavy downpour did not stop more than 10,000 runners from enjoying another unique racing experience in the Color Manila’s CM Blacklight Run Manila leg held at Filinvest City, Alabang last Saturday.
Celebrities such as Aubrey Miles, Sam YG, Ms. Global beauty queens, Ico Ejercito and Davao Aguilas FC players were among the thousands of participants who joined the much-anticipated non-timed race.
Participants got to experience the various color stations, as they wore their CM Blacklight headlamps that enhanced their blacklight experience. For those who joined the Rockstar and Challenge categories, they also had face paint applied on their faces.
Thousands of runners also partied until early hours of the morning during the Colour Festival, which capped their journey; wherein everyone threw colored powder up in the air, while everyone danced to the music.
“We are glad that we were able to gather at least 10,000 runners this evening and that the participants still got to enjoy tonight’s race, despite the weather. We hope to see everyone again in our next events in Bacolod, Laguna and Davao”, says Color Manila VP Justine Cordero.
