Qatar National Convention Centre is the place. Saturday, January 27 is the day. And, The Color Run™ presented by Sahtak Awalan: Your Health First, is the event! Qatar, are you ready to Dream In Color?

Color Runners are eagerly awaiting the fourth edition of The Color Run™ presented by Sahtak Awalan: Your Health First, the flagship public health campaign of Weill Cornell Medicine–Qatar (WCM-Q), with just over one month to go before the world’s happiest event takes place. This year once again, the popular 5K course will transport participants to a world where anything is possible, inspiring them to make dreams a reality.

Known to be the biggest and most colorful event that Doha has ever seen, this edition of The Color Run will have a one-of-a-kind theme: The Dream World Tour. Colors, music, running, jogging, skipping, and dancing will ensure that all participants will have an absolute blast!

During The Color Run™, participants can choose to run, walk, jog, or skip around the five-kilometre course with their family and friends. The brand-new Foam Zone will make Color Runners feel on top of the world, as they enjoy a brand new color and, as always, get covered from head-to-toe in an array of colors. After the course, participants can show their aspirations on the first ever Dream Wall and enjoy the ultimate color extravaganza with family and friends at the Finish Festival – featuring the world-famous color throws!

People from every part of the community in Qatar have shown their enthusiasm for living a healthy lifestyle, with over seven thousand participants showing up at the event in 2017. The Color Run™ presented by Sahtak Awalan is a unique race that celebrates health, happiness, and individuality by both empowering and encouraging participants of all ages and abilities to focus on their health and well-being. The excitement witnessed towards this wonderful event demonstrates once again Qatar’s vision to empower and inspire all to lead healthier and happier lifestyles, while still having fun in the process!
