Taiwan Color Run

September 28, 2013

About 15,000 runners took part in the five-kilometer Taiwan Color Run at Dajia Riverside Park on September 28, 2013 in Taipei. This is the first time the event, held just for fun, has taken place in Taipei. The Color Run is an un-timed race in which thousands of participants are doused from head to toe in different colors at each kilometer. The run has expanded since it's debut event in January of 2012 and is expected to grow to over 100 events in different cities and over a million participants this year. (Yahoo News)
