‘The happiest 5km on the planet’ returns to the Mother City on the 18th November, Saturday with the next round of the colourful superhero tour that is sure to create vivid memories. No superhero event is complete without making a difference to people’s lives, and Capitec Bank returns as headline sponsor of the event that aims to give back to host communities in a meaningful way.


Francois Viviers, Executive of Marketing and Communications at Capitec Bank says “Capitec continues to partner with the event because of the natural alignment of values and principles, namely, the celebration of diversity and giving back to the communities we operate in. The event is fully in line with our own CSI initiative of investing in South Africa’s people.”


Capitec Bank ensures that The Color Run is not just a one day event by donating R 10 of every ticket sold to a beneficiary school in each city across the most vulnerable of communities across South Africa.


What to expect at the event:

Aside from a vibrant, colourful run, Color runners have the option to receive free selfie prints. All you have to do is use the hashtag #BankBetterLiveBetter on Twitter or Instagram and visit the Capitec stand to collect your print. Color runners are encouraged to use the Capitec Magnetic Wall as a background to start snapping creatively.


Capture your happiness second by second. Color runners can use the slow motion booth in the Festival Zone to take a 15 second super-slow motion video that will be uploaded to Facebook straight away.


Have a blast running through clouds of colour and making a difference to the community in doing so. Don your capes, lace up your takkies and join us at the Color Run Cape Town.


Tickets are available online from The Color Run website(http://thecolorrun.co.za) and Facebook(www.facebook.com/TheColorRunSouthAfrica).
