Our Abu Dhabi Shacks teamed up to run for something good at the annual Color Run (aka the happiest 5k on the planet!). The Color Run first hit the UAE in 2013 to support Daman’s ActiveLife organization (health and lifestyle organization aimed at promoting outdoor activity, healthy living and wellness). Today, the UAE has seen 6 runs with over 55,000 runners. Nice!
This year, the Abu Dhabi run had 8,000+ runners come out to hit the loop around Yas Marina Circuit (home to the Abu Dhabi F1). This event brings runners of all shapes and sizes with a variety of different skill sets. It’s all about fun! In addition to supporting Daman’s ActiveLife, The Color Run partners with JustGiving to raise money for charities around the world. Each runner donates $1 and may select 1 of 8,000 registered charities to contribute to.
