Giveaway: Durban Color Run entries

They call it “The happiest 5K on the planet” – it’s Color Run time!
The Durban Color Run starts at The Green Hub, Blue Lagoon at 10am on Sunday the 12th of July.
Runners of all shapes, sizes and fitness levels will start off kitted out in pristine white clothing and at each kilometre mark, will be doused in coloured powder – perhaps even some surprise glitter bombs await!
The race is the single largest 5km event series in the world – last year over 300 races in over 50 countries were run. The coolest thing about it, is it’s not about the running – it’s about the FUN!

Kids are welcome to join you – in fact they’re encouraged and entry for them is FREE!

    I have ostioparosis, and if I had to win the tickets, I would like to take my twin sister with me, we have been together most of our lives that’s how close we are, I would not be able to run but walk, but it would be worth it, this is something that would be good for both of us, this is something I have been wanting to do for a long time, but never had the opportunity. So I would love to win tickets.
