Abu Dhabi


March 25

Dear Color Runners, As you know, The Color Run Abu Dhabi, which was to be held on Saturday 25th March was cancelled due to severe weather conditions. The safety of our participants was – and will always be – our #1 priority, and the conditions were in no way safe to conduct an event of this scale. We arrived on site at Yas Marina Circuit on Wednesday (22nd) morning to begin our detailed venue preparations, monitoring forecasts on an hourly basis while doing our very best to ensure we were ready for first thing Saturday morning. As of Friday afternoon and into that evening, weather conditions were clear. Nevertheless, hours later the conditions changed considerably and the difficult decision to cancel the event was made early on the morning of the 25th due to high winds, threatening lightening, rain and an increasingly poor forecast. Weather conditions did not warrant cancellation until very early in the morning and notifications were sent out immediately via email and our social media channels, and updated on www.thecolorrun.ae We will therefore be offering all participants a complete refund of their entry fee, and any delivery charges and processing fees that may have been incurred. All items within the race packs and merchandise are yours to keep and enjoy. Below are the details on obtaining your refund: • Online Purchases o No action is necessary from your side and the refund will be processed automatically by ourselves. Refunds will be processed throughout this week and you will receive an email notification once this step has been completed by ourselves. Please allow 10-15 days from notification for the amount to be credited back to the card which was used to make the original purchase. The processing fee refund amount may take slightly longer to appear in your account. Please allow for up to 28 days. • Adventure HQ Purchases o Please visit any Adventure HQ from Tuesday 4th April until Tuesday 2nd May during normal store hours with proof of purchase (receipt or confirmation email) and photo ID of each participant in order to receive your immediate refund. • For those who purchased using cash at Yas Marina Circuit, please email info.uae@thecolorrun.com On behalf of everyone at The Color Run, thank you again for your patience and support. We’re looking forward to bringing The Color Run back to Dubai in early November this year and hope to see you in your colorful best then. The Color Run team

WOW! I cannot wait until The Color Run comes back to my city. It was seriously the best day. My friends and I had a blast.
My favorite part was the party at the finish line that had super cool photo ops, music, and a beach area with cool vibes!
The Tropicolor zone had big inflatable palm trees! My friends and I had so much fun this year. We love TCR!
The new Tropicolor tour is even better than last year! They had a sandy beach area at the end with huge inflatable beach balls. So fun.
The Color Run Tropicolor Tour is one of the funnest things my family and I have ever done. Very family friendly and super tropical.
