“The Color Run is bigger and better than ever, and that’s thanks in part to the fact that South Africa’s happiest bank, Capitec Bank, has come on board as the headline sponsor,” says Leon Swanepoel, The Color Run South Africa event producer.
Heart FM, the city’s biggest radio station, is the official media partner to The Color Run in Cape Town for the third consecutive year. Heart FM DJ’s will be on the decks to welcome Color Runners with awesome beats as the run gets under way.
Brighter, shinier and happier this year, with the introduction glitter powder, the event is designed to uplift and inspire runners to stand out from the crowd, sweat sparkles, and continue to live their lives in a happy and healthy way. Get ready for special shine elements at the Finish Festival. This is the year to unleash your inner sparkle!
“And, it is about so much more than just one day, which is why we are thrilled to have a sponsor that shares The Color Run’s passion for social upliftment,” says Swanepoel.
“Capitec Bank, like The Color Run, believes in health, happiness, individuality, giving back, living life in technicolour and having fun, while caring about the community,” says Charl Nel, head of communications at Capitec Bank.
Capitec Bank and The Color Run have partnered with Adopt-a-School Foundation and are donating R10.00 from every ticket sold to support education in each city hosting The Color Run. “To raise awareness for Adopt-a-School, we built a giant tekkie in which we will display the materials needed and purchased for the school identified in the area. The giant tekkie has been touring along with The Color Run, so don’t miss it in Cape Town!” says Nel.

About The Color Run
The Color Run is a feel-good, happy, colourful event. “Color Runners” of all shapes and sizes happily go from wearing pristine white clothing, to being covered in prismatic colour. At each kilometre mark, a different colour of powder fills the air and covers the participants, creating an ever-increasing spectrum of colour and beauty. At the finish line, the colour festival kicks off and the air is filled with millions of vivid colour combinations as participants get in on the colour throwing fun as well.
