As you can tell from our packaging, you’ll know that we love colour here at The Protein Ball co, so what better event to be a part of than the Color Run UK on Sunday 8th July.
It was a glorious sunny day in London, and after setting up our stand, our ‘rollers’ mingled with the entrants and spectators alike handing out samples of our delicious, healthy protein snacks to all participants.
There were make-up artists on hand to glitter up faces, instructors leading warm ups + unicorns handing out smiles!
The route took place in and around Wembley Park and at every km marker reached, volunteers hurled handfuls of coloured chalk powder at runners creating a storm cloud of vibrancy.
A new addition this year was the foam zone at the 4km mark. It stretched over a few hundred metres and covered everyone in knee deep fluffy white foam. Of course that then made for a perfect wet base for the paint throw in the final zone where the volunteers threw paint over finishers heads; the ones who didn’t think they were coloured enough proceeded to roll around on the floor to coat themselves some more!
The fun continued at the end with what was called the Finish Festival; an amazing mix of DJ’S playing thumping tunes to get the crowd going, all while throwing out sachets of colour + creating rainbows in the sky.
Everywhere you looked there were smiles + dancing + laughter. We had a blast!
