Holi Run, the happiest race on the planet reaches Valencia

Holi run is a race in which participants are showered with thousands of kilos of coloured dust brought from India in order to celebrate the coming of Spring. The race, which will be held in Valencia on April 2, will leave from the junction between the Les Barraques del Figuero and Adolfo de Azcarraga streets and will end at the same spot. Sports, joy, music and lots of colour. Five kilometres walking, running or dancing, covered in coloured powder. This is the Holi Run, a race without any age limits in which the only requirement is to dress in white and have as much fun as possible.

Inspired from the Holi Festival, or the Hindu colour festival, which celebrates the coming of Spring, the happiest race on the planet is intended to be a celebration rather than a competition. The goal is to move your body and to celebrate joy. This race is mostly held in India and Nepal, as well as in other regions of the world with a Hindu population. At the origin of this festival is an ancient religious festivity which, owing to its joyfulness, has managed to transcend the barriers of faith to the point of becoming very popular among non-Hindus.

‘Holi runners’ will have the chance to enjoy a race while being sprayed with various coloured powders from head to toe at every kilometre, every one of which corresponds to one of the five seasons of Holi Blitz, each one of which is marked by an arch in a different colour. The coloured powder used in the Holi Run is a 100% natural product that does not produce allergies and which is CE-approved. You can register for the race directly on the website of the event. Thousands of participants who have already run in this race recall it as one of the best experiences in their lives.
