Color Manila Launches Blacklight Tour

Wazzup Pilipinas!

Manila, Bacolod and Davo will soon be lit via blacklight as thousands of runners are soon to join Color Manila's Blacklight Run Tour happening soon.

The first CM Blacklight Run will happen at Filinvest in Alabang. You can check out the video invite we got from the two founders of Color Manila, which may not be the very first fun run organizers that grew into an epic series but it is undoubtedly the most "colorful" one indeed.

The organizers has truly lived up to its name as even their race singlets deserve more than a second look for its very attractive designs. 

I've seen runners carrying lights on their heads from other runs but Color Manila brings it one level above by making it a black light instead. I'm sure to take advantage of the black light, there will be neon colored shirts and props within the race venue to make it a really awesome spectacle of blacklight-lit items.

Though the Filinvest area is quite far for me, I'm tempted to join the run. I just hope there won't be a conflicting event happening that day which will prevent me from joining.

Running enthusiasts will surely put this run in their itinerary. We have to give credit to those who are thoroughly obsessed with running as I could see significant improvements in their physical looks especially with their health. This are worth mentioning since the benefits would make you a better person. Just don't exert beyond your capability as too much of everything is also bad.

An media launch was held on May 2, 2017 at the F1 Hotel locate din Bonifacio Global City in Taguig to officially announce the Blacklight Tour so media and bloggers can start sharing the news for everyone's information.

Now on its fifth year, Color Manila has established itself as the most aggressive ‘concept fun-run’ organizer in the country. Over 120,000 runners have participated in its various franchises, which include the CM Challenge, CM Blacklight Run, CM Costume Run, CM Glitter Run, and CM Classic Run. It has broken its own record with its biggest event to date, CMR5, which had 12,000 runners that participated last January 2017.

Color Manila ambassadors were on stage during a sort of open forum or dialogue to share their insights and thoughts pertaining to the run. Many would see that these fitness and health enthusiasts consider running as a motivational element to keep their lives in place. Needless to say, participants of fun runs also bring home with them the pride of able to finish a certain run which they achieved by keeping themselves disciplined and determined enough to reach their goals.
