Start Window

All Color Runners get ready in the start chute at 1:45am, start gun goes off at 14:00 to start The Happiest 5km in Pretoria (did we originally say 10:00? Opps our boo-boo, it’s actually 100% 14:00… 2pm… honestly. Promise).

Each batch starts 3 minutes apart and you’ll head off in each batch with approximately 500 new friends. It takes 1-2 hours to run or walk the route and then into the festival zone where you will enjoy music from awesome DJ’s, local acts, best-dressed competitions, food and drink and you guessed it, more color!
