For the first time ever, one of the world's most unique 5km runs comes to Birmingham and is set to light up the city this Saturday...
'The Color Run' is a one of a kind experience that is less about speed and more about enjoying a colorful and crazy day with your friends and family....and it's been no surprise that it has been a huge hit with our supporters!
Amongst the thousands that are set to line up to run this Saturday, there will be almost 100 runners lining up who have been raising money for Cure Leukaemia.
A fantastic 70 employees from the Birmingham based office of The Binding Site will be running in their Cure Leukaemia t-shirts and aim to raise £10k as part of their epic event of challenges which has been organised by the employees. We caught up with some of those taking part in The Color Run to find out how much they are looking forward to it...
