2013 – Year of the Snake and…Year of the ‘Fun Run’?

Featured

Sunday saw the ringing in of the Chinese New Year, celebrating the year of the snake! According to Chinese customs, your behaviour on New Year’s Day will set the tone for the year to follow, so for 20,000+ Sydney-siders, Cube team included, 2013 is set to be the year to embrace the ever-increasing popularity of the ‘fun run’.

Cube kicked off the Chinese New Year with the Swisse Color Run, battling the heat to complete the #happiest5k run, and that it was! The event did not disappoint and if our clothes were anything to go by, not to mention the blondes in the office and their stained pink hair, Cube definitely got in on the colour fun.

So if you want to train for a milestone fun run, raise money for a charity or just simply have a good time, we suggest earmarking some (or all?) of the upcoming fun runs in your diary and getting in on the action.

Remember, you don’t have to be a marathon runner to get involved – most events are open to all fitness levels and having a goal to work towards is always a good thing! A few suggestions for upcoming events are made by TimeOut below.
