Color Run, the happiest colorful running on the planet, kicks off in Beijing International Garden Expo on August 10th.

During the five-kilometer-long race, the runners will be sprinkled by color powder which is made of corn starch every time they pass a color station. After the runners finish the running, all of them will be covered in different colors.

Even though the temperature reached nearly 40℃(about 104F)outside , the heat wave did not stopped thousands of enthusiasm runners taking part in their crazy running.

After bringing its joy and fun to the US, UK and Australia, it is the first time that the Color Run comes to China.
