Metro Manila was painted in an extravaganza of vibrant hues as thousands of runners joined Color Manila Challenge 2019 at SM by the Bay, Mall of Asia Complex on Sunday, August 18, 2019.
Color Manila has been pioneering some of the most colorful and festive runs since 2012. Their events have been much-awaited by runners and obstacle-enthusiasts in the Philippines.
With a variety of fun and innovative run concepts, Color Manila has successfully created a one-of-a-kind experience that effortlessly blends fitness, fun, and friendship among Filipinos.
As CM Challenge 2019’s co-presenter, Traveloka has intensified the fun and maximized the color spectacle with its activities and brand new obstacle courses. Everywhere they looked, runners found the signature Traveloka blue around the event area.
The partnership aimed to empower its participants to explore and discover the world. This is similar to how they would conquer obstacles set out for them at this year’s CM Challenge.
Traveloka serves as a reminder that the world is a spectacle of colors to be experienced, and that with the app and special promos, adventure is right at your fingertips.
The starting pistol was shot at 5 AM, beginning the race. While the runners conquered the obstacles in the challenge strip, Traveloka kept the fun going at the booth with exciting contests and fun activities for everyone.
