About 12,000 runners took part in the second annual Dubai Colour Run.
Mostly made up of women (69 per cent) and novice runners, the event’s participants were doused in coloured powder as they wound their way around the autodrome.
Runners ranged from toddlers to a 73-year-old entrant. Many came in fancy dress, sporting wigs, tutus and facepaint.
The event was sold out several weeks ago, leading organisers to add another 3,000 spaces on top of last year’s 9,000.
