Don’t forget to wear white to the Fiesta de Color afterwards
If you’re looking to attend a fun and colourful event this weekend, the town of Albatera could just be the place as it will celebrate its first-ever Holi Run this Sunday.
For those wishing to take part, you must register by Friday 6 July by giving your details at the tourist info office in Albatera (Plaza de España, 1). Entry tags will be handed out an hour before the start of the race.
The race itself is in fact very short at 1,5km, and participants can opt to run or walk. This is partly, due to the heat and also because the main event is actually the big Fiesta de Color party afterwards!
Everyone, including those running in the race, are invited to attend wearing white, as along the route, huge containers will spray coloured powder into the crowd, as is traditional with the Holi Run in any location.
Date: Sunday 8 July 2018
Place: Leaving from the Parque Unión Musical La Aurora
