No, these aren’t exactly pictures from some firang Holi party. The Colour Run is a five kilometre, un-timed race, held in cities across the United States and also worldwide, with the aim of promoting healthy living, and the organisers choose a charity to benefit in each of the cities the run visits.

Participants are doused from head to toe in different colours in the race -- also billed as the ‘happiest 5K on the planet’.

“If you are in this for a real RUN, you will likely be frustrated once it begins. People tend to stop and go and take selfies along the way, making it difficult to get a good, consistent running pace going. You can pretty easily avoid the colour if you want to... but that's no fun,” gothamist reports.

We bring in fascinating photographs from Colour Runs organised across the globe. Enjwaay!
