Colour Me Happy Run  

Thank you for supporting the 5th annual Colour Me Happy Run which helps to build basic schools in rural Jamaica.

Race day is Saturday, September 15. Follow our tips below to get the most fun experience ever!


Registered on or before Wednesday, September 12?
If YES, collect your race packet from your selected Mailpac Express pick up locations (109 Old Hope Rd, Kgn 6 | Shop #9, Lower Manor Park Plaza, Kgn 8 | 12 Altamont Terrace, Kgn 5) or Running Events Jamaica, 87-89 Tower Street, Kingston on Thursday, September 13 to Friday, September 14 from 11:00am - 5:00pm.
If NO, collect your race packet at Hope Gardens on Saturday, September 15 between 10:00am to 2:00pm ONLY.


Get to Hope Gardens for an energetic pre-race warm-up with Kamila McDonald at 3:30pm. Parking is accessible through the Hope Pastures entrance on Gibson Boulevard as well as the Old Hope Road entrance into the Gardens. All roads leading into Hope Gardens and along the race route will be closed to vehicular traffic between 3:45pm to 5:00pm. Click here for the race map.


Colour Me Happy will once again feature MYLAPS chip timing. Do not bend or fold your race bib as this may damage the chip, which will affect your race time. You must cross the mats at the start and finish in order to get an accurate race time. The number one complaint, "I didn't get a chip time" is solved by, not covering your bib at race start and also, starting/stopping your watch, and not jamming up close to others while crossing the timing mats at the finish line. Our Chip Timing Guidelines will tell you more.


Party up to 9:00pm with music by DJ Tyler and Richie D. All Colour Me Happy entrants have FREE access. Non-registrants can pay $1,000 and enter the party at the gate.


Despite having a race-ready medical team in place, we sincerely wish to keep them idle. As always, please run within yourself and listen to your body. Should you feel any discomfort during the race, go to the nearest aid station or to the nearest course marshal and ask for assistance. In case of emergency, PLEASE CALL (876) 351-6956 for immediate assistance. This number is also printed on your race bib.


Use hashtags #CMHRun, #ColourMeHappyRun, #ColourMeHappyJa to share your race day experience on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram!

See you on Saturday!
