The Colour Run, Sydney Australia

What's the best thing to do on a Sunday morning for a photographer? Got up early for the colourful 5 km run on the planet. I didn't run, I was there to document the event as an unofficial photographer/videographer. But more importantly I was there to enjoy my Sunday morning with 50,000 plus colour runners in Sydney.

Someone was very entrepreneur to came up with this idea and people bought in drove. People were paying over $50 for an adult to participate in the event. I must admit it was fun and something different from your ordinary jog or run, but making big money on a simple idea. My hat off to the entrepreneur that came up with the idea. How come I wasn't the first to come up with that idea?

I think there's better ways to spend that money in my opinion rather than going to a profit organisation. Is "The Color Run" company done anything to give back to the community like promoting exercise since obesity in Australia is the highest in the world. Yes we have beat the American in that area. Go bush walking or to a beach, play with mother nature and it's free. Give your hard earn dollars to a better cause that just my 50 cents take on it.
