On Wednesday 16th October, Ooredoo Maldives revealed the thrilling festivities to be held in the reclaimed suburb of Hulhumale’s annual Colour Run weekend, rescheduled for 30 November.
The telecom giant shared new updates for the run, outlining the weekend’s programs and timings:
Ooredoo Moodhu Majaa
‘Moodhu Majaa’ is a new entry to the Ooredoo Colour Run weekend, which entails a fun morning at the beach, with beach activities and exciting water sports. Ooredoo is partnering with cafes which will provide breakfast and local favorites such as ‘ambu majaa’ and ‘maskaashi’ typically enjoyed by locals at the beach.
November 29, 2019, from 0800 – 1000 hrs
Ooredoo Gudi Mahaasama
The kite festival will include fun displays, a kite workshop, a kite-flying competition, and an exciting race. Ooredoo stated that the aim of ‘Gudi Mahaasama’ is to revive the Maldivian tradition of flying kites with family and friends. Participants are not required to pre-register for the kite festival.
November 29, 2019, from 1600 – 1800 hrs
Ooredoo Colour Run
Ooredoo’s popular 5K aims to promote running as a fun way to achieve a healthy and active lifestyle, where runners are rewarded with a burst of color powder at each kilometer mark. Similar to the previous 5Ks, the Ooredoo Colour Run is not timed, and thus “participants can choose to walk, jog, run or dance to the finish line”, where they receive color throws and finisher medals while local musicians hype up the crowds.
Ooredoo further highlighted that while only pre-registered participants will receive medals, interested runners can also join the run in white t-shirts to take part in the fun experience.
November 30, 2019, from 1530 – 1800 hrs
Ooredoo Music Festival
Following the Colour Run, Ooredoo will round off the weekend with a music show, featuring fan-favorites from the Maldivian music industry including Habeys Boduberu, Mooshan, Zakittey and more.
November 30, 2019, from 2030 – 2330 hrs
The annual Colour Run of Ooredoo Maldives is highly popular with hundreds of people participating in the 5K. In Addu earlier this year, the company also organized another Colour Run competition that saw participants from both the southernmost atoll and across the archipelago.
