Sentosa was a riot of colours as The Color Run made its return to Singapore. 
Compared to the blazing sunshine that greeted the event last year, an overcast sky and thunder heralded the event yesterday. Not that it dampened the enthusiasm of the close to 9,000 runners taking part in the "happiest 5k on Sentosa Island". 
Today another 9,000 Color Runners will get their chance to turn their white T-shirts a myriad of hues as they are pelted along the route with coloured powder. 
At 4pm, the first wave was flagged off. At every 1km mark, runners were doused with coloured powder. Some runners even tried to gather powder from the floor to throw it at their friends.
