It’s March already, spring is on the way, trees are in blossom and there’s a lot to look forward to here in Granada including the first Holi Run through the city and of course the Easter processions of Semana Santa. There are some fabulous festivals as well this month with Japan in Granada Festival, an International Comic Festival and a Tango Festival, read on to find out what is happening this month.

THE HOLI RUN 19th MARCH 2016

The Holi Run is a five-kilometre race with a twist. The concept is simple: wear white at the starting line and get to the finish line covered from head to toe in colour. The Holi Run is unique to any other 5k race of its kind in that it promotes the idea of having fun rather than competition. 12,000 runners took part in a special Valentine’s edition of the popular event in Malaga with many people dressed up in outrageous costumes and alcohol was sold throughout the event, a foreign concept for your average sporting event. The fun continued after the run with an unforgettable fiesta. Music, dancing, on-stage performers and more colour throwing were all involved.
The Holi Run takes inspiration from certain aspects of the original Indian Holi Fest. The idea of bringing the community together on the basis that there are no distinctions between status, class, age or gender is a key characteristic of the traditional Hindu celebration. This was certainly relayed in Malaga where individuals and groups of all abilities, ages and nationalities attended, with even children and pets present. On 19th March the Holi Run will come to Granada and hopefully inspire us all to take to the streets and have some fun, even if we usually don’t run !
