  One of Bangkok's unique attractions is the Phra Phrom, a statue with four heads and eight hands that is a representation of Brahma, the Hindu god. _(50)_ Consequently, it needs to be cleaned every 15 minutes. Thailand is home to millions of Hindu worshippers in Thailand, although the country is predominately Buddhist.

  It's a unique race that is open to all people, regardless of their ages or backgrounds. What's more, the event will be soon heading to Taiwan. What is it? It's The Color Run.

However, they don't stay that way for very long. At every kilometer of The Color Run, runners get dipped with colored powder.

It's easy to see how participants become covered from head to toe in different colors during this event.

  However, The Color Run is more than just about having crazy fun with colored powder. Organizers in each city team up with local and national charities in an attempt to raise the awareness of and shed light on important issues. In this way, the special run gives back to the community. Organizers of the international run hope in 2013 to surpass the one million-dollar mark in funds raised, beating the $600,000 raised the year before. As well, individuality, happiness and healthy living are other important themes that The Color Run adopts. It's also significant that The Color Run has the distinction of being the single largest event series in America since it was first run at the beginning of 2012.
