Event's founder rubbishes online allegations that he deceived people
The founder of a wacky event where runners are doused from head to toe in coloured cornstarch has denied claims he deceived people into thinking it was for charity.
Color Run founder Travis Snyder, 35, rubbished the online allegations, calling them the "unfounded" rants of a "crazy person".
In an exclusive interview with The Sunday Times, the self-proclaimed "Captain of Fun" said it was never a secret that his event is held for profit and its charity element is but a means to give back to the community.
The Color Run - which has taken place in countries including the United States, Australia and China - flagged off in Singapore yesterday on its first South-east Asian stop.
