The spirit of Shanzhai, referring to Chinese imitation and pirating of brands and goods, has gone to the next level in Hongmei Town. On January 12, they ripped off the globally well-received Color Run and replaced the colorful powder with plain flour. But at least the runners were dressing in colorful T-shirts to keep up with the intended feeling. In the three “power stations,” over half a ton of flour in total was blasted at runners without mercy. More than 1,500 people joined the 5-kilometer flour run going through the landmarks of the town.
