Colour 5K is a crazy fun run that anyone can take part in and enjoy. It's all about COLOUR & FOAM! Every kilometre you run or walk, you pass through a Colour Zone and meet a bunch of enthusiastic Colour Bandits who will do there best to cover your nice clean white t-shirt with coloured powder.
At each kilometre, a new colour is added until you reach the finish line and join up with all the other runners for the grand finale, 'The Colour Extravaganza'. This is a great event to enjoy with family and friends. There's also a mini 1k colour fun run for kiddies and parents.
