Let's colour the campus!

A fun run around the grounds - skip, dance, walk or run, it's more about the memories you make than how fast you go! Everyone is welcome, no matter experience level or ability.

The perfect combination = active, fun and laughter!

All participants are encouraged to wear white

Please wear closed toe shoes and bring a change of clothes and/or towel

We recommend storing electronics in a sealable plastic bag

There will be various colour stations throughout the course. Volunteers will do their best to throw the powder at or below the torso however wind and other factors can cause the powder to get on the face, in case of irritation, rinse with water. You may wish to wear eye protection i.e. sunglasses. The colour powder is non-toxic, bio-degradable and environmentally friendly consisting of 98% corn starch and 2% food colouring. Participants with blonde hair are recommended to wear hair protection. Remove colour from body before using shower to avoid staining. It will wash out of clothing, however we recommend wearing light coloured that you don't mind being 'coloured'. After all it's what the event is all about!

For catering purposes as well as your colour run headband please register below!
