Event Details

There will be several colour stations throughout the 3K & 5K race routes, where volunteers will douse participants with a different coloured powder. (Note: participants will have the option to detour these stations if they do not wish to be covered in the coloured powder.)

The 1K fun run obstacle course will offer safe jumps, tunnels and other features, along with colour stations, for children aged 8 years and younger.

A large colour explosion will take place on the hospital green space after the completion of the run/walk. Following a countdown, participants will throw their colour packet(s) into the air, while colour blasters cover the crowd in a rainbow-cloud of colour.


- Although the coloured powder is not intended to stain clothing, it may be difficult to remove from sneakers.

- The coloured powder is non-toxic but it is recommended that you keep out of eyes and mouth (we will provide each participant with sunglasses and mouth/nose mask).
