Colour Blast 2018

Our annual Colour Blast 5K is back for 2018!

We’re returning to East Park, Wolverhampton for 5K of family fun on Sunday 1st July, and registrations are now open. It’s just £20per person to enter with our early bird offer but be quick, the offer ends when the first 250 participants have signed up!

What’s involved?

The Compton Colour Blast is a 5K route around East Park, taking you through several stations where you’ll be covered from head to toe in brightly coloured powdered paint. 

With no clocks to track your time and no official ‘1st place’ to claim, you can walk, jog or run the 5K, surrounded by your family, friends, and colleagues.

Once you’ve crossed the finish line, join your fellow Colour Blasters in the arena ready for the paint party. Throw your paint sachets into the air and dance as the colour rains down around you.

Check in party

Our check-in opens at 8am. Here you’ll collect your Colour Blast 5K commemorative t-shirt, perfect to wear on the day, your neon sunglasses and your free paint sachet.  Remember to bring your runner number, you’ll need this to collect your goodies!

Once everyone is checked in we’ll start our warm up, a combination of exercises, dancing and stretching led by a qualified instructor, to get you ready for the 5K route.

The route

After the warm up, take your place at the start line ready for the Colour Blast 5K to begin. Complete 2 laps around East Park as quickly or as slowly as you want, making sure to pass through all of our colour stations as you go!

The Colour Party

You’ve completed your 5K, now it’s time to celebrate! Grab your paint sachets and head towards the arena ready for our party to start at around 12pm. There’ll be extra paint sachets available to buy on the day to make sure your experience is as colourful as possible!
