Colour Blast 5K


Get ready because our Colour Blast 5K is back, this year for 2 days!

That's right, the 2017 Colour Blast 5k is back for two days, it is open to everyone and best of all under 5's go free!

Enjoy spending a morning being blasted in colourful powdered paint with your closest friends, family members and colleagues.

The event will begin at approx 1000hrs when you start a 5K route with colour blast stations along the way! Finishing in our arena you will then take part in the biggest colour blast party you’ve ever seen.

There are no official clocks to keep your time nor will there be any 1st place for runners to claim (you’re all first place in our book) making it an ideal event for anyone to participate in whether you’re a seasoned marathon runner, feel like running your first 5K or just fancy strolling along with the family.

You may run, jog, walk, hop, skip or jump the route, all you have to do is show up and have fun!

Each participant will receive some sponsorship forms, sunglasses and a commemorative white Colour Blast 5K tshirt to wear on the day of the race.  Participants will also receive a complimentary colour packet to use in the colour party celebration.
