Colour5k is one of the craziest fun runs you will ever experience and great to do with friends, family or colleagues. The aim is to have a good time: You can run, walk or stroll at your pace - speed is not a priority, colour is…..
Every kilometre there is a colour zone that runners pass through. Here, willing helpers known as the Colour Bandits shower you and your white t-shirt with our special 100% safe colour powder, with each colour zone having a specific colour. As you go, the colours build, until by the end of the course you have become a masterpiece.
