What happens at a Colour Blast?

You’ll join with hundreds of others and start the day in a white t-shirt, getting covered from head to toe in a rainbow blast of colours at each kilometre of the course. Oh and did we mention you don’t even have to run? You can choose to walk, skip or dance your way around if you feel like it. It’s all about the fun and what gives you the biggest smiles!
