Colour Run is coming to Sydney and Melbourne


On Sunday, November 10, Cathy Freeman Park at Sydney Olympic Park will come to life with all the hues of the rainbow and more with the happiest 5km run on the planet, The Color Run! Then Melbournians will have their fun under the sun with the ultimate 5km color fun run at Flemington Racecourse on Sunday, November 24. 

There’s no official finish time or winners, just a bunch of color runners gathering for a great cause and a good time. People of all ages and abilities are welcome to register and if you’re not a runner….no worries! You can jog, walk, skip or even cartwheel your way around the course! There are four dedicated, supercharged Color Zones (one placed every kilometre), where participants will be doused in color from head-to-toe. As the course is untimed, you can take your sweet colorful time to enjoy each zone at your leisure. You’ll start the race wearing white, but come out the other end covered in all kinds of wonderful hues. The color dust is 100% natural, safe and food-grade quality, so no nasties to worry about it. 

But the fun doesn’t stop once the run is over. Colour runners and spectators can then head to the Finish Festival, a larger-than-life party equipped with music, photo ops, activity booths, vendors, and more massive, Insta-worthy color throws. There’ll also be a 7-Eleven Playground with free Slurpees, fresh fruit, Krispy Kreme Doughnuts and coffee!

Color Run Australia’s official charity partner is the Starlight Children’s Foundation. Color Run encourages participants to raise funds and awareness for the charity, so you can do this by making a donation to the Starlight Children’s Foundation when registering online or you can also choose the option to fundraise via the Everydayhero platform when registering online. You can run as an individual, join a team or even create a team!

The cost to register an adult (over 18 years old) is $67, a child aged 5 -17 years is $50, a family of four is $185 (maximum 2 adults). If you’re running with a team of four or more, registration per person is $58. Kids under the age of 5 years old run for free. 

Included in your registration is a 2019 limited edition Love Tour Participant Kit complete with a super soft new love t-shirt, unicorn finisher’s medal, Color Runner buff, color packet, and two tattoos.
