The Color Run was back at the stunning south coast location of Wollongong where 3,000+ runners experienced a morning filled with fun, laughter and of course… COLOUR!
This year The Gong redeemed itself by putting on a weekend full of beautiful weather, sunshine and comfortable temperatures, which was a 200% improvement on last year where the event site was a mud pool and all worked in pouring rain.
Held at Stuart Park again, the runners made their way along a scenic course mostly overlooking the ocean as they embarked on Tropicolor Color Zones, normal Color Zones, Foam, Water and wet stations, and got to take selfies at all the tropical features which made you feel like you were on holidays in Hawaii.
A unique American concept by origin, The Color Run (TCR) is focused on fun instead of performance. It’s all about music, colour and madness as runners make their way through the 5km run, being bombarded with a different colour powder every kilometre to finish into an even bigger colour mania called the Finish Festival. Here, the runners get a chance to drench themselves, and everyone else, in even more colour by throwing their own colour packets around, all the while dancing and singing along to the latest tunes being played on the main stage by a DJ.
3vent is contracted by The Color Run Australia to provide Course Management at each event around Australia including providing a Course Manager and area supervisors.
