After the success of the inaugural event in 2022, you are invited to join the First Days Colour Run - suitable for all the family.

This is fun, not a race! You can walk, run, dance, crawl or hop your way around the 2.5km course - once or twice. There will be four colour stations around the course where you will emerge a different colour to the one you started with the help of the  "colour throwers" who will be throwing paint between your shoulders and feet!

Your entry includes a white t-shirt which you collect on the day. You can be pretty confident that it won't still be white at the end of the event...

Coloured paint will be thrown at you at each paint station - if you wish to purchase additional paint to throw amongst yourselves, packets are available to purchase in advance or on the day.

Safety precautions:

  • All entrants must wear eye protection in the form of sunglasses or goggles - there is an option to purchase sunglasses in advance or on the day.
  • Coloured powder is not to be thrown into faces, always aim for the shoulders and lower.
  • For safety reasons, all children under 14 must be accompanied by an adult onsite at the event.


What is the colour powder being used?

The coloured powder used at the event is made from food grade cornstarch. As with any substance, the aim is to keep it out of your eyes and mouth - the colour ninjas will be aiming for shoulders and lower.

Colour Beer & Donuts

Not only will there be coloured paint at the event, Phantom Brewing will be onsite with an event specific colour brew beer! Unholy Donuts will be onsite with a colourful donut you've never seen before, available to purchase.
