Get HAPPY on the Gold Coast this weekend at The Color Run!

By Lauren - Gold Coast Mum


The Color Run is super kid-friendly and is such an exciting, beautiful, joyful experience for parents to have with their children.

We have been counting down the days to this year's Color Run, being held Sunday 16th July, 2017, at the Southport Broadwater Parklands!

It is expected to be a fantabulous day - especially as it's a family friendly activity that we can all enjoy!

My brood (four little ones aged 7, 5, 3 & 3), as well as my Mum and sister, will all be enjoying the a
ll-new Tropicolor Zone™ on course, where we will be bathed in a tropical array of colours and delicious island scents as we pass through the shade of palm trees, arches, and island-style music.

Participants are covered in dreamy bursts of coloured powder, they dance through clouds of fairy-floss foam, bubbles and more.
Aiming to celebrate, encourage and inspire happiness, healthiness and individuality by providing a fun, friendly running environment, The Color Run really is The Happiest 5k on the planet.

At the Finish Festival, Color Runners will enjoy even more fun at Rainbow Beach, an interactive island featuring music, dancing, unique photo opportunities, and massive colour throws.

Each Color Runner will also receive a limited-edition Tropicolor race shirt, finisher’s medal on a floral-printed ribbon, embroidered headband, and fun temporary tattoos.

The event, now in its sixth year, focuses less on competition and more on supporting each other. There are no winners or official times.

New features in 2017:
• The younger runners will see a world of possibility and can dream of their place in that world; whether they want to be a superhero, a vet or a firefighter. This tour is about celebrating dreamers, young and old, and promoting healthiness, unity, individuality and happiness above all other things.
• Giant unicorns on course
• Magical new dream start tunnel
• One giant 5k party: More music than ever before
• All new dream wall: All participants can write their dreams on our giant dream wall for the world to see
• Dreamy new fairy-floss cloud coloured foam zone
• Fresh new photo opps (and more of them!)
• Dreamy new pastel colours

• New dream themed runners kit including:
o Exclusive new dream tour shirt
o The Color Run headband
o Temporary tattoos
o New colour-in runners bib
o New superhero capes for kids whose tickets have been purchased as part of a family ticket. Encouraging kids to dream, play, pretend and get moving in an exciting and inspiring way.
o Unicorn finishers medal

It doesn’t matter if it’s your first experience with The Color Run or you’ve been joining in for years, the Tropicolor World Tour will be the most memorable 5k of your life.

Hope to see you there!
Say hi via social media if you're there and hopefully we can cross paths!
