The Color Run is an annual fun event in Adelaide, which encourages everyone to support one of the nominated charity organisations.
Please read below on what one of our student contributors, Shrompy has to say on the Color Run:
The Color Run—Tropicolor: At Victoria Park Racecourse, on 11 September 2016 Sunday, at 9am
“The Color Run is an entertaining party that’s 5 kilometers long, where you get to experience great music and colors as you pass through the track and have loads of fun. At the end of the run, you get to chill at the Finish Festival that has a Rainbow Beach. You can even try out throwing colors at others when you finish the run.
Runners will receive a numbers of things: The Color Run T-shirt, Headband and Wristband, bib, Finishers Medal and temporary tattoo. I suggest that you wear not-so-expensive running gear on your bottom half—in other words, pants/shorts and shoes that you wouldn’t mind getting colored (the colors are made from corn-starch and natural food dyes; they will wash out of your clothes). It might even be a smart idea to zip-lock your phone so that the powder doesn’t get into your electronics. If you feel that you need to protect your face, you can wear googles and face-masks. Should you wish to reserve the colors after the run, the organisers advise to spray the fabric with vinegar, let it dry and then iron it.
