Grab your friends, family and four-legged companions because regional Australia’s biggest fun run, Colour Frenzy, is back in 2020 and it’s bigger and better than ever.
The 5km run through a shower of coloured powder was attended by over 25,000 people across 12 locations around Australia in 2019 and now it's back in Bundaberg on 1 March.
Event director Clayton Bielby said it was a fun way to exercise, but Colour Frenzy was also so much more.
“Travelling around Australia’s great regional townships, the thing that unites them is their amazing character and positivity,” Clayton said.
“Colour Frenzy is a day to celebrate that in the most colourful, fun way.”
For the first time, in 2020 there’s a theme for that celebration.
“Put on your war paint and get ready because the theme of Colour Frenzy 2020 is ‘Warriors’,” Clayton said.
“We’ll be showing our love for the fighting spirit of regional Australia.”
Runners will also encounter fresh attractions during the race itself including a brand new obstacle section.
The hit of 2019’s Colour Frenzy, the bubble station, also returns with a “colourful” new spin.
And after the running’s done, you can relax and recharge at the Colour Frenzy marketplace, sampling music, food and drink, along with face painting and local arts and crafts.
Colour run an event for all
As in previous years, people of all ages and abilities can enjoy Colour Frenzy, choosing their own distance to run, walk or jog from 1km up to 5km.
While participants are having a blast, they’re also helping to support a worthy cause, with fundraising activities in place to raise money for local animal rescues.
“We’re aiming to raise $5000 for each local rescue and $100,000 nationwide to help animals in need find their forever homes,” Clayton said.
Colour Frenzy will be held on Sunday, 1 March at the Bundaberg Recreational Precinct, University Drive, Branyan from 8.30am.
Tuckets cost $35 for adults and $15 for children. More options are available here.
