The Course:

The event course length will be approx 4km of almost flat course, through the beautiful Golf Course.

The event will start at the Myrtleford Golf Club

Jogging strollers will be suitable

Participants using wheel chairs or mobility devices are advised to contact the organiser prior to the event for more information.

What about the Colour?

The colour powder is corn-starch with food grade dyes however it is recommended that you wear sunglasses to avoid any irritation caused by powder in your eyes

The colour powder does generally wash out of hair and clothing. It is recommended that you do not wear clothing you do not want to get stained.

The colour may stick to lighter hair – if you are worried we recommend you take precautions! We do not take any responsibility for additional costs associated with the removal of colour.

If you want to keep the colour in your running shirt, spray it with vinegar, let it dry and then iron it, the colour will eventually come out in the wash though

If you want to take photos during the event we suggest you carry your phone or camera in a clear plastic bag

We suggest you bring a towel for the travel home to sit on. It might help stop the spread of colour in your car.

After Run Celebration

After your run/walk please join us back at event centre to listen to some of our local young musicians and support our local service clubs by purchasing food and drink.

Car Parking
