Want to put some fun in your run? The Lismore Colour Explosion Fun Run will be held again in October and everyone is invited to join in.
The second edition of the event at St John’s College, Woodlawn, is all about being outside having fun with friends and family and getting plastered with colour along the way. Funds raised on the day will go to Headspace Lismore, Yodifee House orphanage in Cambodia and the Parents & Friends Association of St John’s College.
President of the association Lisa Love says the run is a public event is open to people of all ages and fitness levels. ‘From first time runners to seasoned athletes, this event is about celebrating the beauty of our local environment on the Northern Rivers,’ says Ms Love. ‘We had almost 1000 participants last year. Everyone in the community is welcome.’
The course will meander throughout the picturesque countryside of Woodlawn College with colour powder points located along the course.
There will be free parking, a live DJ, food and coffee stalls, jumping castles and giant slide, BBQ, Headspace Lismore chill out zone, Solid Mob stall, Police and Rural Fire Brigade, the Cancer Council, St John’s Ambulance, a sweet stall and community services, culminating in a huge colour explosion finale.
Fundraising coordinator Louise Somerville says that participants can buy early bird tickets right now. ‘Numbers are limited for the event and the “early bird” offer closes on September 30.’
Ms Somerville says that you don’t have to run to get in on the fun. ’You can run, walk, skip or crawl the track, but if you want to be involved but don’t want to do the course, click on our volunteer button on the website. We need lots of wonderful volunteers!’
The Lismore Colour Explosion Fun Run will be held on October 27.
Parking will be open at 7.30am and the day should wind up by 1pm.
