Dive Into The Rainbow The Colour Frenzy Run Experience

As participants flocked to John Breen Park last weekend, the atmosphere was ablaze with excitement and anticipation. Families, friends, and even furry companions eagerly awaited the start of the Colour Frenzy Run, ready to immerse themselves in a kaleidoscope of hues and a day filled with vibrant experiences.
The exciting event, known for its burst of colours and festive atmosphere, promised a 2.5km or 5km journey filled with laughter, joy, and plenty of hues. With each step, participants knew they were not just embarking on a fun run or walk, but also supporting a noble cause – raising funds for Animal Rescue across Australia.
The Colour Frenzy team, fuelled by their passion for furry friends, set an ambitious goal for 2024: to raise $5000 for a local rescue and a combined $250,000 nationwide. It was a mission close to their hearts, and they knew that every stride taken, and every burst of colour unleashed would bring them closer to their target.
The fun run sent waves of colour enthusiasts dashing through a whirlwind of obstacles, foam, and of course, colour, colour, colour. At each Colour Station, participants were splashed with extra doses of pops of powder, transforming them into living works of art. The highly anticipated Bubbles Station brought squeals of delight as bubbles danced through the air, adding an extra layer of whimsy to the event.
As participants crossed the finish line, they were greeted with cheers, applause, and beautiful Colour Frenzy Finisher Medals – a symbol of their accomplishment and their contribution to a greater good. Even the doggos, adorned in their own vibrant hues, joined in the celebration, wagging their tails in delight.
