The Swisse Color Run 2013

People of Cairns - get ready to get colourful! It's Far North Queensland's turn to pain the town red...and yellow and blue, green, pink and more when The Swisse Color Run comes to town on Sunday, July 28. Tickets will be on sale from Friday, May 24.

Based on the US phenomenon, The Swisse Color Run is a five kilometre fun run ...with a colourful twist.

Catering for participants of all ages and fitness levels and raising funds for charity, 'The Happiest 5km on the Planet' sees entrants showered in coloured powder at staggered Colour Zones, providing a truly unique way to celebrate life!

Once runners complete the course, the fun and festivities continue with the Finish Festival. A coloured extravaganza of epic proportions featuring music and a family-friendly party atmosphere, celebrations culminate in a mass throw of colour packets to create a cloud of rainbow colours.

Importantly, there will also be an area for runners to get cleaned up before leaving the venue.

The Swisse Color Run and The Celebrate Life Foundation will make a donation to a charity to be announced soon.

$55 per person, $50 per person in a team of 4+, free for children under 5
