When running colours are a good thing

Make exercise colourful this weekend at the St Joseph’s inaugural colour run.

The colourful adventure starts at 9am this Sunday, September 17 and everyone is encouraged to join.

The course is 2.5 kilometres and is designed to be the happiest 2.5 kilometres you'll run. 

Registrations are available online at the St Joesph’s Facebook page or contact the school on 6832 1588.

Organiser Jemeil Wallis said the school and community are excited for the event. 

There is a shorter course for those who feel overwhelmed by the 2.5 kilometre course.

“The course is designed so you can easily do a shorter distance if you have young children or it can be done multiple times, it is also stroller and wheelchair friendly,” she said. 

There will music, a free jumping castle, bacon and egg rolls and the Bogan Barista is rumoured to make an appearance. 

Early registrations get a t-shirt.

Mrs Wallis said while people can register right up to Sunday morning, she can’t guarantee last minute entries a t-shirt.

“Entry is $20 for adults, $15 for children and only an extra $10 for a colour run shirt,” Mrs Wallis said.

The St Joseph’s students are counting down to the colour run and excited that there is only days left until the event.

The year five students were all too happy to help fill the powder bottles on Friday afternoon. 

If you’re down at the Showground on Sunday morning make sure you say hi to the Nyngan Observer photographer and get your photo taken either clean or colourful, or both! Or send your photos through to grace.ryan@fairfaxmedia.com.au
