Does the thought of going for a run make you yawn? Here is the solution. Go for a run which is more about fun than the run. The Swisse Color Run Series is about to begin in Australia, taking place in Melbourne, Sydney, Perth, Adelaide, Canberra, Newcastle, the Gold Coast and Brisbane.
The run is 5km and is all about colour and craziness. Here is how it works:
3) When the siren sounds runners jog, sprint, shuffle, dance or walk their way to the finish line getting doused colour.
Event dates vary from city to city. For more information on dates, locations and registration head to the website.

The Swisse Color Run Series is also the opportunity to raise money for the Celebrate Life Foundation which supports health and wellness charities throughout Australia. For more details about the charity money will go to and how to raise money click on your city.
If you think this all sounds wonderful but would prefer to enjoy the fun without the run, you can volunteer.
You'll be every colour in the rainbow when the run is finished.
