The Happiest 5km on the Planet
The Swisse Color Run is a unique 5km fun run with a colourful twist. It's coming to Perth in 2013 and promises to be a great day out for everyone, catering for people of all ages and fitness levels.

The Swisse Color Run event will be held in and around Perth's Langley Park on Sunday 17th February, 2013, starting at 9am. A fun, family day out, The Swisse Color Run gives participants the chance to not only have fun but to raise money for charity too.

Through the Celebrate Life Foundation, Swisse hopes to raise and donate over a million dollars to charitable organisations over the next twelve months.

First organised in Arizona in the USA, The Swisse Color Run has become instantly popular, attracting almost a million 'Color Runners' so far. Fun runs have been organised all over the USA and now runs are being planned for Perth and other states around Australia.

Inspired by the Hindu Holi Festival, a celebration to welcome Spring, runners are showered in coloured powder (which is all natural and safe) at each staggered Colour Zone of the run. This turns each runner into a rainbow of brilliant colour.

Enter the Swisse Color Run as an individual or get a team together for a day of fantastic fun and challenges. Register on-line at the Swisse Color Run website.

To register for the Swisse Color Run it will cost $55.00 per person or $50.00 per person for a team of four people or more. Children under the age of five years old can participate for free. This registration fee includes a white T-Shirt, a white sweatband, a race bib number, 1 colour packet and a temporary tattoo.

The Swisse Color Run event will need lots of volunteers to help make the day a great success. If you would like to be part of the fun but don't want to participate in the fun run, lend a hand as a volunteer.

The Swisse Color Run event is not just a fun run, it's a chance to compete and be the best you can be, to connect with family and friends, get active and have fun.

When the racing is all over the fun and festivities continue with the fantastic 'Finish Festival'. It's party time with a family-friendly celebration including plenty of music, dancing and food. Lots of fun to be had as participants and spectators join together in a fun, friendly and festive atmosphere.

This looks like so much fun. Still waiting for them to confirm if they will hold the event in Brisbane.
