The Colour Run track

An ideal place to host a colour run is first of all safe for all runners and spectators. Places like a park, sports club grounds, school
playground, city square work perfectly fine as colour run track. Most colour run organizers choose a length of approx 5 km. But you can
decide this for yourself. Sometimes for kids a little shorter track works better. Organize colour run and have fun!

Colour Run station

At each colour run station 1 specific color of powder paint is available. Depending on the number of participants there are volunteers present to throw the coloured powder on the passing runners. Squeeze bottles, cups, shovels can be used to throw the holi colours on host colour runthe passing runners. Get the colour run station ready on time and instruct the volunteers not to aim for peoples faces. You can mark the colour stations with flags and blow-ups.
