The Color Run™ 5K Newcastle
Color Runners! Thank you so much for a wonderful and colourful event in Newcastle! We look forward to seeing you again in 2014!
HOW DOES IT WORK?
The Color Run™ event is a one of a kind experience that is less about speed and more about enjoying a colour crazy day with your friends and family. For our events, it is about participants of all different speeds, ages, shapes, and sizes toeing the start line. Whether you are a casual morning mall walker or an Olympic athlete, the 5 kilometers of The Color Run™ course will be the most enjoyable real estate you’ve traveled in a VERY long time. (If you have more questions about how it all works, check out our “ABOUT” page.)
Rule #1 All participants are welcome… fast, slow, runner, walker, old, and young.
Rule #2 White shirt dress code at the official start line and ready to roll no later than 9.30am sharp!
Rule #3 Get completely covered in crazy coloured goodness at the finish festival.

We are thrilled to announce Swisse as the major sponsor of the Australian tour to deliver the happiest 5km on the planet here in Australia! The Color Run™ event is a celebration of being fit and healthy, and as Swisse celebrates life every day, the Australian-first event is the perfect fit.
The Swisse partnership also sees the beginning of a proud partnership with their recently developed Celebrate Life Foundation, which will support and manage the contributions from the event to our nominated charities across Australia.
Whilst we have appointed a major national sponsor in Swisse, event sponsorship queries can be forwarded to Aus.Sponsorship@TheColorRun.com
The Swisse Color Run is proud to partner with the Celebrate Life Foundation and Make-A-Wish® Australia as our joint major charity partner in Newcastle.
The Swisse Color Run is a commercial event which chooses to support charities. Each event supports a local charity partner, along with our national philanthropic partner, Swisse’s Celebrate Life Foundation.
As a for-profit event we are proud to give back to the local community, something we do not have to do, but we choose to do.
In Newcastle we will also support Make-A-Wish in their mission to make wishes come true for children with life-threatening medical conditions. In New South Wales, there are currently 95 wishes waiting.
We are all aware of the astounding ability of wishes to bring joy and life-long memories for children with life-threatening medical conditions. But an international study found they can do even more. 75% of the parents surveyed noticed an improvement in their child’s physical health, involving increased strength and willingness to overcome their condition, after the granting of their Make-A-Wish wish.
As part of the ‘Swisse Wish’, The Swisse Color Run and Celebrate Life Foundation invite you and your friends to support these courageous children and their families byregistering as an ‘Everyday Hero’ and raise funds by running for Make-A-Wish.
The Celebrate Life Foundation is passionate about Inspiring Wellness. We aspire to ‘bend the trend’ away from increasing rates of preventable disease by inspiring better Nutrition, Mindfulness, and Movement throughout all life stages. They support a variety of charities and not-for-profit organisations that have a focus on providing integrative programs that save and change lives. The events and programs that they support not only raise funds, but aim to remind everybody that life is precious and that we need to celebrate life every day. The Celebrate Life Foundation is a Public Ancillary Fund – Established October 2012, with Deductible Gift Recipient status and is a Not For Profit organisation. ACN: 160 257 241

Why haven’t you registered yet?
Well, this question is something only you can answer through deep thoughtful soul searching. Maybe you don’t like fun? Maybe you have an irrational fear of colour? Either way, in our expert opinion, we think you are plain LOCO if you don’t give this a shot! Our races fill up VERY quickly, so don’t say we didn’t warn you!
