Get ready to go full colour at fundraiser

People from across the region are invited to take part in “the happiest kind of run you can do” in Martinborough this month to raise funds for the community’s pump track.

Inspired by the Hindu festival of Holi – the “festival of colour” – the Martinborough Colour Run, held this Sunday, is the perfect excuse to get covered in paint, event organiser Charlotte Harding said, and boost the fundraising coffers to get the pump track over the line.

“We invite you to hop, skip, dance, walk, run, jump, whatever you want, around our short course and be targeted with colourful powder paint and end up a rainbow of colour,” Harding said.

“Bring a picnic. There’s going to be music, the bubble tea van from Featherston, and some food trucks.

“It’s going to be very relaxed, family fun.”

The Colour Run is back by popular demand after a successful inaugural event in 2019, Harding said.

“It was requested by the public as part of the pump track fundraising. And we wanted to create that vibe again.”

Raising money for the pump track project began about 18 months ago, and is progressing well, Harding said. The Colour Run starts at 3pm on Sunday, March 10, and participants will need to bring their own t-shirt.

Tickets can be purchased from www.eventfinda.co.nz, or at the gate. Tickets are $10 for under 13-year-olds and $20 for over-13s. A family pass can be purchased for $50.
