A dash of colour

COLLINGWOOD Park, usually a venue for footy and cricket, was awash with colour on Sunday as the Albany Colour Dash kicked off from 2.30pm.

Kids and adults above the age of 10 dressed in expendable clobber to tackle the 1200-metre obstacle course and see who could get most colourful by the end of the day.

After the dash, participants were rewarded with a free-form rainbow splash in a specially arranged mosh-pit of technicolour powder.

The first Colour Run was originally held in Phoenix, Arizona in 2011 with 6000 participants.

Since then it has been held in some form in more than 50 cities worldwide to raise money for a plethora of charities.
