Event description

Description

FUN, DANCING, RUNNING, SKIPPING, MUSIC, LAUGHTER and plenty of COLOUR!

The KidsOut Colour Dash is being hosted at Drayton Manor Theme Park on the 30th September. A great day out for family and friends, it’s not about how fast you finish but how much fun you have!

You’ll not only have an amazing time but you’ll leave with a T-Shirt (covered in colourful paint powder) a medal and you’ll even get access to the theme park on the day. What better way to relax after a run than to cool off on Stormforce 10 or fly around on G-Force!

See you there!

FAQ’s

What is a Colour Dash, you ask?

The Colour Dash is a 5K route around the park and grounds of Drayton Manor Theme Park, taking you through the campsite, woods and even the zoo! At strategic points along the route there are colour stations, where KidsOut volunteers will be primed and ready to cover you in 100% non-toxic powder paint! You start the race with a clean white t-shirt, but that's certainly not the way you'll finish it! The more colourful you end up, the better!

What does my entry cost cover?

The cost of entry INCLUDES access to the theme park for the day once you've finished the race! It also includes the cost of your race pack, and all paint around the course, and all profits go to KidsOut.

What is included in my race pack?

Your race pack will include your KidsOut t-shirt, as well as a small packet of your own paint powder to throw around the course! Colourful items, as well as KidsOut Colour Dash merchandise and additional paint packets will be available to purchase on the day. PLEASE LET US KNOW WHAT SIZE T-SHIRT(S) YOU WILL REQUIRE BY SELECTING THE APPROPRIATE OPTION WHEN YOU PURCHASE YOUR TICKETS!

What are the timings on the day?

Registration will open at 8am, please bring your Eventbrite ticket and this will release your race pack. Unfortunately we are unable to send out race packs prior to the event. The race will begin at 10am, please make sure you arrive early to give yourself plenty of time to register and enjoy the pre-race entertainment!

Can anyone take part?

The event is open to anybody regardless of your running ability - all that matters to us is that you turn up, enjoy yourself and leave covered in paint! The event will not be timed as we want the focus to be on enjoying the route not your running ability and performance. Unfortunately, due to the nature of the event with the paint and varying terrain, we cannot allow anybody under the age of 2 to take part in the event, and under 16s must be accompanied by an adult. Additionally, pets are not allowed, and the route is not suitable for push chairs.

Do I have to raise sponsorship?

We would be very grateful if you would like to raise sponsorship for the event. KidsOut receive no government funding, so the charity relies solely on self-generated funds. Please email info@kidsout.org.uk to request a sponsorship form. Of course, we understand that not everybody is in the position to be able to raise sponsorship, so you won't be penalised if you are unable to raise any sponsorship.

A £1 donation could buy a child a KidsOut hat on the National Rotary KidsOut Day

A £5 donation could buy a child's lunch on a FunDay

A £10 donation could buy a Christmas present for a child in refuge

A £25 donation could buy a child a KidsOut FunDay

A £40 donation could pay for a ToyBox for a child rehoused from refuge

A £100 donation could pay for 2 FunDays, send a ToyBox and give a Christmas present to a child in refuge!

Is the paint safe?

The only ingredients in the paint are Talc, Corn Starch & Non-toxic pigments. The paint is non-toxic, non-irritant to skin and fire proof, and conforms to EN 71-3 European Standard. The colour powder is almost stain free - for removal use soap for body and detergent for clothing with water. Our volunteers will not throw paint above the shoulders or at toddlers. Keep away from eyes and do not swallow. We advise wearing sunglasses for the event to protect the eyes.
