Fun run gets Ceduna colourful | GALLERY

Ceduna colour run organiser Amber Drummond hailed Sunday’s event a success.

About 70 participants were doused in colour at the Ceduna Sailing Club, before setting off along the Pinky Point trail.

The event had to be postponed by two weeks due to poor weather on the original date, but participants were greeted with a kinder day.

“It was a good day, we had perfect weather for it and people were getting into the spirit of the day by having their shirt coloured,” Ms Drummond said.

"All the feedback I have had has been positive, people saw it as a nice run or walk-along and day out.”

The event kicked off Ceduna’s 2018 Relay for Life, with a number of registrations for April’s event on the day.

Ms Drummond said the colour run proved a helpful boost.

“We had 30 new registrations to go up to 85 people so far and 13 teams – last year there were only six teams in total,” Ms Drummond said.

“This was a good way to get it started – the Relay is about walking so we thought we would incorporate it, and it got people registered.

“We have a few new teams starting up too and now with names secured people can fundraise and we know what we are looking at in terms of numbers at next year’s event.”

She said there may also be a colour lap during the Relay.

“We would possibly like to incorporate a colour lap into the Relay if people are interested, it has been tossed around as an option.”
