KidsOut Colour Dash
Come one, come all to the KidsOut Colour Dash at Drayton Manor Theme Park!
FUN, LAUGHTER, DANCING, RUNNING, and lots and lots of COLOUR!
The KidsOut Colour Dash RETURNS to Drayton Manor Theme Park this September! Back by popular demand, this is a great day out for all the family! It doesn’t matter how long it takes you to complete the run, what matters is how much fun you have – and how coloufull you get!
Every Colour Dasher will receive a white t-shirt – and your challenge is to get as much colour on your shirt as possible around the course! Every finisher will be given a medal, and every attendee will be given the opportunity to gain FREE access to the Theme Park!
We can’t wait, we’ll see you there!
What is a Colour Dash, you ask?
The Colour Dash is a race route around the park and grounds of Drayton Manor Theme Park in Tamworth, 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!
How much will it cost, and what does my entry fee cover?
Our pricing structure is set out on our Eventbrite Ticketing page, where you can purchase your tickets. Your ticket price includes a race pack, and the race itself, and covers the cost of the paint used, and all profits will go to KidsOut.
How can I gain FREE access to Drayton Manor Theme Park*?
To gain access to the park you must raise a minimum sponsorship of £10 per person. Once you’ve provided evidence of your sponsorship at the sign in desk you’ll be given your free Drayton Manor theme park ticket so you can enjoy the rides after the race.
What are the timings on the day?
Registration will open at 9am, please bring your Eventbrite ticket and this will release your race pack, and proof of sponsorship donations prior to the race and this will gain you free access to Drayton Manor Theme Park. 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.
If you have any further questions please contact the KidsOut office on 01525 385252!
*Drayton Manor Theme Park access is only available for use on 8th September 2018.
