KidsOut Colour Dash
Come one, come all to the inaugural KidsOut Colour Dash at Drayton Manor Theme Park!
What is a Colour Dash, you ask?
The Colour Dash is a 5K 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 Event Brite page, where you can purchase your tickets. Your entry price INCLUDES A TICKET TO DRAYTON MANOR THEME PARK ONCE YOU’VE FINISHED THE RACE!! This means that by taking part in the KidsOut Colour Dash, your entry to the theme park will cost LESS THAN HALF THE PRICE of a standard adult entry ticket if purchased on the day!* Your ticket price also includes a race pack, covers the cost of the paint used around the park and all profits go to KidsOut.
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.
If you have any further questions please contact the KidsOut office on 01525 385252!
*Based on cost of Adult Runner Early Bird Ticket – ticket is only valid for use on the day of the Colour Dash and not transferable to another date
