There's a new running race coming to Waterloo, Ontario in just four weeks: In Running Colour. It's a brand new fundraiser for Big Brothers Big Sisters. Today, my children got a trial run through of what this race is going to be like. At five stations along the course, the runners will be subject to a cascade of coloured powder (very safe corn starch). by the end of the race, their previously white shirts will be much more interesting.
The following video features a short demonstration, though only one colour will be used at each station in the actual race.
In Running Colour is an all ages event with 4km or 1km distances for runners and walkers. Would be a terrific outing with your family. August 24, 2013 at Columbia Lake (Brubaker House) on the grounds of the University of Waterloo. Visit the RunWaterloo website for further details and to register. From the same site you can click to sponsor any of the runners. Should you wish to sponsor my daughter, follow this link.
