Colour Me Crazy Fun Run

The Colour Me Krazy fun run is organised by local youth leaders from the Burnie Youth Council, Hellyer College and Marist Regional College, and aims to raise money for the Burnie Youth Accommodation Service (BYAS), which provides emergency crisis accommodation for young people between the ages of 13-20.

The run is a circuit of the South Burnie beach where runners are covered by coloured powder at stations along its length. It is to be held on Sunday the 26th November from 11am till 2pm.

Youth Mayor Emma Walker said, “The Youth Council came up with this project in thinking of ways that we could help out others like us that were going through a hard time. We wanted to raise money to go to the Burnie Youth Crisis Centre and support what they were doing. It’s all about local young people helping other young people with something that could happen to any of us.”

The powder paint being used is wheat gluten based and non-toxic. Runners are advised to turn up on the day in white clothing, and to be aware that the colour powder may stain, so don’t wear anything that you cannot afford to lose!

“You can contribute either by buying a ticket and running in the event, or by making a donation if you are a business or organisation. Donations by business give you the opportunity for a certificate of recognition. We would really like to see Burnie business leaders step up and help us with this, it’s such a good cause.”

Tickets are $20 or $10 for under 16 years, and available via Burnie Tickets. Contact the Youth Officer at Burnie City Council for other payment options including cash and bank transfer.
