Colours run at festival obstacle course

A CLOUD of colour was no obstacle for a young crowd at the starting line of the Junior Chamber hosted Delicious and Delightful Festival fun run.

Participants aimed to put themselves in the path of flying colours as they made their way through a course made from a range of recycled materials including plastic drums as well as ropes and other challenges.

The popular event ran for two hours with kids repeatedly lining up for another chance to add layers of colour to once white outfits.

Designed to encourage fitness and fun, Junior Chamber members including Karsten Duvel, Ajay Datt and Hannah Hassan took aim at participants at stations throughout the course, waiting to douse youngsters on their way past.

Ms Hassan said the event was a chance to have fun and be a part of the festival while taking on some of the volunteers roles that always need another pair of hands.
