Event description

The Karaka School PTA Karaka Kolour Dash Team is proud to announce for the first time, an exciting event for 2019. The Karaka Kolour Dash will see participants completing a 1km obstacle course around the school grounds while passing through five colour zones, getting covered in vibrant  coloured powder.

Running is entirely optional – walk, skip or crawl if you prefer! It is a true family event suitable for pre-schoolers, grandparents and everyone in between. Once everyone has completed the course there will be a countdown to a synchronised colour powder throw; a great end to the party atmosphere! 

Food and beverages will be available to purchase as well as opportunities to win spot prizes throughout the day.

The entry fee is $20 for participants aged 5+ and $10 for under 5 year olds. This entry fee includes

  • Entry to the Karaka Kolour Dash Course
  • A white Karaka Kolour Dash t-shirt
  • An event specific wrist band.
  • Powder to throw for a group photo at the end of the event. 

Tickets are on sale until Friday 22 November. However, we cannot guarantee availability of specific t-shirt sizes for any tickets sold after 12 November.

Only runners wearing the 2019 Karaka Kolour Dash wrist bands and white t-shirts provided will be able to participate. 

Please note: The coloured powders, or Holi powders, are made from cornflour and food colouring and essential oils. The powders are non-toxic, non-flammable and all ingredients used are permitted in the food and cosmetic industries. They will not stain hair or skin and will wash off with the first wash with soap.

The race packs (including t-shirts) will be sent home with the Karaka School pupils in the week before the event, outside the school office on the 21st and 22nd of November and can be picked up on the morning of the event. 

Please join us and take advantage of this opportunity to create some magical memories with your kids.
