As you embark on this exciting journey, you’ll find yourself immersed in a lively atmosphere, surrounded by enthusiastic runners, joggers and walkers of all ages.

The course in the heart of Newcastle village in Wicklow is designed to be enjoyable and accessible, allowing participants to walk, jog, or run at their own pace. Along the way, you’ll encounter various colour zones where volunteers will shower you with vibrant coloured powders, turning your white shirt into a masterpiece of hues. Don’t worry, the powders used are non-toxic and easily washable, ensuring a safe and enjoyable experience for all.


At the finish line, you’ll be greeted with a grand celebration, complete with music and even more colour throws. Join in the festivities and revel in the sense of accomplishment as you cross the finish line, covered head to toe in a kaleidoscope of colours.

Continue the fun at the post race BBQ!
