Some motivated staff from Wise McGrath recently entered a team in the Color Run event for charity, held in Sydney earlier this month.

The Colour Run, also known as the “Happiest 5k on the Planet, is a unique paint race that celebrates healthiness, happiness and individuality.” The event modelled on the Hindu festival Holi, where it is tradition to throw brightly coloured powders signifying the seasons change from winter to spring, the Color Run (which began life in the USA, hence the spelling) has been expanded into the southern hemisphere.


At the start of the 5km race, each runner wears white and as they pass each kilometre marker they are blasted with a different colour of brightly coloured paint. Companies and individuals create teams and complete the run for charity.
