Dates and times for Check in are generally the day prior to the event and then on the day just prior to kick off.  Look out for the Dye Hard Marquee.

IMPORTANT NOTE REGARDING THE COLOUR THROWS - DYE HARD EVENTS.
When you cross the finish line you will receive your sachet to use in the colour throws. Please don't open your packet until you are taking part in the colour throw, as this will add the maximum amount of colour to the throw.  There will be multiple colour throws so if you see one starting and you haven't completed the course yet, do not fear there will be others to follow and you will not miss out!
Get your phones and cameras ready for the colour throw! A fantastic photo opportunity!  
There will be extra packets available to purchase if you want to participate in more group throws.

There will be a bag drop area, where you can leave your gear while you are participating. Bag drop is a gold coin donation, with all proceeds going to our chosen charity partner for the event (check out the event page for the relevant partner).

HOW TO REGISTER
All registrations must be made online.  Online registrations will close off usually the night before the first check in.  Tickets do sell out, and we will only have on the day registrations if we are not fully sold.  So if you don't want to miss out, get in before it is too late. The earlier you register the cheaper the tickets will be.

How does it work?
You will travel along an approximate 5km course and along the way passing through masses of colour throughout the course at a number of colour chutes. We blow it in the air, spray or squirt it from bottles creating a rainbow of colour for you to walk, jog or stroll through. There will be multiple Chutes and at the finish, get ready with your own colour sachet, or purchase extra and let the party start!
What are the colour throws?
After you cross the finish line and join in the party atmosphere, all finishers will group together and every 10 minutes or so there will be a mass colour throw!  You will receive your own included colour packet which you should hang onto until the MC counts down for the colour throw.  Get ready for LOTS of colour and brilliant photo opportunities.
How fit do I need to be?
The Dye Hard Fun Run is suitable for all levels of fitness. You can walk or run, whatever you feel comfortable with. You just need to be able to have fun, dance and party! There is no time limit and the event is not timed.
Can I bring my pet?
Sorry, no pets are allowed.
Can my kids ride a scooter or bike?
No, sorry, no bikes or scooters are permitted. However, strollers and prams are OK.
What do I wear?
When you check in you can pick up your printed Dye Hard Fun Run T-shirt, if you ordered online. We try to ensure all participants wear as much white as possible. This ensures that all runners will look like rainbows at the end of the race! If you don't have all white clothing don't worry, as long as you have a white t-shirt you will be fine. The colour will wash out of your clothes, but we still don't recommend wearing your Sunday Best! As this is a fun day many of our participants dress up, so feel free to be creative and go a little crazy with your outfits!
Are the colours safe?
Absolutely. Our vibrant colours are made up of Corn starch and FD&C and/or D&C colours. They are approved for use in foods, cosmetics and/or drugs. These products are not considered hazardous, 29CFS 1910-1200.
What if the powder gets in our eyes?
We like to encourage our participants to wear glasses or sunglasses, however the colour is non-toxic. A simple rinse with water will take care of any that finds its way into your eyes.
Will the colour wash off skin/out of hair?
Yes! The easiest way to get it off is while it's still dry (shake, wiggle, jump up and down, vacuum). After that, soap and water with a little rinse and repeat action will do the trick.
What about my car on the way home?
The powder should not badly affect the inside of a car, but we would advise you to bring a towel or garbage bag to sit on in your car just to make sure.
What will be at the finish line?
Music, dancing, market stalls and a big colour throw, where you get to throw your own sachet at your friends and family. There will be colour throws every 10-15 minutes or so as the finishers come in.
Is there a bag drop?
Yes, there will be a bag drop. It will be a gold coin donation, which will go towards the nominated charity of the event.
Can I register on the day?
If the event is sold out, there will be NO registrations. If the event is not sold out, then yes!
Are t-shirts sold on the day?
We will have a limited number of T-Shirts and other merchandise for sale, but to be sure you get one and in your preferred size, it is best to order at the time of entering.
