Ronald McDonald House Charities’ fifth annual Colour Run is on this weekend, so  if you want to get colourful for a good cause, Sturt Park is the place to be on Sunday. 

The colour run is the last fundraiser of the year for the Ronald McDonald House Charities Ride for Sick Kids before the five local riders set off on a 1,000 kilometre bike journey around Adelaide in November. 

Mark Craven, Tim Ferguson and Trystan Summers will embark on their first ride for the cause while veteran riders Wayne Demery and Megan Algate will mount the bike again alongside them. 

For the first time in Ride for Sick Kids South Australia history, the ride will both begin and end in Adelaide. Riders will leave Adelaide on Sunday, November 17, to travel to numerous stops including Victor Harbour, Kingston and Mannum before arriving back on Saturday, November 23. 

Sunday’s colour run costs $20 to enter, $10 for those under 13, free for children under five and $50 for a family of up to five. There will be a barbecue and drinks available throughout the day. 

Laster Tag will also be on site at the park, so you can enjoy some colourful shooting, from 10am - 2pm. 

Perfect weather is forecast for a run or stroll through the park when it’s raining coloured chalk. Bring your family, friends and pets - all are welcome.
