Tips for hosting the best Crazy Colour Day!

Lucky for you, it’s pretty difficult to fail when it comes to hosting a wonderful Colour Fun Run event! But there are lots of ways you can add extra fun. Learn our top tips for taking your colour event to the next level.


Use an Australian company!

Some Colour Fun Run fundraising companies or Colour Powder Providers are not Australian owned and operated. Sourcing their powder from China, they can’t guarantee that the colour powder is safe, non-toxic and good quality!

Choosing an Australian company like Australian Fundraising assures that you are receiving the best quality vibrant colour powder – one that is 100% safe for skin and eyes. Made of 98% corn starch and 2% food-grade colour powder, the colour powder provided by Australian Fundraising and Holi Colour Powder is the absolute best in the business.


Spray participants with water first.

Make your colour powder stand out by spraying your participants with water first! Not only does this add an extra element of fun and excitement to your Crazy Colour Day, it helps the non-toxic powder stick to skin and clothes.

Participants will be mesmerized by the outstanding colour filling the air and landing on their skin. A little bit of water can have participants in awe!


Recruit your volunteers in advance.

Team work makes the dream work! Recruiting you Colour Blasters and track volunteers well in advance will ensure students have plenty of opportunities to be covered head to toe in colour powder!

Ideally, you will have four volunteers at each station, and up to 8 different stations around your track (Colour, Water, Obstacles and supervision).
