The Rainbow Run is Ireland’s most fun 5k run! The first of its kind in Ireland, this unique run involves participants of all abilities and ages being doused from head to toe with coloured powder paint while they run, jog or walk our beautiful 5km route along Dun Laoghaire’s West Pier on July 28th.
The Rainbow Run is entirely focussed on FUN so there is no competitive atmosphere, no recorded times and no age restrictions, all that matters is that you enjoy yourself and finish covered in loads of colour! You can be an Olympic athlete or someone entering a run for the first time in your life, it really doesn't matter at all. The real winner on the day is the person who has the most fun!
Everybody should try to start the race dressed in as much white as possible (although not essential) and at intervals along the route you will be bombarded with different colours until you cross the finish line and enter the colour festival covered in a kaleidoscope of pinks, blues, greens, yellows, purples, reds and every mixture of colours you can think of! Don’t worry though, the powder that we use is a non-toxic and natural corn-starch based product that will not stain your hair or cause damage to anybody.
We really are bringing the party to the Post-Run Spring Break Party by having the fantastic 80s supergroup Spring Break performing everyone’s favourite hits as they cross the finish line and during the large colour bomb that will occur in the finish area!
