Colour chaos run sure to be a riot

YOUNG people can get messy in clouds of colour that will be puffing at the Childers Colour Chaos Fun Run in April.

Participants will have a riot running or walking through coloured powder clouds to the sounds of a DJ at the Bundaberg Regional Council's Youth Month event.

Council community and cultural services spokeswoman Judy Peters said the fun run, which starts at 8.30am on Wednesday, April 5, at Childers Showgrounds, was open to children aged 6 and above.

Entry is $15 and includes a white shirt, sunglasses and bag of coloured powder.

"The white shirt is, of course, the most essential part of the day's outfit to provide a blank canvas to plaster with plenty of colour,” Cr Peters said.

Entry forms are available by clicking here and at council service centres and Childers Library. Registrations closes on Monday, March 13.

The fun run will be followed by a free movie screening at the showgrounds hall in the afternoon.

Deputy Mayor Bill Trevor, whose division includes Childers, said the event had been welcomed by the community.

"We have received terrific support for this event which has been made possible thanks to partnering organisations including the Devils Football Club, Isis District High School, Childers primary school, Bendigo Bank and other community representatives,” Cr Trevor said.

"I would also like to commend student Connor Rehbein for winning the naming competition for Childers Colour Chaos, which judges felt reflected the happy, active and bright theme of the day.”

For his efforts, Connor received free entry in the fun run.
