Brilliant sunshine greeted the 1000 participants of the Shelly Park School Eyes of Howick Colour Fun Run on Sunday. The event involved runners completing a 1km obstacle course around the school grounds while passing through six colour powder stations and culminating in a giant foam slide. Photographer Wayne Martin was there to cover the colourful spectacle.
Principal Ed Roper was a firm favourite for the kids at the ‘Bomb the teacher’ station while the volunteer fire service ensured the participants were suitably cooled off. The afternoon concluded with a dazzling colour throw.
PTA member Hayley Gahan was thrilled with the outcome, “Our main goal was to create an event for families to be active and have fun together, and judging by the smiles of the people present we certainly achieved this,” she said.
