Third Stag­ing of the Most Colour­ful Fun Run!

The Star (St. Lucia) - - LOCAL -

For the third year run­ning, Li­ive Pro­duc­tions’ Dash In­de­pen­dence Colour Run is all set to add some more colour to the land­scape of of­fi­cial ac­tiv­i­ties for the com­mem­o­ra­tion of the 38th an­niver­sary of the is­land’s in­de­pen­dence. Slated for Fe­bru­ary 19th, 2017, the highly an­tic­i­pated event will start at the Massy Mega car park at 6 a.m. and end at the in­ter­sec­tion be­tween Bay­walk Mall and JQ Rod­ney Bay Mall.

The event, which is the first of its kind to have been held on the is­land, has built up a rep­u­ta­tion over the past two years of be­ing the “hap­pi­est fun run”. Con­tribut­ing to the event’s ap­peal is the fact that par­tic­i­pants/DASHERS are given pack­ets of non­toxic pow­der in a va­ri­ety of colours and, on the route, be­come a mov­ing can­vas through four zones of pow­der in the colours of our na­tional flag. Skin tones dis­ap­pear un­der these vi­brant colours as the DASHERS throw their wor­ries to the wind. The amaz­ing mu­sic along the route also helps to cre­ate an at­mos­phere that sets the stage for the up­com­ing car­ni­val sea­son in a cheer­ful, fam­ily-friendly en­vi­ron­ment.

The af­ter-party in Rod­ney Bay in­creases the fes­tive am­bi­ence with live DJs and per­for­mances by amaz­ing lo­cal acts, and mas­sive pow­der throws cre­at­ing a kalei­do­scope of colours. But it’s not all fun and games! Since its in­cep­tion, the event or­gan­is­ers have part­nered with The Child­hood Devel­op­ment and Guid­ance Cen­tre to raise funds for the cause and will con­tinue to do so this year. Reg­is­tra­tion costs $40 for adults and $20 for chil­dren un­der 12 years old. Early Bird spe­cials are avail­able un­til Jan­uary 31st, 2017. Reg­is­tra­tion out­lets in­clude the CDGC in La Clery, CrossFit758, and Mo­tion Stu­dios. There will also be a reg­is­tra­tion tent at Bay­walk Mall ev­ery Satur­day be­tween 11 a.m. and 3 p.m.

The Dash Colour Run is on the cal­en­dar of ac­tiv­i­ties for In­de­pen­dence 2017.
