Show Your Colours for the Chopper

Show Your Colours for the Chopper is a run that saves lives: a fun run that supports the Westpac Rescue Helicopter Service.

This fun run is open to everyone. Run, walk, skip or push a pram. You'll have the best time, and you can do it with your friends, family or work mates. Get a team together and sign up today.

This is not a timed event. Runners tend to take their time out there. No one really cares about how fast you are really going and it is suggested self-timing for any real serious athlete.

At the Finish Festival, the crowd will do a colour throw every 20 minutes to welcome new runners coming in. You will receive one packet at the finish line and more can be purchased at check-in or the finish if desired.
