Runners and walkers navigate a 5km course, passing through color zones where they are showered with coloured powder.

The run is a paint race that celebrates healthiness, happiness and individuality.

Hamilton Hill mother-and-son Kate Gall and Matthew Summerfield will use the event as a fun way to keep active.

After supporting his mum’s efforts to live a more active lifestyle, eight-year-old Matt decided it was time to take part himself ” and his mum could not be prouder.

‘I decided to go on a weight loss journey and not be a bench-sitter anymore,’ Kate said.

‘Right from the start he’s been my number one man. He’s always there talking to me and keeping me going.

‘When he offered to run this with me I was pretty surprised because he doesn’t like running.’
