Jac Paterson (17) gets pelted with blue powder by Nadine de Jong at the annual colour run at Oamaru Racecourse yesterday. 

The race was organised in Oamaru by Sport Waitaki. Co-ordinator Mitch McRae said about 500 people registered for the event, and runners of all ages completed a 5km circuit.

Five colour stations were set up at various points and each runner was peppered with coloured powder as they passed.

"It’s great to see a lot of families and people just here for a bit of fun, really. That’s what it’s about."
