Focused on FUN!

The 98FM Rainbow Run is entirely focused on FUN so there is no competitive atmosphere, no recorded times and no age restrictions, all that matters is that you enjoy yourself and finish covered in loads of colour! You can be an Olympic athlete or someone entering a run for the first time in your life, it really doesn’t matter at all. The real winner on the day is the person who has the most fun.

What to Expect at The 98FM Rainbow Run 2017?

Everybody should try to start the race dressed in as much white as possible (although not essential) and at intervals along the route you will be bombarded with different colours until you cross the finish line and enter the colour festival covered in a kaleidoscope of pinks, blues, greens, yellows, purples, reds and every mixture of colours you can think of! Don’t worry though, the powder that we use is a non-toxic and natural corn-starch based product that will not cause damage to anybody. group girls

The After Party!

With the event kicking off at 2pm we will have music and entertainment getting everyone in the mood for the run at the start line.

After the run we will be joined by Smash Hits along with a host of local and radio DJs bringing the party to Dun Laoghaire with a mixture of 90s hits and all out classics to keep the party going. With the full lineup still to be announced you can expect a few surprise acts still to be released ;)
