Dancing, glow paint and DJs - seriously you guys, what's not to love?! It's like the ultimate dance party, local fun-run, and an epic paint party came together and had a party baby (it’s a modern family) - and they named it ILLUMI RUN.
So what is it and how does it actually work? ILLUMI RUN is for runners, dancers, party goers, colour lovers, and general fun-loving folk: basically you round up your wolf pack and head along to the MCG on 27 February to, well, run!
Firstly, there’s a course that has been split into different ‘dance zones’ (you’re convinced already, aren’t you!?), and each one delivers music and live entertainment.
You’ll be splattered with glow paint along the way – and when you combine this with ultra-violet lights, you’ve got the perfect recipe for a psychedelic fun-fest. Don’t worry, the paint all washes off easily with water.
If you’re not a born runner, fear not – ILLUMI RUN is more about the fun than the exercise, so you’re welcome to dawdle along at your own pace and linger in the dance zones - no one’s timing you!
When you’re done moseying, dancing, grooving, and running your way around the 4-5km course you’ll get to the REALLY good bit – the ILLUMI After Party.
A main stage will host a whole swag of epic DJs, including Bombs Away and Social Hooliganz – and, in case you were wondering, THIS is the reason we’re more than happy to get shot in the face with a cannon! Alongside the stage will be paint cannons showering the dancing crowd with 50 litres of paint at a time, in sync with the music. It won’t be long before you’ll be a colourful mess of paint and dance vibes.
Your ticket will get you entry to ILLUMI RUN, a splash-out tee to wear on the day, LED glasses to protect your peepers, LED foam sticks so that you can rave on the run, and a wicked party pack.
Round up all your frands and get booking.
