READER GALLERY: Splashes of colour in Wollongong

Wollongong Harbour was awash with shades of blue, pink, yellow and orange as people ran, danced and walked their way around Wollongong’s inaugural Color Run.

More than 10,000 people braved the cool May weather early Sunday morning to participate in the region’s first Color Run, donning tutus, wigs and crazy glasses to mark the occasion.

Runners travelled down the ‘‘Yellow Powdered Round’’, got an orange fake tan and borrowed a look from the Smurfs over the five kilometre course around the harbour and Stuart Park.
