Team Rygor Gets Colourful for Charity Run

Saturday 9th August 2014

Team bonding for a good cause? ‘It doesn’t get better than that!’ thought Rygor Accounts team member, Lisa Drake.

Hearing about Color Me Rad, a 5k run for children’s charity Time Is Precious, Lisa thought it would be the perfect opportunity to get the team together for a great day.

Early Sunday morning (31st August), Team Rygor met at our Headquarters in Westbury, wearing their plain white T-Shirts and Colour Me Rad, mirrored sunglasses and piled into the Rygor Sprinter traveliner to take them to the event, held at the Bath & West Showground.

Colour Me Rad is a 5K run that fires off with paint canons – starting the race with a bang! Handfuls of corn-starch powder paint are thrown at the runners at regular intervals throughout the race too, injecting even more rainbow energy into the run!

“There was such a great atmosphere as we arrived at the site. We made our way to the field where music was blasting out from huge speakers on stage and there was a fantastic MC getting everyone motivated for the race.” Said Lisa.

“The first wave of runners took off at 9am, then it was our turn to get to the starting line. At every kilometre, there was a colour bomb station, where we had handfuls of powdered paint fired at us. It’s amazing how much fun just some powder paint can be – the atmosphere was electric!

“As we neared the finish line, those who were a little further ahead held back, so we could cross the finish line, together as a team. I would recommend the race to anyone who is looking for a healthy and exciting day out, all for a very worthwhile cause,” Lisa added.
