Dear Rushers,

Greetings from our home offices. How are you doing?

We wanted to reach you all with some information. We know many of you are wondering how the current situation is affecting our events.

Most of you are wondering if we will be able to hit the obstacles in May, June or July. We fully understand your concern and we kindly ask for your understanding and patience in these extraordinary times. After the first lockdown weeks we will be wiser and we will keep in touch with you all. You can follow our news here on our website where we keep you updated for most recent developments.

For now the events in the UK will take place as planned. As long as the authorities do not cancel an event, it is difficult for us to make a justified and financially responsible decision. We do anticipate the lockdown to be extended longer than three weeks, but we are waiting for the official report from the authorities. The possible rescheduling of our events puts a great deal of pressure on our team and organization since many of the costs still occur on the original date. But with the help of you lovely and supporting Rushers, we will get past this difficult situation and meet again under our coloured clouds!

For now, please, obey the government’s advice, stay home and follow the practice of social distancing. The sooner we all take part in this practice, the sooner we have a chance to party together!

We will respond to all emails and messages soon – you dear Rushers are the reason why we as an organisation exist and we are lucky to have a community like you, to keep on creating these happy moments together – kindly stay patient in giving us time to reply to all your queries.

Please stay home as much as you can, continue keeping yourself strong and in good health. Call your loved ones and find happiness in the little things.

We’re living in extraordinary times and we’re learning more about COVID-19 daily. Here we will continue to update you lovely Rushers of the current situation regarding our events in the UK this Summer.

As much as we all want to have fun and bounce in the inflatables, the most important thing we can do now is to avoid catching and speeding the coronavirus.

Therefore, we would like to remind you all from now on to follow the government’s guidance:

– wash your hands with soap and water often, at least for 20 seconds
– if soap and water are not available, remember to use hand sanitizer gel.
– cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze
– avoid close contact with people who have any symptoms of flu
– stay at home as much as you can
– avoid traveling and social actives

Looking on the bright side, we still can:

– Fulfill the dreams we have been chasing
– Take long walks in the forest
– Cook healthy food and try new recipes
– Call your grandparents
– Practice new random skills
– Spread positive thoughts

This situation won’t last forever.
We appreciate everyone’s patience.

Dear Rushers,

Coronavirus (COVID-19) has been on almost everyone’s mind lately and we wanted to reach out to all of you. We’re sure a lot of you are wondering how this affects our events and we are here to provide answers.

The safety of our participants and team members is always our top priority. We follow closely all instructions and/or recommendations of official authorities. 

At the moment we assume all of our events will go on as planned according to our original schedule.
All in all, you can feel safe signing up for Color Obstacle Rush. Our aim is to arrange all events as planned but rest assured that should we be forced to change dates for some events, all tickets are transferable easily.

We’d like to mention a few factors related to Color Obstacle Rush. Firstly, our events take place outside and the people are always spread out along the 5km long track. We’ve made adjustments to the schedule as well so that we have a 30min break after every second start group.

We’ve also made sure you have more space when queuing for example in check-in or the start of the course. Furthermore, our warm-up prior to the course and the color festival afterward are arranged in different areas in order to have fewer people in one single place at a time.

We’ve added hand sanitisers to multiple points in the event including check-in, event entry and water stations where extra care will be taken to ensure hygiene. Our color powder is distributed by contracted workers in sealed bags who have all been properly instructed. At no point, there is no human touch before the colour is distributed.

We also use ozonation to disinfect our obstacles between events. We’ve added these extra steps in order to provide you Rushers a safe and fun event!
Safety is by far our first priority. We are working hard to find and come up with any adjustments to the events in order to keep everyone safe.

See you all soon!
