Maxi Jerram-Snell, Kellie Brunker and Maggie McCalman (pictured, from left) helped form a tsunami of colour on Saturday.
The Deniliquin trio took part in the Colour Me Rad 5km fun run at Waurn Ponds in Geelong, where hundreds of people started the course in white shirts and finished up looking like tie-dyed hippies.
The event, which travels around Australia, was a fundraiser for the YMCA.
‘‘The girls had a ball,’’ Maxi’s mum Tracey Jerram said.
‘‘Felicity McCalman and I were watching and we wished we had have went in it ourselves. It looked like so much fun.’’
The Colour Me Rad event saw participants walk or run 5km while throwing ‘colour bombs’ made of cornstarch at each other.
Volunteers were squirting competitors with water pistols so the colour would stick, and some volunteers were even spraying fire extinguishers full of the stuff, resulting in a blitzkrieg of colour.
