We are live! Tickets now available!

Brantford BURST 2019 is our third annual 5K+ explosion of colour and FUN! Join us at the starting gate in the Earl Haig parking lot on September 8th. The un-timed colour fun run for people of any age starts at 11:00 a.m. Our scenic course follows the Grand River, looping at Birkett Lane and returning back to the Earl Haig parking lot. This year you can stop at the 5K mark or keep going for the bonus run! After you cross the finish line, you are invited to celebrate inside Earl Haig Family Fun Park.

Details for Brantford BURST Colour Fun Run Kit pickup will be released upon the availability of tickets. We’ll provide the colour along the route!

SKIP is a local non-profit organization run completely by volunteers. Our programs are highly successful but we only succeed with the help of others. We’re seeking like-minded volunteers to help us prepare for the event and especially on BURST Day.

We’re also seeking companies and organizations to sponsor this one-of-a-kind event. Brantford/Brant is a giving region and we would appreciate your help in reaching out to and connecting with potential sponsors that share our passion for community.

To volunteer, email with your name, phone number, and the reason you would like to help out. A roll will be assigned to you closer to the date of the event, and we will be in correspondence with you and the rest of the volunteers for meetings and more information. We’d be lucky to have you on board!


We would be delighted if you and your company joined our team to make Burst 2019 happen. We have various Sponsorship level options, each coming with exclusive perks to do with Burst 2019. If you are interested in becoming a Sponsor this year, please download and look over our Sponsorship deck and contact! We hope to hear from you soon and look forward to promoting your contribution to our community.
