The Colour Fun Run … is back!September 16th, 2016
After the success of last year’s first ever Colour Fun Run at Oldbury Court Estate we are delighted to announce this fun-filled event will return again on Sunday 2nd October 2016.
Participants can look forward to getting covered head to toe in bursts of coloured powder at each kilometre of the 5k route so grab your white t-shirt and prepare to finish all the colours of the rainbow!
Louise Summers who took part in the inaugural Colour Fun Run in 2015 said “I was keen to do something for Julian House who support people to overcome homelessness and addiction, something that affects so many people, including my own family, but isn’t readily talked about like other causes. It’s lovely to be able to raise money for an excellent charity and have fun at the same time!”
“Oldbury Court Estate was a beautiful venue too and I will definitely be there again this year!”
Over 600 participants of all ages took to the course last year to be showered with brightly coloured paint. It’s one of the craziest and happiest events around and you’ll make it over the finish line in an explosion of colours like no other!
Joanne Bamford, Events Fundraiser at Julian House comments “The fabulous thing about The Colour Fun Run is that anyone can take part, you don’t have to be a runner, you can jog, walk, hop or skip round the course if you like!”
“Lots of families took part last year and had tons of fun so we’ve also introduced a family ticket meaning you’ll save a bit of money too! There will be face painting, music and food and drink on offer so you’re guaranteed a fun day out.”
“It’s a great fun event which also raises money for those facing homelessness who need our support. We want to make the event even bigger and better this year and are expecting the event will be a sell out so are encouraging everyone to book early to avoid disappointment.” ends Joanne
