Special Events

Colour Runs

Colour Runs are great fun for running novices and serious competitors alike. These brilliant events are a great way to inject the fun back into running. They take place across the country, throughout the year, and there are plenty to choose from.

You’ll normally be provided with a white T-shirt and some coloured dye, and will then run through different colour stations on your way along the 5k route. If you’ve managed to keep your T-shirt sparkling white then that will all change at the obligatory colour fight at the finish line!
