Are you ready for Saint Michael’s Colour Rush?


It’s your chance to paint Ripley showground red, blue, purple and yellow on Sunday June 19, at Saint Michael’s Colour Rush event, but hurry, as time is running out to sign up.

Harrogate’s brightest, happiest community 5k returns for the third fun-filled year, with hundreds of people running, jogging, walking or even dancing their way around the beautiful cross-country course.

The non-competitive run, sponsored by CNG, involves participants being doused with clouds of dazzling colour at every kilometre, crossing the finishing line as a living work of art.

In between paint stations, Colour-Rushers can challenge themselves by tackling some optional fun obstacles.
Gates open at 9am, with The Colour Rush kicking off at 10.30am following a mass Zumba warm up.

Will Smith and Chris Dean from Stray FM will be compering the Colour Rush as well as playing some top summer sounds to keep the crowds in party mode before the colours are unleashed.

Other attractions include live music, quality street food stalls, and face painting, as well the chance to kit yourself out with colourful tutus, wigs and sunglasses.


Saint Michael’s is asking participants to raise as much money in sponsorship as possible by doing the event. Every pound raised will help Saint Michael’s hospice care charity to support people living with terminal illness and bereavement right here in the Harrogate District.

Each year Saint Michael’s helps more than 2,000 local people through its inpatient unit, day therapy, specialist support at home, lymphoedema support, and bereavement support.


Colour Rush entry is £20 per person, Under 16s £10 and free for under 5s, but hurry, as places are limited.
