A rainbow riot of fun is in store when families take part in the all-new Colour Run for Martin House Hospice Care for Children and Young People.

The popular run – on Sunday 15th July – has had a revamp for 2018, with a new venue at Bramham Park, and more paint stations to create an even more vibrant .

Ellie Barker, events fundraiser at Martin House, said:

We’ve added extra paint stations, so runners will become a rainbow of seven colours as they make their way round, and with a new venue we have a different course for people to run.

Participants can run, walk or even dance their way around the 3.5km route at Bramham Park. Starting out in bright white T-shirts they will end up as a kaleidoscope of colour, as they pass through the pink, red, yellow, purple, orange, blue and green paint stations.

There will be a full warm-up before the run starts, along with refreshment stands and Martin House merchandise for sale. The route is also wheelchair and pushchair accessible.

Martin House cares for children and young people with life-limiting conditions, and their families, from across West, North and East Yorkshire. As well as providing care at its hospice, it supports families in their own homes.

Ellie added:

Our Colour Run is a great event for people to have fun as families, while raising money so other families in this area who need our support, can also have special time together to make special memories.

Entry to the Colour Run costs £20 for adults, £10 for children aged five to 15, £50 for a family ticket (two adults, two children, and £15 per adult for groups of ten or more. Everyone who raises £50 or more in sponsorship will also receive a free goody bag. To book your place, visit www.martinhouse.org.uk/Our-Events/All-Events/Colour-Run

Two of the paint stations are being sponsored by local businesses – Thorpe Park Hotel and Branded3 – but there are still opportunities to sponsor a paint station, contact Ellie on events@martinhouse.org.uk to find out more.
