Vivid colours will brighten up Carlisle this May as the annual Eden Valley Hospice Colour Run returns to the racecourse, bigger, brighter and with added bubbles.  

Registration is now open for the hospice’s fourth 5km Colour Run, which will take place on Sunday 13 May. The family friendly event will see thousands of fundraisers transforming themselves from a blank canvas into a rainbow of colour as they complete two laps of the track. 

More than 1,300 people took part in the 2017 event raising almost £60,000 to help the care, support and activities provided at the hospice. Since launching in 2015 the three previous Carlisle Colour Run events have raised an incredible £190,948.  

Sam Johnston, Community Fundraiser, explained: “The Colour Run is a brilliant occasion which really pulls the community together to help raise money for the hospice. It is our signature and biggest event of the year. 

“All ages can join in from the toddlers to the elderly. We had three generations of one family taking part last year.” 

The vibrant day of fundraising will see participants pass through the different paint stations where they will be showered in coloured powdered paint, along with the return of the foam station. 

There is no minimum sponsorship for the Colour Run, all is asked is that you raise as much money as you can to help Eden Valley Hospice and Jigsaw. The registration fee covers all costs involved in administering a place in the event, as well as providing Colour Run paint, t-shirt, sunglasses, bubbles and a finishers prize. 

Whether you walk, run or dance around Carlisle’s brightest 5km, you’re guaranteed to have a colourful day.
