TIME is ticking for people wanting to register for early bird prices to take part in Durham City’s most colourful charity run of the year. Colourama will return to St Leonards Playing Field on Saturday 16th June and the popular 5k colour run looks set to be as bright, fun and messy as ever!

Alongside a variety of bright coloured non-toxic, washable powder paint being showered upon participants, Colourama challengers will get to take on an assortment of fun obstacles, including cargo nets, hay bales, tunnels and a waterslide.

This summer marks the 4th year for the colourful fun run which helps to raise vital funds for people with advanced illnesses in County Durham.

Jade McArdle, Senior Community & Events Fundraiser at St Cuthbert’s Hospice said: “Colourama has fast become a date for the diary for families and friends looking for a fun charity event for the summer.

“People can take the course at their own pace, whether that be walking, jogging, sprinting or even skipping hand in hand over the finish line.”

Last year’s event saw over 1,000 people take part.

Registration is now open, with an early bird rate of £17 for adults and £12 for children aged 15 and under available until Monday, May 1. Children aged five and under can take part for free.
