“I did the Colour Run with 4 children and we all absolutely loved it. The atmosphere was exciting and the event was brilliant. We are all looking forward to next year’s run.” 2016 Hospice Colour Run Fundraiser.

The 5km Colour Run, which is twice around the racecourse, is not about setting the fastest time it’s about having fun with your family, friends, work colleagues and thousands of hospice fundraisers. Whether you walk, run, dance or even conga around the route, we can guarantee you will have a bright and vibrant day.

The 2016 Colour Run raised an incredible £62,000 in aid of the hospice and we really hope to beat this total in 2017. There is no minimum sponsorship for the event, we just ask you to do your very best to raise as much money as possible.

This year we will be adding a special surprise to the 5km route to make the day more entertaining and fun. All will be revealed closer to the event!

For the first time we have special sponsorship milestone packages for the Colour Run, which will entitle you to a variety of free items for the event. More information regarding this will be released in the coming weeks.

A very special Colour Run announcement...

We are delighted to announce the special surprise for this year’s Carlisle Colour Run will be a FOAM STATION! For the very first time you will be able to run through a blanket of foam and bubbles as well as through the powdered paint station!
