On Sunday 13 May the hospice’s fourth annual 5km Colour Run will take place. 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 Eden Valley Hospice and Jigsaw. Since launching in 2015 the three previous Carlisle Colour Run events have raised and incredible £190,948.

The vibrant day of fundraising will see people transformed from a blank canvas into a rainbow of colour as they 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 the hospice asks it that you raise as much money as you can to help Eden Valley Hospice and Jigsaw. Your registration fee covers all the costs involved in administrating your place as well as the providing you with a t-shirt, sunglasses, Colour Run paint, bubbles and your finishers prize.
