First ever Weston Colour Run to make a splash this Spring!

News feed image_yellow

We’re launching a brand new fundraising event! The Weston Colour Run bursts onto Uphill Beach, Weston-super-Mare on Sunday 27th April at 12 noon and hundreds of participants are expected to sign up to be a part of North Somerset’s first and only colour run event. Registrations were pouring in within hours of launch yesterday and many of you have told us you’re in the process of getting a team together!

Josh Settle of Westbury Crescent, Weston-super-Mare was amongst the sign-ups, he said: “The Weston Colour Run is an awesome idea and I’m so glad I get to be a part of it. It’s like the Holi Festival in India but without the expensive flights!”

Running or walking either 5k or 10k, the Weston Colour Run invites you to get your kit dirty as you whizz through colour stations on the course and get showered with brightly coloured powder paint, transforming yourself from a blank canvas into a human kaleidoscope! With no winners and no official timing system, the Weston Colour Run is simply an excuse for you to get proper messy and have loads of fun with friends and family. Here’s a little idea of what you can expect:

On the day, a mass paint party will kick start the event so come with your sleeves well and truly rolled up – no one will remain squeaky clean! Local businesses backing the event on the day include Bloxham and Barlow, The Grand Pier, Freak Events and The Breeze FM – they’ll all be showing their support by chucking paint at willing Weston Colour runners.

Many thanks to Hidden Picture Productions, ACF Team Building & Events, Clare (and her hair!) from Weston Operatic Society and the gang at Upstaged for getting themselves mucky (and a little cold) for our videos. Keep an eye out for our next one, coming your way soon!

Look out also for our mobile ‘photobooth’, when the Weston Colour Run team will take up residence at Weston College campuses on the 24th, 25th and 26th February. Students and the community will get the chance to don wacky wigs and fancy dress as they have their photo taken by the Hospice team – what better way to upgrade your Facebook profile pic?!

So, what’re you waiting for? Help us raise vital funds and paint the town – literally. Sign up today at or call the Fundraising Team on 01934 423960 for more information.
