NEW for this year….Bubbles AND the option of a 5k or 10k run


The Rainbow event in 2015 was a HUGE success, over 500 participants were covered in a kaleidoscope of colour, raising over £27000 a fantastic amount, lets smash that this year!

After the success of the Rainbow event last year, we of course were focused on this years event being bigger and better, so we decided to combine COLOUR and BUBBLES….what more do you want.

While you are running, walking, skipping or sprinting through the beautiful scenery of Hamsterley Forest on Sunday 22nd May 2016 you will be covered head to toe in an array of vibrant coloured, environmentally friendly, powder, thrown at you by very willing volunteers.

NEW for this years event are BUBBLES, somewhere on course you will find bubbles and foam to coat you even more in the Rainbow fun.

For the more serious runner, this year you can enjoy a 10k route, so you get TWICE the colour and bubbles.

If you aren't feeling that energetic but would love to be involved on the day, we are looking for willing volunteers to throw the coloured powder at participants on the route, please call Helen 01388 603003 or email [email protected] to be one of our VIP Throwers!!
