Dazzle and dash for cash as Martin House Hospice Care for Children and Young People holds its annual Colour Run on Sunday 23rd July.
Martin House is asking runners from around the region to wear their whitest whites and prepare to be pelted with paint as they run around the 3.5km course at Stockeld Park near Wetherby.
Perfect for families, friends and workmates, runners set off dressed in perfect white and end up as unique works of art as they pass through yellow, blue, green, red and pink paint stations on the route.
“This is the ultimate fun run – you can walk, run or even dance your way round, becoming more colourful as you go. In fact, the brighter you are at the finish line, the better,” said Ellie Barker, events fundraiser for Martin House.
A fitness coach will get the crowd warmed up before the start of the run, and everyone who takes part will receive a Colour Run medal. There will also be Martin House merchandise on sale. Stockeld Park will also be selling cakes and refreshments, and it will be open at a discounted rate for people who have taken part in the run.
Martin House provides care and support to children and young people with life-limiting illnesses throughout West, North and East Yorkshire – along with their families – at its hospice, in hospitals and in their own homes.
It costs £20 for adults, £15 for children (five to 15), £50 for a family ticket (two adults, two children) and group bookings of five or more adults is £15 each. There is also a free goody bag for people who raise more than £50 in sponsorship. You can sign up at www.martinhouse.org.uk, by emailing email@example.com or by calling 01937 844569.
