The Paint Runner and Foam Zone after party 2017
The Paint Runner celebrates health, happiness, and creativity, while also giving something back to your local community.
Runners (or walkers) start the 5K course dressed in white: after passing through five colour-blasting stations, they will finish the run coloured in HAPPY. Now in its fourth year, the run regularly attracts more than 1,500 fundraisers – all crossing the finish line in a kaleidoscope of brightness.
With DJ Roddy Hankins mix of summer tunes, the music festival atmosphere starts the moment you enter the arena.
And if you buy one of our Paint Packs you can get the party started by releasing colour over yourself and fellow runners.
Foam Zone after party
Home before the foam? Don’t even think about it.
When you cross that finish line, the fun is just beginning.
Catch your breath, then join us and our DJs for some midday mayhem in The Paint Runner Foam Zone.
Be sure to keep hold of your finish line Paint Pack, too, for a mass Colour Throw.
Packed with everything you need to add to the buzz, the Runners’ Village will be stocked with funky merchandise, colourful paint pouches, beach balls, inflatables and food stands.

The Paint Runner is pre-registration only: you must buy your place in advance.
The Paint Runner is pre-registration only and each of the previous events has sold out, so sign up now to ensure you reserve your place.
Come along wearing a white t-shirt (and running gear you don’t mind getting messy) and leave dressed in a rainbow and a massive smile.
After passing through our new foam zone you’ll run through five colour stations, each showering you with a different colour of paint.
The paint is 100% non-toxic and biodegradable, and easily washes off so you can go wild and get as colourful as you can!
Before taking part on the day, you must sign in at the registration desk on King George V Playing Fields (next to the Halo Leisure Centre outdoor changing rooms).
Registration begins at 10am; race starts at 11am
Instructors from Halo Leisure will lead a mass ‘warm up’ and help get everyone ready all the fun of the run
Your paint pack, sunglasses and event wristband will be available for you to collect from the registration desk before the event (unfortunately, we are unable to deliver packs before the event day)
Each of our Paint Stations has been kindly sponsored by local companies. You can check out who our fantastic sponsors are as they blast you with paint!
More paint will be available to help keep you in the party mood. You can also enjoy some extra activities around the arena including refreshments, stalls, inflatables and games.
And all the fun of the day will be directly benefitting your Hospice.
Because of your pledge to raise sponsorship, we can provide care and support for local patients and their families at a time they need us most.
Please download a Sponsor Form and ask your friends and family to help support more people living with a terminal illness.
To say thank you we are giving anyone who raises over £20 in sponsorship two bags of throwing paint. With your support we can make The Paint Runner more colourful than ever before.
