2019 is set to be our most colourful year to date.

With a record seven paint stations, this vibrant family fundraiser will be the highlight of our summer.

Join more than 1,500 others gathering on a midsummer’s day, all with the intention of getting coloured silly for their Hospice.

After finishing the fun 5K course, you’ll be doused in foam before continuing the party with DJ Roddy Hankins who kicks things off earlier in the day, plus the Starlight Company who will get you all warmed up.

There will be your favourite merchandise stalls plus a wide variety of catering stands.

Please note, there will be no tickets for sale on the day.

Under 16s must be accompanied by an adult.

Your tickets will be emailed to you. If you haven’t received your ticket by midnight on Thursday 13th June please get in touch. You will need to either print your ticket or have it on your phone.

What to wear: White! Wear trainers or secure footwear, but only things you don’t mind getting messy. The paint washes out, but we can’t guarantee it!

You’ll get your sunglasses & a wristband when you register in the morning; along with your Paint Runner t-shirt if you ordered one.

We recommend children and those with respiratory issues wear a bandana that can cover their mouth/nose when passing through Paint Stations.

Only bring things you don’t mind carrying as there isn’t any baggage storage area.

We can only take cash on the refreshments and merchandise stalls so please bear this in mind.


As a massive thank you for raising £20 for us, we’ll give you 2 bags of paint to throw in the main arena, adding to your enjoyment. For every £20 you raise we’ll give you 2 bags of paint; raise £200 for us and that’s a whopping 20 bags of paint.

Become a Paint Running VIP by raising £100 or more. Not only will you get 10+ bags of paint but you’ll also get a goody bag filled with drinks, snacks and merchandise.

To exchange your sponsorship, you’ll need to either bring a printed copy of your JustGiving/Facebook page or have it loaded onto your phone/a screen shot to show the staff in the merchandise tent. The staff can also take sponsorship money if you’ve collected it the traditional way.

Your entry fees go towards putting on a great event but it is your sponsorship that makes a difference to people’s lives at the Hospice; please do as much as you can.
