Rainbow Run Volunteers

Can you volunteer on the day?

Our events would not be possible without the support of our amazing volunteers! If you would like to volunteer at this event, or you are taking part and have any family and friends who’d like to come and support you on the day and help out, please register your interest as a volunteer.

Join Team CHSW!

Join our team of amazing fundraisers by taking part in our last Bristol Rainbow Run. Your entry fee for this year's Rainbow Run will cover the cost of hosting this event but the money you raise will make a difference to the lives of local children with life-limiting conditions and their families, helping to ensure they can continue to access the vital care and support they need.

Our fundraising teams are here to support you every step of the way, and make fundraising as easy and fun as possible by providing ideas for every occasion, how-to guides and great branded materials for you to download.

I loved the fun atmosphere and getting showered in paint - fantastic, see you next year!

Charlotte's story

Help to reduce single use plastic

On the day we will have CHSW reusable water bottles for sale. Thirsty Work are kindly supporting our event and providing us with all of the water for the day, for you to fill your bottles free of charge! If you want to support our green initiative even further, please bring along your own bottle already full of water.

Any plastic left after the event will be taken away by Thirsty Work and sent to Simply Cups, who recycle plastic and paper cups, and turn them in to traffic cones and patio furniture! We hope that you will all support us in our steps towards making our events more sustainable, and helping to improve the environment

CHSW Rainbow Run Bristol 2019


North Somerset Showground, Bristol,  BS48 1NF


There will be plenty of parking on site at the Showground, but to try and make our events as green as possible, we encourage everyone to car share as much as possible to avoid delays and traffic at the entrance. Due to Clevedon Road and Bristol Road being very busy stretches of road, we do not advise using buses to get to the event as you would need to walk along the road to get to the entrance, and we strongly advise against this.

Please follow the parking guidance from our team on the day to help the event run as smoothly as possible.

Event schedule

Our event village will open at 11.00am on the day. Join us for entertainment to get you in the rainbow mood. There will be colourful merchandise available to purchase.  Our legendary warm up returns for another Rainbow Run, and the run starts at 1.00pm.


There will be toilets available on site in the event village.


There will be catering and refreshment stands in the event village. Please remember to clean up all of your rubbish and place in the bins provided/take away with you on the day, so that we leave the Showground as we found it.


The route is an accessible 5k route, though please note that the route will be on grassy terrain, and not a foothpath and therefore most suited to all-terrain pushchairs.
