It's more than a run, it's a day of rainbow fun!

The Rainbow Run is a 5k, untimed fun run. From 5km fanatics to first time runners, walkers, the over fives to teenagers and even spectators, everyone can enjoy the brightest most colourful run of the year!

Simply don your white t shirt and the paint throwers at each station will cover you from head to toe in different coloured power paint, finishing the race covered in glorious rainbow colours!  There are no winners or race times, it's all about having fun!

The most colourful 5k!
