Colourful Rainbow Runs return this summer

Registration is now open for Rainbow Run 2022

One of the UK’s most colourful fundraising fun runs; Rainbow Run is returning to Cornwall and Devon this summer.

Rainbow Run Cornwall is returning to RAF St Mawgan near Newquay on June 18 and Rainbow Run Devon will be at a new venue; Escot Park in Devon on 19 June. The event is returning this summer after a two-year break due to the pandemic, and early-bird tickets are on sale now with a 25 per cent discount.

The blue paint station at the Rainbow RunAnyone over the age of five can take part and participants will get covered in powder paint as they walk, jog or run through different coloured paint stations along the 5km route.

Back in 2019 the events saw a combined total of more than 2,500 people take part and over £100,000 raised for Children’s Hospice South West (CHSW).

CHSW event fundraiser Kiley Pearce says the event will be a fun way to start the summer, while raising funds to help provide vital care for local families who are supported by CHSW’s three children’s hospices across the south west.

“Rainbow Run is the brightest fun for everyone and we cannot describe how much we are looking forward to bringing the event back this summer” said Kiley.

It is such a fun event, and to see people reunited with friends and family, having fun and helping to raise vital funds will just be fantastic. If everyone could raise just £20 in sponsorship that could help fund one hour of care for children who use our hospices.

Covid safety measures will be in place but there is also an option to take part in a virtual Rainbow Run at home.

Kiley added; “We are really pleased to be able to continue offering our virtual options so people can do their own colourful 5km wherever they live; we also are keen for schools to take part in our Rainbow Run schools challenge, so there really is something for everyone.”

Super early-bird discount tickets are currently £15 for adults and £10.50 for children for a limited time only. Capacity for these events is limited and tickets must be pre-booked in advance.
