This Summer’s Best Fun Runs and Walks

The season of sun, sea, sand and fun runs is almost upon us. Whether you want to take a leisurely stroll or shower under kaleidoscopic colour, there's an event for you...

As summer approaches, we’re beginning to fill our calendars with summer holidays, trips to the seaside and picnics in the park. But a new phenomenon has swept the nation in recent years – summer fun runs and walks. In between those traditional summer pastimes, why not join the masses and schedule in a fun run, walk or obstacle course?

Wherever you are in the UK and whatever your motivation may be,to get fit or support a charity that means something to you, there’s a fantastic event for you to get involved in.

Known as the ‘Happiest 5k on the Planet’, last year The Color Run saw more than 85,000 ‘Color Runners’ of all shapes, sizes, ages and abilities get stuck into the spirit of one of the most colourful events in the UK.
The Color Run is not timed, so you can walk, jog, dance and party your way along the course at any pace. You’ll start in a white t-shirt and pass ‘colour zones’ at every kilometre where you’ll be covered in different hues of colour. There’s no way you’ll finish the ‘Happiest 5k’ without being covered from head to toe in kaleidoscopic colour.
At the finish line, colour covered partygoers join the Festival Area to enjoy a great mix of DJs, MCs, the infamous ‘Color Throws’ plus a host of colour crazy giveaways.
£26 each if you enter as a team, £28 if you’re entering solo, children aged 5 and under go free.
