Notts: Local runners needed to spread colour for Rainbows

A children’s Hopsice is looking for runners from across Notts to take part in its first ever colour run in Nottingham.

Rainbows Children’s Hospice is holding the 5k Rainbow Run at the Forest Recreation Ground on Sunday, 4th May from 11am.

Participants will experience an explosion of colour as they make their way around the circuit, getting showered with brightly coloured powder.

The event will raise vital funds for Rainbows Hospice, which cares for youngsters with life-limiting and terminal illnesses.

This year, Rainbows is celebrating 20 years of care and to commemorate its birthday, the charity wants to raise an extra £100,000 over the year to help fund more children’s nurses.

Katie Baxter, community and events manager at Rainbows, said: “This is the first event of this kind to happen in Nottingham and we need the community to sign up. We are also delighted to have the support of Capital FM’s Drivetime presenters Claire and Tom, who will be at the event.”

As well as runners, Rainbows also needs volunteers to throw paint at the participants as they make their way through the colour stations.

Entry for the event is £10, for more information, visit contact 0800 9521133 or email [email protected]
