Entries invited for charity colour run at Catterick Racecourse

A local hospice charity is hoping for a repeat of one of its most successful fundraising events when it once again stages a colour run this weekend.

Last year, Herriot Hospice Homecare raised £8,000 after over 600 people took part in its first-ever colour run at Catterick Racecourse.

Now, the charity is hoping to do even better when it brings the event back to the racecourse tomorrow, Saturday.

This story continues after the adverts:


With paint cannons at every corner and multicoloured paint clouds throughout, people can either run or walk the 5k course.

Refreshments and sweet treats will be available before and after the run, and there will also be a spectator viewing area for those who want to watch their loved ones being showered in paint, but don’t want to be splattered themselves.

Entry to the race is £20 for people aged 16 and over; children aged eight to 15 will pay £10 and under-8s are free. All children under the ages of 16 must be accompanied by a capable parent or guardian).

Herriot is also asking that all adult participants aim to raise £20 sponsorship as well, if they can.

Merchandise can be purchased on the day which include paint packets, tutu’s and coveralls (for the ride home!).

An entry form, sponsorship form and terms and conditions are available from www.herriothh.org.uk/event/147
