Back by popular demand – Colour the Coast

Colour the Coast is back by popular demand on Sunday August 11th and once again all in aid of St Michaels Hospice.

Colour the Coast is one of the most colourful fun runs you can experience and is great to do with friends, family or colleagues, it’s all about having a good time – it is less about speed and more about having fun say the organisers.


Along the five kilometre course are five different colour zones the runners will pass through and as they do hospice volunteers known as ‘Cheery Chuckers’ will shower the runners and their white Colour the Coast t-shirt with special, 100 per cent safe, colour powder.

As runners go around the course the colours build, until they become what organisers hope will be a multi-coloured masterpiece. At the finish line, there is a party to where everyone who has taken part can celebrate together, and can throw coloured powder into the sky, creating colour clouds while they enjoy the music.
