Last year's UCLan Colour Fun run

Early bird discount available for annual event on 6 May

The University of Central Lancashire’s (UCLan) annual Colour Fun run is back for the third year in a row with an early bird discount available for runners keen to sign up straight away.

The annual 5km event at UCLan Sports Arena, where runners are showered with brightly coloured powder paint as they travel the course, will take place on Saturday 6 May at 12noon with local charity Rock FM’s Cash 4 Kids being named as the official charity of the event.

An early bird discount of £7.50 for UCLan staff and students and £12.50 for the public is available from 1 - 14 February for runners who want to secure a place early.

We are absolutely delighted to be partnering the UCLan Colour Fun run and cannot wait to see all the amazing fundraisers covered in clouds of rainbow paint.

UCLan Sports Motivator Tom Ascroft said: “The UCLan Colour Fun run has grown in popularity since it was launched in 2015 and we’re expecting even more people to sign up this year.  Our aim has always been to encourage the local community to have fun and get active while raising money for a worthy local charity at the same time.  I’m sure we’ll do Rock FM’s Cash 4 Kids proud this year.”

Nikki Thompson, Cash 4 Kids Charity Manager, said: “We are absolutely delighted to be partnering the UCLan Colour Fun run and cannot wait to see all the amazing fundraisers covered in clouds of rainbow paint.  All money raised by Rock FM’s Cash for Kids stays right here in Lancashire to support disabled and disadvantaged children. We are very proud of our links with UCLan and this event will further strengthen our partnership.”
