Rainbows launches Nottinghamshire Rainbow Run

People in Nottinghamshire can get showered with an explosion of colour as our Rainbow Run is back for its second year.

The Rainbow Run takes place at the Forest Recreation Ground on Saturday 2 May from 12noon. Participants will get covered with brightly coloured powder as they make their way around the 5k circuit.

The crazy, colourful day will raise vital funds for us. Last year over 400 people took part raising just over £20,000.

Katie Baxter, head of community and events at Rainbows, said: “This is such a fun event and we got tremendous feedback last year. Anyone can take part and you don’t have to run, it is all about the fun and laughter and of course, raising valuable funds for Rainbows.

“We want as many people to come along wearing a white t-shirt, and running gear they don’t mind getting messy, and we guarantee they will leave with a smile and every colour of the rainbow.”

As well as participants, we also need volunteers armed with paint to throw at the participants as they make their way through the colour stations.

Registration opens at 10.30am and entry is adults £14, Under 15s £7, with concessions for families and teams. For more information, visit www.rainbows.co.uk/rainbowrun contact 0800 9521133 or email [email protected]
