It's time to get Colourful! Oakhaven's Colour Run is in Brockenhurst on 15th May

It's time to get colourful for Oakhaven Hospice!

The Colour Run in aid of Oakhaven Hospice will take place on 15th May at Brockenhurst College in the heart of the New Forest.

colour run 300x199This 4km course gives you the opportinity to turn yourself from a blank canvas into a human kaleidoscope!

 

Dressed in a white t-shirt, you will whizz through colour stations where you will be showered in clouds of brightly coloured powder paint. Don’t worry, the paint is non-toxic, safe and biodegradable, although sunglasses and a closed mouth are both recommended! Come and join the party for a fun run, jog or walk.

 

You will end up every colour of the rainbow, so organisers recommend not to come along wearing your best clothes. The paint does wash out but in some cases can stain. Participants will receive a white t-shirt and sunglasses to wear on the day and are recommended to wear old trainers or comfortable shoes.

 

If you are not taking part in the run, please do come along and watch! It is quite a sight! Spectators and participants will have the opportunity to purchase paint, which can be thrown after the finish in a “paint throwing zone.” Be aware that if you are spectating you are just as likely to get paint over yourselves, so do wear old clothes!

 

Please note that dogs are not permitted on college grounds.
