Cranbrook Colour Run

Mar 13, 2024

If, when you think of running, you think of very serious looking people, lycra clad, sprinting along paths and anxiously looking at their smart watch, you need to think again. Our partners in Cranbrook, Move More Cranbrook, are putting on a running event with a difference, and it’s one that you won’t want to miss.

The Colour Run (and summer fete) will take place in Cranbrook on Saturday 6 July and guarantees to be a fun day for the whole family.

The running events consist of a 2km fun run and a 5km. Organisers say that this isn’t about how speedy you are, it’s all about people of all ages having fun and getting stuck in.

So what is a colour run, we hear you ask? Originally inspired by the Hindu festival of Holi, these short runs will take place in Cranbrook Country Park and participants will be showered at various points throughout the course, with a very safe, corn starch colour powder. It’s bright and it’s brilliant.

The running events will finish with a fun fair including bouncy castles, and traditional fair games, coconut shy, welly wanging and loads more.
