The Paint Runner - King George V Playing Fields, Hereford -10:00 AM

This year St Michael’s Hospice is once again bringing something quite extraordinary to Herefordshire. Inspired by the global ‘Colour Run’ craze, the Paint Runner will celebrate health, happiness, and creativity, while also giving something back to your local community.

Runners (or walkers) will start a 3 mile course dressed in white and after passing through five colour-blasting stations will finish the run with smiles as bright as the rainbows they are covered in. The day is all about having fun with friends, family and like-minded people of all ages, shapes and sizes.
As you run past Hereford's landmarks, at strategic points along the route marshals will cover you in multi-coloured powder paint. The paint is 100% non-toxic and biodegradable, and easily washes off so you can go wild and get as colourful as you can!

This promises to be a fantastic family-friendly event not to be missed!

£7.50 children, £8.50 student, £9.50 Adult, £29 Family (up to 4). This includes all the entertainment, paint and a pair of coloured neon reflective sunglasses!

You can purchase an official Paint Runner t-shirt and bag of throwing paint for just £4 prior to 29thMay. Both items are available on the day with the throwing paint used in our festival area for a mass release!

This event is ticketed and tickets are not available on the day. You must buy your place in advance.
