Sunday 21st May will see Wincanton Racecourse come alive with colour at St. Margaret’s Great Somerset Colour Run.
The racecourse, more used to seeing the sedate colours of racing silks, will explode with colourful powder
paint. While hundreds of participants run, walk, skip or hop the 5k route, an army of volunteers will be taking aim and throwing brightly coloured paint, making the kilometres race by.
1,400 people took part, raising over £60,000 which paid for a whole week of community care across Somerset.
Richard Wallace, Events Manager at St. Margaret’s Hospice, said “We were once again blown away with the amount of people who took part in last year’s Colour Run. The amount raised was truly amazing and it was such a wonderful day. This year we’ve moved the run to Wincanton Racecourse and we hope the new location appeal to even more people.”
