Eden Valley Hospice Colour Run

Eden Valley Hospice Colour Run


The hospice’s kaleidoscopic day of fundraising will return to Carlisle Racecourse for the third time in 2017. Bigger and better than ever before!

The 5km Colour Run, which is twice around the racecourse, is not about setting the fastest time it’s about having fun with your family, friends, work colleagues and thousands of hospice fundraisers. Whether you walk, run, dance or event conga around the route, we can guarantee you will have a bright and vibrant day.

The 2016 Colour Run raised an incredible £62,000 in aid of the hospice and we really hope to beat this total in 2017. There is no minimum sponsorship for the event, we just ask you do your very best to raise as much money as possible.

This year we will be adding a special surprise to the 5km route to make the day more entertaining and fun. All will be revealed closer to the event, so keep an eye on our website (see contact details) and social media.
