Colourful fun run for hospice

Big-hearted fun runners will be showered with an explosion of colour as Rainbows Hospice for Children and Young People’s Rainbow Run returns for its second year.

The Rainbow Run takes place at the Forest Recreation Ground on Sunday 2nd May from at 12 noon. Participants will get covered with brightly coloured powder as they make their way around the 5k circuit.

The crazy, colourful day will raise vital funds for Rainbows, which cares for youngsters from Nottinghamshire with life-limiting and terminal illnesses. Last year over 400 people took part raising just over £20,000.

Katie Baxter, head of community and events at Rainbows, said: “This is such a fun event and we got tremendous feedback last year. Anyone can take part and you don’t have to run, it is all about the fun and laughter and of course, raising valuable funds for Rainbows.

“We want as many people to come along wearing a white t-shirt, and running gear they don’t mind getting messy, and we guarantee they will leave with a smile and every colour of the rainbow.”

Registration opens at 10.30am for more information, visit
