RUNNERS will once more have the chance to get colourful as a popular charity race is set to return to Worcester.

Following the success of previous years, St Richard’s Hospice is offering people the chance to take part in the popular Rainbow Run on Sunday (July 10) at the new University of Worcester Lakeside Campus, previously known as Top Barn Activity Centre.

Anyone over the age of eight can take part in the 2.5 km and 5 km routes where participants wear a white sports kit and can run, walk, skip or dance around the route while getting showered with colours of the rainbow.

Jodi Brandwood, events and challenges fundraiser at St Richard’s Hospice, said: “We are delighted to be able to offer our third Rainbow Run. Our previous events have been incredibly popular and many of those who took part have already signed up to next month’s event.

“The money raised goes towards funding specialist care and support for those at the end of their lives, so this is a day of fun with a serious message.”

Chris Guillaume, from Open GI, said: “We are delighted to sponsor the Rainbow Run as part of our 2016 partnership with St Richard’s Hospice. It promises to be a great event for all ages and we encourage everyone to get involved and support the fantastic work being done by the hospice.”

Dogs are not allowed to participate and children aged eight-16 must be accompanied by an adult.

The event start will be staggered from 11am to take into consideration the safety of all participants.
