The wait is over, St Barnabas Hospice untimed, #GetMessy fun run with powder paint aplenty is back on Saturday 16th May 2020. Now in its sixth year, the Hospice’s renowned event includes extra ‘FESTival’ style entertainment for runners and their family and friends to enjoy.

The Colour Dash Fest registration includes the paint filled 5K run around the Lincolnshire Showground with the addition of live music, entertainment and street food. If 5K seems like just a warm up to you, then why not take on our 10k or 15k distances – new for 2020!

We ask that children aged under 16 years old only take on the 5k race. If you are aged 16 and over, feel free to register for 10k or 15k – you will receive a different medal to show off your extra efforts.

The Hospice will showcase activities to support the cause throughout the year too. You will find a pop up ‘Donation Station’ to drop off brightly coloured clothes to the shops team and an ‘Adventure with St Barnabas’ display of Skydives, Wingwalks and Treks to inspire anyone looking to tick something off their bucket list.

The Colour Dash, has raised a phenomenal £720,915.80 over five years and is vital to support the running costs of the Hospice. Remember your registration fee and any money you fundraise goes directly to the Hospice to offer thousands of people each year vital, outstanding end of life care.
