The Inflatable Colour Dash is back bigger, louder and more colourful than ever before! #getmessy #ICD19


The St Barnabas Hospice Colour Dash is the first and the best Colour Dash in the County. The five-kilometre run is an un-timed fun run where you will be splattered from head to toe in vibrant coloured paint. We will be adding fun new inflatables across the route for 2019 to ensure a ‘bounce-tastic’ experience to make this the best Colour Dash yet!

Don’t worry if you’re not an avid runner, you can walk, skip, dance or jump your way around the 5k route!

With four simple rules, the day is easy to follow:

  • Start wearing white (t-shirt not provided)
  • Take on the challenge of our inflatable obstacles (or go round them, we don’t mind!)
  • Finish covered in a rainbow of colour
  • Raise lots of money for St Barnabas Hospice.

The fun doesn’t stop there!

With surprises on the route, you can also enjoy a full day of action packed fun in our Colour Village, with Live DJ’s, exciting activities and delicious street food and drinks for the whole family!

Colour Waves 

We will be setting waves off every 5 minutes to ensure a much smoother start to your run, ensuring you get the best experience with all your friends and family!
