Suffolk Mind Colour Rush

Oct 05, 2024 10:00

Suffolk Mind’s first ever mass participation event


The Colour Rush will take place on Saturday 5 October 2024 at Trinity Park, Ipswich.

There are two trails to choose from:

A 3k trail (11.30am start) open to the whole family (age 6+)

1.5k trail (11.40am start) ideal for juniors (age 4 – 6 years) and their supporting adults

This is a family fun run with a difference, for people of all ages and abilities.

Colour Rush sees participants in white t shirts (buy Suffolk Mind ones here) walk, jog, or run through a variety of coloured paint stations, getting covered shoulder to knee in bright powdered paint!

At just under two miles, 3k is ideal for families or groups having a go at their first run. It’s a fun, achievable event for everyone with no pressure to finish in a certain time.

Our junior trail (just under one mile), is perfect for our youngest runners.

On crossing the finish line, all participants will receive a bespoke Colour Rush medal and enjoy the sense of achievement from having supported Suffolk Mind, and mental health services in the county, at the same time.

While fundraising for this event is not compulsory, we very much hope you will set up a fundraising page on our website and support us in making Suffolk the best place in the world to talk about and take care of mental health.

Every £25 raised could support the running of our vital phone line (which receives around 100 calls a day) for one hour.
