Be prepared to get drenched in the rainbow and run, walk or dance the 5km of happiness in aid of our Thorpe Hall Hospice.

Team up with friends, family, workmates or just a bunch of strangers and join the most colourful event of the summer as the Fun Colour Rush Tour arrives in Peterborough.

Wave after wave of colour will greet hundreds of Colour Rush runners and walkers on the 5km (that’s 3 mile) outdoor course following staggered starts over an hour.

Raise sponsorship for Thorpe Hall

Sue Ryder Thorpe Hall Hospice is the Colour Rush’s chosen charity so we would love businesses, groups, families and friends taking part to pledge to raise cash for incredible care.

Contact our fundraising team and we will sign you up!

You can also find out how they can support your efforts to raise money for your local Sue Ryder hospice.
