Returning for its fourth year, the Manorlands PaintRush is a 5K run, jog or walk supported by Manorlands Riddlesden and East Morton Fundraising Group.

About the colour run
The entry fee includes a PaintRush t-shirt and a bag of paint powder to start the fun before the race.
Along the route there will be seven paint stations that will coat you in a different bright-coloured paint to turn you multi-coloured.
There will also be obstacles on the route, a merchandise store and a raffle to make the day even more exciting.
And the fun doesn't stop when the race is over...
Goody bags will be given out at the end of the race along with your Manorlands PaintRush medal.
Following the event there will be a family fun day with music, food and a bar, so make a day of it and stay through the afternoon.

The event start
The organisers retain the right to make a change to the advertised start time and to stagger the start if necessary.
Terrain and obstacles
The terrain for this event is 95% grass and 5% rough track, which can both be slippery, especially in wet conditions, and participants should therefore wear appropriate footwear.
The course will be mainly flat with the exception of a 20m-long incline and a 20m-long descent. Within certain colour stations basic obstacles will be placed in order to slow down participants; this will make them easier to hit with the throwing powder. Participants should be aware that these obstacles are in place and follow marshals' instructions to enter these areas.
In one area, people dressed as Mascots will be on the course with sponge paint dabber gloves on, dabbling people with the sponge hands as they run past them, and they have limited vision so may not be accurate. Sue Ryder is aware that some people may not want to take part in this part of the activity and so anyone who wishes not to be touched should run down the ’untouchable’ lane.
By participating, participants agree to take part in post-walk publicity, which may include interviews, photography and/or filming for Sue Ryder internal communications, local and/or national media.
Participants are personally responsible for updating the organisers with any new address and telephone details. All participants must provide emergency contact details. In the case of an emergency, the organisers may use the Emergency Contact details provided by you to contact your home or office.
