Saturday 31st August 2019
Registration from 5.45pm
Race starts 6.30pm
Colour runs, rushes, parties etc. have become a big thing around the globe over the last decade or so. Originating from the Indian festival of Holi or the “Festival of Colour”. The festival signifies the victory of good over evil, the arrival of spring, and for many a festive day to meet others, play and laugh – a perfect event to compliment the Confetti Battle where the Colour Rush ends.
This year’s event has been moved to a Saturday so there isn’t such a rush for those that work during the week, and, along with the Confetti Battle, is part of a colourful finale to the Street Festival Fortnight!
We have had over 200 people take part in 2018 – and we still want to make it bigger. Enter early to be guaranteed a Devizes Colour Rush souvenir T-shirt
All entrants are asked for £15 entry fee and will receive a souvenir T-shirt to run in and a bottle of water awaiting you at the finish. All entry fees will help DOCA continue producing high-quality and fun events such as the Street Festival, Carnival, and another Colour Rush in 2019.
Come along and get pelted with paint – We expect everyone to look like a rainbow by the end of it! Starting at the Green Lane Playing fields, running through Drew’s Pond Woods and Hillworth Park, finally finishing at the Market Place for the big Confetti Battle!
The race is open to anyone over 8 years old! All 8-12-year olds must be accompanied by an adult who is also registered. 12-18-year olds can register to run on their own, but must provide us with the contact details for an adult we can contact in the event of an emergency.
Prefer to support on the side-lines? Contact us about getting involved at one of our colour stations – we’ll be looking for people to help throw paint and expect the runners to get completely plastered!
