Colour Rush

Saturday 14th September 2024

Race registration is now open! Click here to grab your spot for Colour Rush / Wheelie Rush 2024

What’s the route?
As in previous years, the Colour Rush will start at Green Lane Playing Fields. The Wheelie Rush will be an accessible route starting in Hillworth Park (route maps to be released soon)

When does the race begin?
Registration will be at 5:45pm. Please be on time for registration so everyone is ready to run when the race begins.

The ​race will begin at 6:30pm.

What’s the cost?
The entrance for the 5km colour rush is £15. As we lost our Arts Council funding in 2024, additional donations towards DOCA’s work in delivering free arts events in Devizes would be hugely appreciated. 

All entrants can claim a free souvenir t-shirt to run in, which can be collected from the Registration Tent. Please get your application in before Friday 23rd August to guarantee your t-shirt. 

If you are happy to run in your own clothes, you can help DOCA save costs and reduce our environmental impact by opting out of receiving your souvenir t-shirt. From 2024, Colour Rush t-shirts will no longer be dated with the year. This is to help DOCA achieve our sustainability goals by designing out waste created by our events. 

If you wish to run in a souvenir t-shirt, but do not want to keep it afterwards, you can donate it back to us for washing and reuse (where possible, or upcycling where not!). Thanks for helping us make this colourful event a little bit greener. 

Why should I take part?
This is a fundraiser event for DOCA, all entry fees will go towards producing high-quality and fun events in Devizes. The funds raised help support the Street Festival, Carnival, and Devizes Lantern Parade…and more importantly, it’s a fun run! You don’t have to worry about winning or losing. Enjoy the run, meet new people, create cherished family memories, and get some exercise!

Who can take part?
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 to run. 12-18-year olds can register to run on their own, but must provide us with the contact details for an adult that we can contact in the event of an emergency.
The Accessible route is Wheelchair Friendly – if you require a free carer ticket for a wheelchair user, please email
