Colour Rush

Monday 30th August

Registration from 5.45pm – Warm-up 6.15pm – Race starts 6.30pm

Originating from the Indian festival of Holi or the “Festival of Colour” Colour runs, rushes, parties have become a big thing around the globe over the last decade or so. 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. Devizes Street Festival will also be taking place during the day in the Town Centre so there will be plenty of food and trade stalls for you to refuel at the finish line.

What’s the route?

This year in addition to the main route we’ve introduced 2 new accessible routes. Take your pick!

5km Main Colour Rush

1.5km Accessible Route suitable for motor and manual wheelchairs and keeping it short.

What’s the cost?

Entrance for the 5km colour rush is £15. All entrants that register before the 8th of August will receive a souvenir T-shirt to run in. These can be collected at the registration tent. If you register before the 11th of June you can receive the early bird price of £12.50. Family early bird price is available for 2 x Adults and 2 x Children.

Why should I take part?

This is a fundraiser event for DOCA and all money raised (after the event costs) go towards supporting DOCA’s work – the Street Festival, Carnival, and Lantern Parade to name just a few. You will be helping make great things happen!
Also, importantly, this is a fun run! It’s not about the winning or the losing it’s about participating. Enjoy the run, meet new people, create 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 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, we’d love to have friends and families of runners on the sidelines and expect the runners to get completely plastered!
