The Pilgrims Hospice Thanet 5k Colour Run is back

Hundreds of supporters will be ready to run, jog or walk along the cliff tops of Palm Bay, Cliftonville, Margate on Sunday, May 14 to raise vital funds to support palliative care.

Supporters taking part in the colour run all have something in common, raising money for Pilgrims Hospices who touch the lives of so many individuals and families throughout east Kent and sharing the experience with other hospice supporters in celebrating the lives of so many loved ones.

Karen Kenward, community fundraising manager for Pilgrims Hospice Thanet, said: “This event was an explosion of colour last year, leaving many people talking about this event for days.

” £48k was raised last year, supported by 1,411 runners, truly amazing. We are really looking forward to putting on this event for the second year, with even more colour for all. Once you sign in on the day you will be given a number, white tee shirt, glasses and a colour sachet (more available for purchase on the day) and then a new fun colour run medal.”

Taking part

The “Early Bird” is now open. £16 Adults & £10 Kids (under 11yrs)

Karen added:“The fun starts at 11.30am where everyone will be able to throw their coloured powders prior to the run. There will also be colour stations along the route. On finishing everyone will receive a “Colour Run Medal” as a huge thank you from Pilgrims Hospices for your overwhelming support to our charity.

“We look forward to seeing you in a blast of colour on the day. We advise that you get there early. Registration will open at 9am.”
