Hal­i­fax ready for colour

Halifax Courier - - Nostalgia - By Abi­gail Kel­lett

Over­gate Hos­pice is pre­par­ing it­self for it’s sec­ond ever 5k colour run which is tak­ing place on Satur­day July 11 at 11am. Tak­ing place in Sav­ile Park, nearly 900 peo­ple have signed up to Calderdale’s bright­est run and with 500 more signed up than last year it’s set to be big­ger and bet­ter than ever.

White cloth­ing is a must for all run­ners as they will pass through spon­sored colour sta­tions where they will be doused with sev­eral colours of pow­dered paint.

Par­tic­i­pants are free to com­plete the dis­tance as they wish, be it run­ning, walk­ing or skip­ping and char­ity mas­cot Harold the Hos­pice hair will be sup­port­ing peo­ple and get­ting messy along the way.

Re­becca Gill, Events Fundraiser said: “We are thrilled to have so many of you signed up al­ready and can­not wait to see you on the day for what prom­ises to be the most colour­ful day Hal­i­fax has ever seen!

“We are re­ally ex­cited for this year’s event and can­not thank our vol­un­teers and our spon­sor, Ben­jamin Roberts Solic­tors, enough for their sup­port.”

The run will be fol­lowed by a Colour Party hosted by Bazz from Bazzmatazz Dance Stu­dio in Hal­i­fax and song re­quests for the party can be re­quested on so­cial me­dia us­ing the hash­tag #colour­run­playlist If you would like to reg­is­ter you can do so at colour­run. over­gate­hos­pice.org.uk or call the fundrais­ing team on 01422387121 to­day
