Are you ready to take part in the most vibrant charity fun run around?

Then sign up now for the Julian House Colour Fun Run! You can walk, jog or run the 5k route whilst being splashed with brightly coloured powder paint along the way.

It is not a timed race. It’s less about speed and fitness and more about having fun whilst getting as colourful as you can. It is suitable for all ages and abilities, so get your friends, family or colleagues together and sign up now!

By signing up today and raising sponsorship you’ll help Julian House to tackle the causes of homelessness.  We empower social excluded people to recover from hardship, grow in confidence and build a brighter future for themselves.

The Route

The Colour Fun Run route takes in in the paths, woods and rivers of Oldbury Court Estate. Sections of the route are surfaced paths and other sections are on the grass.

NB.There is one section of grass that is on a slight incline: At this point participants should take extra care. We don’t want any tears!

The Location

Oldbury Court is a beautiful and diverse estate with parkland covering over 300 acres combining woodland, riverside paths and plenty of green spaces.  The route we’ve chosen allows you to take in all the sights of the estate as you follow the winding paths down to the River Frome and through open walkways.  It is very popular due to its varied landscape and panoramic views and is a great place for a family day out.  There are also several picnic areas for once you have finished the run to sit and enjoy the rest of your day.

It is only three miles from the city centre in the Fishponds area of the City, which you’ll find hard to believe that you are so close to the centre of a bustling city, on a run that could see you catch a glimpse of many local wildlife including kingfishers, herons, foxes and even deer!

There is parking at the site, but we advise car sharing or looking at alternatives such as cycling, walking or using public transport which is easily accessible.

Volunteering
