The Event

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

Then sign up now for the See Change Colour Fun Run! You can walk, jog or run the 5KM 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 you will be expected to start fundraising sponsorship. There is no minimum amount and every penny you raise will help See Change to tackle the causes of homelessness. We empower socially excluded people to recover from hardship, grow in confidence and build a brighter future for themselves.

The Colour Fun Run will be held at Oldbury Court Estate in June 2020. An exact date will be confirmed nearer the time.

09:00 – Event Village Open

10:30 – Warm Up

11:00 – Race Start

Then stay for a picnic lunch.

The Charity

With the help of supporters like you, See Change is saving lives. By providing accommodation, support, training and employment, we give socially excluded people, including the homeless, opportunities to recover from hardship, grow in confidence and build a brighter future for themselves.

The Route

The route is a 5KM circuit of Oldbury Court Estate. There are areas on paths, across fields, on tracks and some uneven ground. There will be markers and marshals across the whole course to guide you around.

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, there is also a lot of shaded areas . It is very popular due to it’s varied landscape and panoramic views and is a great place for a family day out. There are also several picnic areas for everyone 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 Fishponds, you’ll find it hard to believe you are so close to the bustling city centre when you glimpse many of the local wildlife including kingfishers, herons, foxes and even deer.

There is limited parking on site.
