Race Description

After the success of last year’s event, where thousands of colour crazy runners covered themselves in multicolour, The Color Run will be back in Sunderland on 20th September 2015.

Overwhelming interest from Sunderland and the North East has seen another date added to the 2015 tour, after 30,000 happy ‘Color Runners’ of all shapes, sizes and ages have taken part in The Color Run events in London and Manchester so far this year.

The Color Run sees participants covered in bursts of coloured powder at each kilometre of the 5k route. As it’s not a timed event, friends and families can walk, jog, dance and party their way along the course at any pace.

After crossing the finish line, powdered partygoers join the Colour Festival Area to enjoy a great mix of DJs, MCs, the infamous ‘Color Throws’ plus a host of colour giveaways.

The National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children (NSPCC) is the official charity partner of The Color Run for 2015. Participants can support the children’s charity when they sign up by donating straight to the charity or setting up a fundraising page once they have entered.

NSPCC Director of Fundraising, Paul Farthing, said: “We’re absolutely delighted to be the official charity partner of The Color Run in 2015. By taking part in one of these fun, colourful events and raising money for the NSPCC, people will be joining our fight for every childhood, helping us protect children and prevent abuse here in the UK.”

This year’s event takes place at Commercial Road on Sunday 20th September 2015. Registration opens on 5th August 2015, entrants can register their interest and sign-up to the VIP priority booking window now at www.TheColorRun.co.uk/Sunderland.
