"Get colourful for Florence this October!"

Be a rainbow at Colour Rush!

What a fantastic day we had on Sunday 9 October 2016 at Colour Rush! Over 550 men, women and children of all ages took part, and they raised over £14,000 for the Hospice!

Colour Rush 2017 will take place on Sunday 8 October at 11am and 2pm!

There are loads of photos and comments to see on our Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/florencenightingalehospice/

Buy official photos and raise more pounds for the Hospice

Our official photographer, Derek Pelling, took lots and lots of photos of everyone at the event and they are available to order as prints or high resolution downloads from just £4 - a great Christmas or birthday present! Click here to go to Derek's site where you can view the images and order them. Derek donates £1 from every order to the Hospice! Thank you, Derek!

What is Colour Rush?

It's a 5k circular route which you can run, jog or walk, but with a difference! Every kilometre there is a colour station where the runners get showered with multi-coloured powder so everyone becomes a human rainbow by the finish!

It's open to the whole family, with a 'Mini-Rush' taking place before the main event for any little ones who want to be part of this spectacular event, but who might not manage the full 5k! (Please note: children under 5 are welcome to take part in the 5k event, but it is the parent's responsibility to ensure their safety.)

When and where is it?

In 2017, Colour Rush will take place at 11am AND 2pm on Sunday 8th October 2017, the final day of Hospice Care Week.

The venue is ALF Green Park - click here for directions.
