Getting to Green Park
Parking is limited so please car-share or take a taxi if at all possible. Please click here for a map and details of the parking available.
Imagine clouds of colour and a crowd of rainbow-coloured people, throw in a fun-filled 5k run or walk in a beautiful country park with people you love and you’ve got the fantastic family experience that is the Colour Rush!
What is Colour Rush in Aston Clinton?
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!
Hosted by Green Park, Aston Clinton, 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 their parent or carer’s responsibility to ensure their safety.)
It’s not just for fun though – Colour Rush helps Florence Nightingale Hospice Charity raise crucial funds for Florrie’s Children’s Team, which provides care for children suffering with life-limiting illness in their own home. Any sponsorship you can raise from your friends and family will enable our nurses to provide relief for parents and guardians caring for children with long-term illnesses.
When and where is it?
Colour Rush will take place at 11am AND 2pm on Sunday 8th October 2017, at Green Park in Aston Clinton.
The venue is ALF Green Park, Stablebridge Road, Aston Clinton, Bucks HP22 5NE – click here for directions.

Colour Rush raised just over £14,000 last year, which went towards care by the Florrie’s Children’s Team for children with terminal or life-limiting illness. It is a vital source of income for the Charity, and so we would be very grateful if all participants could try to raise a minimum of £25 in sponsorship. Click here to download a Sponsorship Form (pdf download), or you can set up an online sponsorship page on Justgiving or on Make-a-Donation when you register online.
Any adult that raises over £150 will get their registration fee refunded.
It sounds amazing – how do I sign up?
Choose either the morning or afternoon start time. Grab a coffee and a snack before you start at 11am or treat the kids to a burger or sausage in a bun for lunch before the 2pm fun begins – we’ve thought of everything to make it a fab experience for all ages.
Online booking has now closed but you can still turn up on the day and register – please arrive early so that we can process your registration.
Good luck with your fundraising and we’ll see you there in a blaze of colour!
