Event description
Brighten up your weekend and get doused in coloured powder on this 2.5km family fun run/walk

About this Event

Stratford District Youth Council invites everyone to leap for joy this leap year as they bring Colour In The Park back for 2020 on Saturday 29 February.

The young and young at heart will love getting doused in coloured powder as they run or walk 2.5km around King Edward Park. Add more good vibes with music and food before the final colour throw, and the event brings a burst of energy to one of Stratford’s much-loved green spaces.

The event is a colourful and creative way of spending time with family and bringing the community together.

Make sure you remember to bring towels and a spare change of clothes (for the ride home), wear black or white for the best colour outcome and photo opportunities. It’s also important to bring your water bottle, sunglasses for eye protection and if you suffer from a respiratory illness, a dust mask is best.
