Lisburn & Castlereagh City Council is excited to host the craziest and most colourful 5K run, ‘The Color Run’, on Saturday 2nd June at 11am at Wallace Park, Lisburn.
Dubbed the ‘Happiest 5K on the planet’, the Council is encouraging family and friends to register now and prepare to be doused in a rainbow of vibrant colour.
Speaking prior to The Color Run, the Mayor of Lisburn & Castlereagh City Council, Councillor Tim Morrow said, “I am extremely delighted to be launching the second year of the Color Run in Wallace Park. The event proved very popular last year with both the Color Run and Color Dash attracting hundreds of participants to both events. I am confident this year’s event will build on this success with more people of all ages enjoying a fun activity while helping to raise vital funds for my chosen charities, The Corrymeela Community and Habitat for Humanity.
“I would encourage everyone to sign up as early as possible, come along and create colourful memories with friends and family.”
Chairman of the Council’s Leisure and Community Development Committee, Alderman James Tinsley added, “This is a fantastic event to bring the community together for a fun morning with family or friends. The 5k route is suitable for all ages and levels of fitness and you can choose to walk or dance your way round the course if running isn’t for you.
“It promises to be a bright morning of fun at Wallace Park so if you would like a little colour in your life, then sign up today!”
The entry fee is £10.00 per adult and £5 for children under 12, which includes sunglasses. Participants should wear white or light coloured clothing to make the most of the event. All colours are made of natural powders. Children must be accompanied by an adult.
