Colour Run

If you haven't heard of a Colour Run get ready to be amazed! This fun family event consists of a 5km route with runners being doused in coloured intervals culminating in a 'Colour Party' at the finish line.

Our Colour Run celebrates its fifth year in 2018 and we are looking forward to making it our most colourful yet! Since it began in 2014 the Overgate Colour Run has seen more than 5,000 supporters take on the 5km course raising over £180,000 for the Hospice.

This year we are looking forward to welcoming back our host, Bazz, as he brings the most colourful party of the year to Calderdale.Our main event sponsors Orchard FM are also back to join us and we are very excited to welcome Cornerstone Recruitment as a new event sponsor this year.

Registration for this year’s event is now open and we would love to see you on the start line as we get colourful for Overgate. Because you care, we can.
