Event information

Pre-registration for the Thanet 5k Colour Run have now closed. But don’t worry, you can still enter on the day by arriving at The Oval, Palm Bay, Cliftonville, Margate, CT9 2GB during the registration period (9-11am) and heading to our ‘On the day’ check-in desk.


This family-friendly 5k colourful event brings much fun and laughter, which is exactly what we need to brighten everyone’s spirits this year. Take in amazing coastal views as you run and walk through clouds of brightly coloured powder around the route. Gather friends and family to join the energetic atmosphere of people running, jogging and walking along Thanet’s spectacular seafront.

Entry includes a white t-shirt, paint sachet, funky sunglasses and finisher’s medal.

Catering will be available for purchase on site.
