Thanet 5k Colour Run 2023

Sunday 1 October 2023

We're back to colour the coast!

This family-friendly 5k event is an explosion of colourful fun. 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.

By taking part in the Thanet 5k Colour Run, you'll be helping Pilgrim Hospices to continue caring for people right across east Kent who are facing a life-limiting illness.

Start your fundraising today!


We anticipate more than 1,000 participants including runners, joggers and walkers joining us on the day. All are welcome to support Pilgrims. We encourage you to register early to make the most of the reduced price entry.

Entry includes a white t-shirt, paint sachet, funky sunglasses and finisher's medal. We encourage you to consider the environment and bring your own plain white t-shirt to wear on the day. We provide the white t-shirts for event safety and colour protection, but if you can recycle an old one, then that is appreciated.

This year, our participant wristbands are also environmentally friendly! Each wristband is bio-degradable and contains wild flower seeds within the band, meaning you can take it home and plant it in your garden!

Catering will be available for purchase on site.
