Thanet 5k Colour Run

A huge thank you to everyone who got colourful for Pilgrims at our Thanet 5k Colour Run this year.

Below, find information about Thanet 5k Colour Run 2017 to give you an idea of what future events might look like.

In 2017, participants walked, jogged and ran a route that took them along Palm Bay, beginning and ending at The Oval, Cliftonville.

We kicked off the day with a huge blast of colour, with dedicated colour stations along the route painting everyone in brightly coloured clouds as they passed through. At the finish line, our brilliant supporters received well-deserved medals as a thank you for taking part.

Family and friends joined us as spectators, and everyone enjoyed the amazing photo opportunities offered by being covered in colour.
