University of Hull Colour Run

The University of Hull Sport Development team are proud to announce their annual colour run in partnership with Guide Dogs!

On Saturday the 13th October we will be hosting a colour run down at the Lawns Centre for student’s staff and members of the community. This event is open to all ages and accommodates for children who are accompanied by adults! This is event is perfect fun for the family and promises not to disappoint. This event follows the footsteps of last year’s record number of participants – 250, which was shortlisted for an award at the Yorkshire university sports awards! Working together with Guide Dogs will help us raise the awareness of the event and the work of fantastic charity, so expect lots of doggy filled treats in there as well

To start lots of runners start the day in a white t-shirt, getting covered from head to toe in a rainbow of colours at each kilometre of the course. Oh, and did we mention you don’t even have to run? You can choose to walk, skip or dance your way around if you feel like it. It’s all about the fun and what gives you the biggest smiles. Come and join the Colour Run for an event that you definitely will not forget!

Distance: 3k – three laps around the outskirts of the Lawns Centre, however, you don’t have to run, you can walk, dance or jog, it’s entirely up to you! Alternatively, if you’re feeling adventurous and want to do run more than 3 laps on the day, that is also allowed.

A small message from Guide Dogs – Every hour in the UK, someone loses their sight. There are almost two million people in the UK currently living with sight loss. By 2050, this number is predicted to double.

Guide Dogs aim is simple: We want people who are blind and partially sighted to enjoy the same freedom of movement as everyone else. We work with people of all ages, from all different backgrounds; from parents with babies who have just been diagnosed with sight loss to people in their 80s and 90s. Our services help people to do the simple things that sighted people often take for granted, like travelling to work or school, popping out for groceries or meeting up with friends.

A partnership with the University of Hull for this year’s colour run event will help us to raise awareness of our life-changing services and help us reach those who need our help.
