Have a blast at colourful 5K run for students in Sheffield

Have your say

Sheffield students are invited to take part in a fun run with a difference on May 2.

The Student Colour Run Sheffield is a 5K run in the city centre where participants get doused in coloured powder paint.

The run begins at South Street Park and comprises two laps of a route weaving through Park Hill flats, along the hillside overlooking the city and back to the park.

Organiser Neil Midgley said: “This event is for people to have the time of their lives, make memories, new friends and epic photo opportunities. Everyone is welcome, from couch potatoes to serious runners and everyone in between.

“The fun continues at the finish line with a gigantic Colour Festival, with more coloured powder plus DJ, MC and big screen.”

Tickets costing £15 are available from www.studentcolourrunsheffield.com. RAG charities will get £1 from every ticket sold.
