Headway Essex to hold its sixth Colour5k event – Saturday 30 June 2018!

Headway Essex, the brain injury charity, announces it will be holding its sixth annual Colour5K at Ardleigh Showground on Saturday 30 June 2018.

Runners will take on a 5 kilometre course and enter 5 colour zones, at every kilometre colour bandits will shower them with different coloured powdered paint until they end up their own work of art! There’ll also be a Kids 1 km Fun Run so the event is open to all ages and ability of runners.

This year, Headway Essex are pleased to announce that Kent Blaxill are sponsoring the event. Managing Director, Simon Blaxill said, “As a family-owned company, we have been evolving in the building materials supply industry for 180 years. It is exciting for Kent Blaxill to support this wonderful local family event and of course, the theme of colour fits perfectly as we supply both retail and trade with a wide range of paints from Dulux and Crown trade paints through to big designer names such as Farrow and Ball. We are thrilled to be part of the Celebration of Colour with Headway Essex.”

At the finish line there is a huge colour extravaganza, where participants get to throw colour at friends, family and anyone who wants to join in the fun!

Whether you’re a casual walker or regular runner, want some fun or just want to raise money for charity, you will love this event. Runners come from all different backgrounds and have one thing in common; they love fun!

If running is not for you but you would still like to participate, you can register to become a colour bandit and take on the role of throwing paint at your friends and family.

Tracy Wellsted, Headway Essex’s Fundraising Manager says; “The event is now in its sixth year and seems to be getting bigger and better; we’re especially thrilled to have Kent Blaxill on board this year. This run is great to do with family, friends or colleagues, the priority isn’t speed, it’s to have fun! Runners from previous years always leave with paint in their hair and a massive smile on their faces.”

This exciting event is being held to raise money for local brain injury charity Headway Essex. Money raised from the event will go towards providing rehabilitation and support for brain injury survivors and their families and carers in Essex.

The event is also supported by Boot Group who each year donate the use of their field, the Ardleigh Showground.
