Churchfields Farm, Droitwich SPA Sunday 1st July 2018

The Go Bright for Sight 5K Colour Run is returning to Droitwich for a 4th year on Sunday 1st July at a new and exciting venue – Churchfields Farm, Salwarpe, WR9 0AH.  Participants can run, jog, walk or dance their way through multi-coloured Paint Stations and encounter a bubble disco and super soakers!  Starting off dressed in white, by eneveryone will be covered in brightly coloured paint and smiles, having raised money for local sight loss charity Sight Concern Worcestershire. The event is open to all ages. 

Gillian Kerton  from Churchfields says, “My family has been farming this land for five generations and we’ve always believed that community spirit is important.  We are thrilled to host such a happy and memorable event that brings friends and families together to have fun and raises funds for a special local charity”. 

Physique Fitness, Bootcamp Droitwich and Julie Liggins Fitness have been actively supporting the Go Bright for Sight Colour Run for the last few years. Steve Sherry from Bootcamp Droitwich says “It’s become an important part of our fitness calendar.  Last year we recruited over 100 runners and this year we’re hoping to double it! We organise the new 5K Saturday morning run at Churchfields which is proving to be popular, so holding the Colour Run there too is a perfect fit.” Matt  Lingard from Physique Fitness said that “it’s important that local businesses work together and help local charities.”

The Go Bright for Sight Colour Run is open to all ages – walkers and runners.  Last year over 500 people took part in Droitwich and the charity raised over £6,000. Anyone with a visual impairment is particularly welcome.  Sight Concern will find sighted guides to enable people with sight loss to participate, and be an active part of their local community. Thank you to Droitwich Athletics Club for their continued support helping develop the route and marshalling and to Julie Liggins Fitness for doing the dance warm up with the crowd

Check out how much fun we had with our film:

 

Is the paint harmful?  The paint used is food grade cornstarch and is 100% natural and safe.  It is biodegradable, washes away with rain, and leaves no trace on the ground.  Each participant also receives a pair of neon sunglasses to protect their eyes. Check out the photos below of supporters testing the paint and developing the route around Churchfields Farm.
