Student Colour & Obstacle Run Saturday 29th April 2017

A happy, colourful, messy, 5K run with inflatable obstacles in an amazing urban setting.

For students and student friendly people of Sheffield. A completely unique experience, run (walk, jog or hop) a unique route, joining thousands of participants, get fit, get colourful, make memories, make a mess, make new friend!

Our 2017 event will be our wildest yet as we add inflatable obstacles to the run. Not only will you get showed in coloured powder as you go, you’ll also clamber over inflatable obstacles.

The run starts at 2pm. Please arrive around 1pm to get your colour, enjoy the colour throwing and join in the warm-up.

The rules are simple:

Wear your exclusive white Student Colour Run Tshirt (you get this with your ticket race pack).

Finish the event plastered in colour.

Have an amazing time!

WHAT IS THIS ALL ABOUT?

We combine the awesome atmosphere and energy of a student party with fitness, happiness, feeling of wellbeing and unadulterated fun of a colour run.

Participants run (walk, skip or hop) a unique 5K urban route and get showered in coloured powder and clamber over inflatables. Enjoy the big stage madness before the run with a colour fight and mass warm-up, and continue the chaos at the finish line.

This years added inflatables are giant blow up ‘beds’ which allow lots of participants on at the same time (unlike similar events which make runners queue and go in single file). Feel free to bypass the inflatables if you want to complete the course in a quick time.

Our previous two events in 2015 and 2016 both sold out. See the photos to get a flavour of what to expect here
