Student Colour Run Saturday 4th May 2019

Get Colourful. Test Yourself. Party!

A happy, colourful, messy, 5K run in an amazing colourful urban park.

A unique experience for students and student friendly people of Sheffield. Run (walk, skip or dance) a scenic route, joining thousands of participants, get fit, get colourful, make a mess, dance, party.

Our 2019 event will be our wildest yet as we return to the awesome setting of Crookes Valley Park, Weston Park and Sheffield University campus. As well as the start line music and party, we add amplified music to each colour throwing station! Sing and dance as you get covered in colour.

Non-students are welcome!

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 run plastered in colour.

Have an amazing time.


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 dance) a unique 5K route around Crookes Valley Park and Weston Park and get showered in coloured powder. Enjoy the big stage madness before the run with music, a colour fight and mass warm-up, and continue the chaos at the finish line.
