Cleethorpes Biggest, Brightest, Boldest event is back for 2017!!! Now in its third year, the most vibrant and electrifying run has spread its love and colour back to Cleethorpes! The Colour Fun Run sees participants covered in bursts of coloured powder at each kilometre of the 5k route. As it’s not a timed event, friends and families can walk, jog, dance and party their way along the course at any pace. After crossing the finish line, powdered partygoers join the Colour Party Area to enjoy a great mix of music, MCs and the infamous ‘Cleethorpes Colour Party' plus a host of colour giveaways. We were overwhelmed with the positive feedback from ‘Colour Runners’ who took part last year. “The summer of 2017 promises to be even better and we’re all looking forward to seeing our friends from last year as well as plenty of first-timers!” Help paint the town yellow, red, pink and blue and sign up today!
