Voice team to take part in Colour Fun Run
Published on: 30 Sep 2016
A TEAM from Downend Voice is limbering up to take part in a charity Colour Fun Run event this weekend.
Publisher Gary Brindle will lead his team around a 5km route through the beautiful Oldbury Court Estate to help raise money for homeless charity Julian House.
The event involves participants getting covered in colourful - but washable - powder paint. Along every kilometre of the route is a paint station where race marshalls do their best to get everyone covered in paint.
The run is untimed which means people can run, jog, walk, skip or even dance their way around the route, which takes in the paths, woods and rivers of the estate.
The fun kicks off at 12 noon on Sunday October 2 with an Event Village featuring food, drink, music and face painting.
At 1.30pm there will be a mass stretch and flex warm-up to get the blood pumping before the actual race starts at 2pm.
Mr Brindle said he was looking forward to taking part: "It's a great way of raising money for a good cause whilst having good fun at the same time. It sounds very relaxed which means there's no pressure to get in lots of training beforehand.
"I have persuaded my team to join me and everyone is really looking forward to it."
