Like the idea of these colour fun runs, but not the running part? How about the paint throwing part? Yeah? Then our Colour Me Purple would benefit from your kind of enthusiasm! This 5k route in Milton Creek Country Park includes three colour stations and marshalling points to cheer those runners on! If you don’t mind cheering, clapping and even holding a sign you’ll be great as a marshal. We need a huge team to pull of this fundraising event that supports the Wisdom Hospice with over £10,000 of fundraising.
We have many different volunteering roles available so please let us know if there is a role you are keen to do.
For example, you can help with:-
Marshalling, Spotting runners in and out, Paint Throwing, Merchandise Selling, Water Marshals and Photographers.
Details for the day are listed below but if you have any questions at all please do let us know.

Date:                                  Sunday 10th September  2023

Venue:                               Milton Creek Country Park, Sittingbourne, Kent ME10 2HA

Meeting Time:                 9.30am – for signing in and collecting a tabard.

Race Start Time:              11am

Runners should only take approximately 1½ hours but obviously, this can vary – There will be an official sweeper marshal at the end who will tell you when you can stand down. Please remember to sign back in otherwise we will be looking for you all day!!!


Parking can get busy around the area; we ask that you avoid parking in Green Porch Close and car share or use public transport where you are able.


The Friends purple tabards (which we will loan you) or t-shirts if you have one. As always, we hope for fine sunny weather, but we are not always so lucky, so please wear layers and sensible footwear. Things you don’t mind getting dirty or covered in mud or paint. And of course, if it’s a sunny day, don’t forget the sunscreen and your hat!


There will be refreshment vendors on site but please feel free to bring water and/or snacks for yourselves on the day as none are provided.
