NST Summer Colour Run

SUMMER EVENT – COLOUR RUN! - Saturday18th June 11am-3pm

Northmead School field (entrance off Deeprose Close)

£14 per ticket

What is a colour run?

Although this is a ‘run’ in name, most participants won’t actually have to! Instead, you will be getting sprayed with colour, clambering over straw bales, getting a bit wet, crawling, balancing, jumping, doing a funny walk and will end up a wonderful technicolour version of yourself!. The event is more focused on fun rather than being challenging!

Come for a crazy warm up with a Zumba teacher and stay for the colour throwing after party!

What if it rains? Well, you’ll add the fun of ‘dancing in the rain’ to the activities!

The event we will also have: 

  • Food and drinks stalls
  • Sweet tombola
  • Pocket money stall with some colour run extras (more powder for the party, neon face paint stripes anyone?)
  • Your favourite traditional summer fair games

What is included in the price?

  • Colour run obstacle race
  • White T-shirt
  • Sunglasses
  • Participation medal
  • Small bag for the colour throwing party

Further Details

This event is open to the local community. Parentmail is therefore offering advance tickets at a special discounted price for Northmead friends and family.

There are restrictions on numbers for each run, so these are sold on a first come, first served basis. Get in there quick!

This is a ticket only event and wristbands issued. Please note, this is our only summer event this year, a traditional fair on the school playground will not be taking place.

What is the ‘colour’?

Colour Powder Clean-Up:

They are easily rinsed out – but they are still colouring agents. Therefore, we recommend that visitors do not wear their best outfit to a colour run. Colouring agents can always leave behind a minor sheen in hair, blonde hair is a little more susceptible, and previously dyed or bleached hair also absorb colour more easily. A bandanna of some hair oil offers adequate protection. Colour powder easily rinses off one’s skin. With just some soap and water, the colours usually disappear following the first wash. But it is not impossible that some colour powder may remain inside wrinkled skin or, for example, under one’s nails.

Colour Powder Safety and Ingredients:

Our colours are EU certified. The main component of our colours is corn flour. The colours we will be using are of the highest quality. The colouring agents used in our colour powders are E-number food additives also used in the food industry in the EU.

In addition, we add certain minerals to ensure our colours are non-flammable and non-combustible.
