Longfield Community Hospice’s fun run, Run the Rainbow is back by popular demand, taking place at Cotswold Airport on Saturday 15th July.
This is no ordinary 5k run. Runners – or walkers, skippers or dancers – will be pelted with powder paint and fired at with foam, whilst supporting Longfield to provide much-needed care for people with life-limiting illnesses.
The route is family-friendly and there’ll be street food and plenty of lively music to keep everyone motivated to get to the finish line. Afterwards, runners can chill out with a picnic and watch the planes take off and land. There’s no charge for spectators, so family and friends can join in the fun – enthusiastic cheering is definitely encouraged. What better way to spend a summer Saturday?
Registration starts at £10. The registration fee includes entry to the race, a pair of sunglasses, a pouch of powder paint and a medal on finishing. Parking is free.
Around 85 per cent of Longfield’s funding comes from the generosity of the public. Just £55 could pay for an hour of hospice care, enabling people to die with dignity in the comfort of their own homes.
