The Colour Fun Run which takes place at Oldbury Court Estate on Sunday 2nd October

I’m organising The Colour Fun Run which takes place at Oldbury Court Estate on Sunday 2nd October.  It is a fundraiser for homeless charity Julian House and last year was really popular with the local community in Fishponds, Downend, Emersons and Mangotsfield with around 2/3 of those taking part from the local area so we’re keen to build on this for this year and show people how great Oldbury Court is.

It is open to all ages and last year the children taking part absolutely loved it!  Incase you’re not familiar with the event it is a 5km course through Oldbury Court which you can run, walk or even skip whilst getting splashed with brightly coloured powder paint.

Lots of families took part last year and had huge amounts of fun so we’ve introduced a family ticket this year meaning they’ll save a bit of money too!  There will be face painting, music and food and drink on offer so guaranteed a fun day out.

If you need anymore info please do let me know and I hope you will be able to share.

Thanks and best wishes
