Colour Run - Fun for all the family!

Sunday 12 May 2024 - 2pm start

Prospect Park, Reading, Berkshire, RG30 2ND

  • Now in its 3rd year, the First Days Colour Run at Prospect Park is a fantastic family event where you go home a completely different colour to the one you arrived!
  • A 2.5km lap which you can walk, run, skip once or twice.
  • Four paint stations on each lap. 

What's Included:

  • Bespoke event medal for every finisher.
  • Colour Run event white t-shirt.
  • Well marshalled and signed course.
  • Paint throwers at each paint station - you can purchase additional paint if you wish to throw it amongst yourselves on the day.
  •  Free onsite parking

Safety precautions:

  • All entrants must wear eye protection in the form of sunglasses or goggles - there is an option to purchase sunglasses in advance or on the day.
  • Coloured powder is not to be thrown into faces, always aim for the shoulders and lower.
  • For safety reasons, all children under 14 must be accompanied by an adult onsite at the event.  

What is the colour powder being used?

The coloured powder used at the event is made from food grade cornstarch. As with any substance, the aim is to keep it out of your eyes and mouth and our colour ninjas will be aiming for shoulders and lower.


Based on the current cost of living, we fully appreciate just how challenging it is to make finances balance at the moment. With this in mind, and wanting to make the event accessible to as many people as possible, we have a tiered pricing option. We would ask you to consider the level that feels appropriate to your circumstances.
