A run, jog or walk

The Sue Ryder St John’s Hospice PaintRush is a 5K run, jog or walk supported by the Paint Rush event volunteer group.

With fun for all the family, this colour run makes for a great day out while raising money for Sue Ryder St John’s Hospice and the expert care we provide for people living with life-limiting conditions, as well as supporting their families.

You can enter as an individual or as a team with friends and family. The entry fee includes a PaintRush t-shirt and a bag of paint powder to start the fun before the race.

Along the route there will be eight paint stations which will coat you in a different bright-coloured paint to turn you multi-coloured. There will also be obstacles on the route and a merchandise store to make the day even more exciting.

On admission we will give you your discount voucher for the Ambience Café Restaurant.

Fundraise through JustGiving

To help us raise vital funds for our expert palliative care at Sue Ryder St John's Hospice, you can set up your own JustGiving page and collect all of your donations in one easy to reach place, keeping track of the funds raised by your supporters.

£63 could pay for 3 hours of expert compassionate care.

£145 could fund a hospice nurse for a day.

£500 could give 24 hours of care and support, allowing a family to share love in those precious final days.

There is no minimum fundraising target for this event. However, we ask participants to raise as much as they can in support of Sue Ryder St John’s Hospice.

Every donation counts and will help us continue to be there when it matters most, filling someone's last days full of love.

Frequently asked questions

What do I need to take with me?

You'll need comfortable clothes (you'll receive your white t-shirt on the day to put over the top!), and a sense of adventure! You're welcome to bring your phone for photos, but please remember it may get covered in paint, and PaintRush will not be liable for any damage. You may also need cash for parking if you are using the town car parks, but they are also payable via the MiPermit app (details on signs at the carparks).

It is advisable to wear sunglasses or goggles.

How long is the route?

The course is approximately 5k (3.1 miles) and consists of two laps of Regatta Meadows/Riverside Park

What kind of obstacles will there be?

Whilst we don't want to ruin all the surprises... you can expect a mixture of obstacles, suitable for a mix of abilities (think cargo nets and hay bales!) You do have the option to skip an obstacle if you don't fancy it though

Can I bring my dog to run with me?

Unfortunately the race is not suitable for our 4 legged friends!

Will I be able to drop my bag off at the start?

We are aiming to run a Bag Drop stand, but all items are left at the owner's risk and PaintRush will not be liable for any loss/damage of possessions. Please allow extra time prior to the start of the event to do this.

Can I participate if I am pregnant or I have some health issues?
