The Overgate Hospice colour run has been rescheduled for Saturday July 26.

The run was due to take place on Saturday, but was cancelled due to adverse weather conditions.

The event is the first of its kind in Halifax.

From 11am, Savile Park will be an explosion of colour as runners are bombarded with powdered paint every one kilometre.

All participants are encouraged to wear white at the start of the run and finish plastered in colour- all in the name of a great cause.

Funds raised will be donated to Overgate Hospice and with almost 500 people signed up, the run promises to be a fantastic experience for all involved.

The fun doesn’t stop at the finish line and after the run there will be a huge colour party to celebrate.

Registration is open once again for anyone who is yet to sign up, and those who don’t register prior to the event can do so on the day.

Those who registered for the original date, but cannot attend on Saturday can contact the hospice on 01422 387121 for more information.
