The countdown to colour craziness has begun!

09 September 2014

There are now only seven days until Rowcroft Hospice’s The Colour Rush hits the shores of South Devon. Follow this checklist to make sure you are totally ready for South Devon’s brightest ever 5k, and thank you, once again, for your AMAZING support!

Check you have your participant number

You should have received this in your Information Pack which has been sent to you in the post. If for any reason you haven’t, or if your participant number doesn’t match the number detailed in your letter, please let us know by sending us an email

Find your brightest whites

We’d recommend wearing the brightest whites you can find on Saturday, or we’d love to see how imaginative you can get with your fancy dress. Whatever you wear, prepare to turn it rainbow coloured from 2pm!

Get pledging

Let us know how much you pledge to raise for Rowcroft by completing your pledge card online, or bringing it with you to hand to us on Saturday. If you’ve already collected the money you’ve raised, hand it to us at the event, and we’ll tot up the total! 

Remember merchandise money

We will have a number of Colour Rush goodies available for you to purchase on the day (including extra bags of paint!), as well as stalls selling refreshments, so remember to pack your pennies!

If you have any other questions between now and this weekend please do get in touch by sending us an email or calling us on 01803 217641. You can also keep in touch with our latest news by following The Colour Rush page on Facebook.

See you on Saturday at 2pm!
