Exeter Westpoint will be the venue for the 2017 Children’s Hospice South West’s Rainbow Run. With seven different coloured paint stations it is, they say, set to be ‘the biggest and brightest fun run this Summer’. Held on Saturday 10 June, this fun 5K rainbow run is all about raising funds, whilst having fun, for the charity’s Little Bridge House hospice in Devon.
Featuring a large event village, spectators and runners can enjoy fun stalls, face painters, bouncy castles, live entertainment and music from Radio Exe. ‘It’s an event that appeals to all, ‘ they add, ‘from families to company team days, simply anyone who is looking for a great fun run!’
Little Bridge House offers respite and short breaks, emergency care, palliative care and end of life care for life-limited children and their families from across Devon. The Exeter Rainbow Run is its flagship fundraising event and this is the first time the event has been held at Westpoint Arena. Jayne Jarrett, events fundraiser at Little Bridge House, said: ‘We’re so excited about our 2017 Rainbow Run. With our biggest venue yet and a fabulous event village, we really hope that as many runners as possible come and join us and paint Westpoint red, orange, yellow, green, blue, pink and purple!’
The run is open to all ages, including children aged from five, and is aimed at all levels so you can jog or walk the course if you prefer. An adult entry is £17.50, Child (5-15) £11.00. There are discounts available for family tickets and groups.
