Aber Color Run - October 20th 2019

Venue: Vicarage Fields. Aberystwyth
Entry Fee: Adults – £10, Children – £5

For the first time ever Advancing Aberystwyth will be hosting ‘The Aber Color Run 2019’ – a 5KM, fun-filled and untimed event. At each kilometre mark, there will be ‘color stations’ where all Color Runners are doused from head to toe in a different coloured powder.
With only two simple rules, everyone can participate in The Color Run:
1. You wear white at the starting line
2. You finish the race plastered in colour!
Runners are asked to arrive at the Color run event from 9:30am onwards to register, pick up a goody bag and to take part in the warmup, ready to run at 11am sharp.
Once the race is over don’t run off, we have some local food stalls and some bouncing trampoline fun!
Still haven’t got your tickets don’t worry you can book your tickets here but be quick we only have limited amount available!
Proceeds from the Color event will be donated to Bobath Wales Childrens charity, so whilst your having fun getting messy you will be making a difference to lots of children around Wales.
