Rossendale Colour Dash 2019


Get ready, get set for Rossendale’s amazing Colour Dash


Rossendale Hospice has opened registrations for their Colour Dash, which takes place at Marl Pits on Saturday 6th July.


The Rossendale Colour Dash is a 4km run, walk or jog starting from Marl Pits running track. Participants will be showered with coloured powder by passing through colour stations. The route takes participants up over the rugby fields and past the Golf Range.  They will then take in the fantastic views from Hurst Lane and descend back down to the Leisure Centre.


The Colour Dash is organised in partnership with Rossendale Leisure trust.  Last year almost 500 participants helped raise £16,000 for Rossendale Hospice which was started by local celebrity Ted Robbins. 


An early bird offer is up for grabs for the first 100 participants who sign up. They will get the discounted rate of £15 per adult. There are also further discounts for children. The Hospice hopes that participants will take part in fundraising to help boost funds.  The registration fees cover the cost of organising the event so they are relying on the Rossendale community to raise further money to allow the Hospice to make as much profit as possible.


This year we are also introducing new ways to fundraise for this event. Participants will be able to tailor their fundraising pack and choose from a number of items that best suits their needs. More information can be found here


We are looking for volunteers to help on the day, those interested in supporting this way should contact Joanna Williams.  There are more opportunities for businesses to sponsor colour stations and other aspects of the event.  If you would like to know more contact the fundraising department on 01706 253633 opt 3.


The Hospice has supported thousands of patients and their families over the last thirty one years and is hoping that everyone’s support in this year’s Colour Dash will help raise funds for more local people who rely on the vital services the Hospice offers.
