Headway Essex

Providing Brain Injury Care & Support


Saturday 15th July 2017

This event has ended

We would like to say a big thank you to everyone that attended the event, we hope you enjoyed it. 


The event which attracted everyone from sport crazy runners to families looking for a fun day out saw over 400 runners take on the 5km or 1km courses. Runners were then showered with different colour paint after each kilometre resulting in everyone becoming a multi-coloured masterpiece by the finish line.


All runners were rewarded with a medal at the end of the race but the real badge of honour was the paint smeared smiling faces. The fun was not over when the race finished as the finale of the day was a colour extravaganza which gave everyone involved the chance to throw colour at friends, family and anyone who wanted to join in the fun! 





Thank you to everyone that worked hard to help Headway Essex to make the 2017 colour5k a big success:

  • Boot Group / Ardleigh Showground
