We are pleased to announce 2019’s Colour5k will take place on Saturday 29 June at Ardleigh Showground, Colchester.

If you would like more information on this event or would like to purchase tickets, please visit


Runners will take on a 5 kilometre course and enter 5 colour zones, at every kilometre colour bandits will shower them with different coloured powdered paint until they end up their own work of art! There’ll also be a Kids 1 km Fun Run so the event is open to all ages and ability of runners.

At the finish line there is a huge colour extravaganza, where participants get to throw colour at friends, family and anyone who wants to join in the fun!

Whether you’re a casual walker or regular runner, want some fun or just want to raise money for charity, you will love this event. Runners come from all different backgrounds and have one thing in common; they love fun!

If running is not for you but you would still like to participate, you can register to become a colour bandit and take on the role of throwing paint at your friends and family.

Money raised from the event will go to Headway Essex providing rehabilitation and support for brain injury survivors and their families and carers in Essex. This year, we are pleased to announce that Attwells Solicitors are sponsoring the event. The event is also supported by Boot Group who each year donate the use of their field, the Ardleigh Showground.



Thank you so much to everyone who took part in the 2018 Headway Essex Colour5k. You helped us raise an incredible £11,000 which will go directly towards providing rehabilitation and support for brain injury survivors and their families and carers across Essex.

You’ll find lots of photos taken from last year’s event on the Colour5K Facebook page.
