Chase The Rainbow 5k 2017

Information and registration

14 June 2017

Chase the Rainbow - Beaumond House 5k

Wednesday 14th June

Race starts at 7pm

Last year was record breaking and saw 750 runners help us raise £22,000. Now for 2017 it's back with a new venue at Southwell Racecourse (just 10 minutes outside Newark).

Registration will open at 5.30pm and the run will start at 7.00pm.

The 5k is for all abilities – it isn’t a race so you don’t have to run! You can walk, amble, skip, hop or jump your way round.

Finish the 5k through a cloud of colourful, environmentally friendly powder paint and enjoy a fun paint fight at the most colourful, fun 5k you will ever do!

Not sure what to expect?? Look at the fun we had last year Chase the Rainbow 2016 Sign up to join in and be part of it for 2017.

Raising sponsorship

Your registration fee only covers the cost of taking part in the event.

As a local charity your sponsorship can make a massive difference to local people and those we have the privilege to care and support. Usually there is not a minimum sponsorship amount to raise as every amount no matter how small makes a BIG difference.

However as in 2017 we celebrate our 30th year of Hospice Care in Newark we would like to ask all adult runners to see if they could raise a minimum of £30 in sponsorship.

Join our Facebook event to tell your friends and family you are taking part and get them to come and join the fun too and help us spread the word!

The easiest way to get sponsorship is via our Just Giving page. It's easy to share and donate and let everyone know what you are doing.

A paper Sponsor Form is available to download, print and use should you prefer.
