About the run
The course: Participants make their way around a 5km course, while being showered with brightly coloured powder by foodbank volunteers.
Who can take part: It’s an event for all the family, with an emphasis on fun over athletic prowess. So if running isn’t your thing, it’s fine to walk! (But if you like a challenge, the event record is 26 minutes.)
Extras: Every registered participant gets a commemorative medal. We’ll even throw in a pair of sunglasses, and an official Colour Run t-shirt.
How to enter
Register on our Eventbrite page. Entry costs just £25. The registration amount enables us to provide a food parcel for one person for a 3 days. Team entry couldn’t be simpler: Just make the appropriate number of runner registrations and drop us a line to let us know your team name.
Runner with highest sponsorship
We do ask runners to try to get sponsors so that we can get food parcels to even more people.
You could ask friends, family, and colleagues to sponsor you. If you work for a medium- or large-sized company, you might be surprised at how willing they can often be to make a generous corporate donation. Either way, it’s important to set yourself a goal and start finding sponsors right away, because you won’t want to miss your target.
There are two ways to raise money:
Online. You can set up a VirginMoneyGiving account and send a link to friends, family and other contacts so they can easily sponsor you online. You’ll have your own fundraising page, and donations are forwarded auomatically to Luton Foodbank. No need to worry about collecting the money from people, and we receive the money you raise directly. To use VirginMoneyGiving, first set up an account here, then click the “Start fundraising” button at the bottom of this page.
Sponsor form. Download and print the sponsorship form from our website. Get your sponsors to enter their details and the amount they want to give. Once the money is collected, please bring it to Luton Foodbank, or send a cheque made out to “Luton Foodbank Ltd”, to PO Box 1379, Luton LU1 9PS. Please send sponsorship money to arrive by 16th March 2019.
Whichever method you choose, please encourage your sponsors to tick the Gift Aid box, as this adds 25% to their donation at no extra cost to them. If you’re using the form, please make sure you include it with your cheque so we are able to claim the Gift Aid.
If you manage to raise £100 (Silver-level sponsorship) you will enable us to provide six people with food for three days. In return, you’ll get a silver Colour Run t-shirt along with your runner’s medal and sunglasses.
If you can raise £1,000 (Gold-level sponsorship) you will enable us to provide sixty people with food for three days. As well as your runner’s medal and sunglasses you’ll get a gold t-shirt-personalised with your name. (You’ll need to verify your total with us in advance of the event to allow for printing time.)
Terms and conditions
All money for silver and gold sponsorship packages must be shown on VirginMoneyGiving or paid in advance so that we can order the appropriate registration pack. This is especially important if you achieve Gold-level sponsorship because of t-shirt printing times.
