PIPS Hope & Support are delivering the ‘Newry Colour Run’ on Sunday 3rd July from 11:00am at Greenbank Industrial Estate, starting from the Shamrocks GFC.

The Color Run is a five-kilometer, un-timed event in which “Color Runners,” are doused from head to toe in different colors. The Color Run caters to everyone, at the end of the event, participants join a “Finish Festival” with music, dancing, and massive color throws. Runners are encouraged to wear white t-shirts and sunglasses.

Padraig Harte, fundraising coordinator said “We are delighted to be hosting the colour run on Sunday 3rd July to raise funds and awareness for suicide prevention and mental health. A full morning of fun is arranged for the whole family and community. Each participant on completion will receive a medal for their efforts. The 5K run will commence at 11:00am, participants are welcome to run/walk as much or as little as they can.

“Local business Loft27 will also be available providing teas/coffees and traybakes for anyone who wants to avail. We take this opportunity to thank Shamrocks GAA for their support with the venue, ABP for use of their car park, Surefreight for the use of their trailer, PureGym for providing the warmup at the beginning and to the volunteers for their time and assistance in ensuring that the colour run will be a success.”
