Children's Hospice South West is set to brighten up Clifton Downs with an explosion of colour for the UK's first ever Rainbow Run.

The charity run with fun is on Sunday, May 19, and people can sign up now.

The CHSW Rainbow Run will be the first 5K in the UK where participants start in a pristine white T-shirt and end it covered in the colours of the rainbow and a huge smile on their face!  

Participants will pass through five rainbow stations on the course where they will be showered with different coloured powder paints.  

The powder paints are 100 per cent natural and safe.

CHSW head of fundraising Karen Edgington said: "The event is all about having fun.  

"It's not about speed or fitness; it's about celebration, getting involved in a global phenomenon and raising a smile for Charlton Farm at Wraxall."

Similar 'paint race' events have taken the US and Australia by storm, attracting sell-out crowds of up to 30,000 participants.  

Kate added: "The Rainbow Run is the perfect way to celebrate and support the fantastic work that CHSW does raising a smile for life-limited children.  

"CHSW's Charlton Farm hospice is a magical place, full of fun and laughter where precious memories are made - not what many might imagine a hospice to be.  

"The Rainbow Run is all about having fun and trying something different. 

"As Bristol is renowned for being a vibrant city we felt it was the perfect place to introduce this memorable event.  

"If you want to be one of the first in the UK to experience this crazy colour explosion then sign up today!"

The Rainbow Run is being kindly sponsored by health insurance company, Simply Health and the UK's largest independent decorators' merchant Brewers

Entry is just £10. To take part in the UK's most colourful fun run click HERE or call 01275 866600.

CHSW was set up by chief executive Eddie Farwell and his late wife Jill who had two life-limited children.

It is the only organisation in the south west providing hospice care to the children and support for their families.
