The event

The Color Run is a five-kilometre, un-timed race in which thousands of participants are doused from head to toe in different colours at each kilometre. The fun continues at the finish line with a gigantic “Color Festival,” using more coloured powder to create happiness and lasting memories, not to mention millions of vivid colour combinations.


By taking part on behalf of Link Ethiopia, you will help us to continue our work in changing lives through education. With the money you raise you will help to empower teachers, improve schools and ensure that all children can get a good education.

We will also support you with any help or resources you might need, to get you on the right foot with fundraising. Please fill out the contact form on this page if you have any questions.


How much does it cost to take part?

Entry into the Color Run costs £29.99 which includes postage costs. You can also take advantage of slightly cheaper tickets by signing up as a group of four.

What support will I receive?

If you sign up to run the Color Run for Link Ethiopia then you will receive a free fundraising pack and fundraising support, and a place in our Hall of Fame!

How much should I fundraise?

We will be delighted to have you raise any amount for Link Ethiopia; every penny you raise for us will fund our projects in Ethiopia. It can be useful to set goals though, and for this one we would suggest a target of £100.
