The Whitby Rainbow Colour Run is back for 2022! The Whitby District Lions cannot wait to welcome you back. Here is all you need to know about the upcoming Whitby Rainbow Colour Run.

This year’s run is the event’s 4th edition, and it will take place on Sunday, 17th July 2022, at 1 PM. This is a fun, colourful and exciting family-friendly event your entire family can all get involved in.

This non-competitive event will take place along Whitby’s West Cliff beach, and you can be of any age to take part. In addition, all participants can choose to either run or walk the course while you face a shower of powdered paint! So let’s turn the beach rainbow and fill the town with joy and laughter.

Whitby Colour Run

There will be two courses available to complete on the day. There is a 5k course for adults which will start at the West Pier and run along the beach to the Dunsley ravine and back. There is also a 3k course if children accompany you under 16 years old. This begins from the West Pier and then takes you along the beach to the end of the sea wall and back.

This event is held each year to support local charities and good causes. All of which Whitby District Lions continue to help throughout the year.

We are so excited to see you there!
