About this event

Leeds Student Colour Run is back….Get colourful, run (walk, jog, skip or hop) 5K, party, test yourself, listen to great music, feel awesome, and do it in a unique campus setting. It’s the perfect way to get fit, get messy, feel awesome, and experience the awesome atmosphere and energy of a unique event.

What is the event?

Student Colour Run Leeds is a 5K un-timed run, starting and finishing outside Leeds University Union. Before the run you will get covered in colour whilst enjoying the big stage madness with great music and a mass warm-up. As if that wasn’t enough, this year we’ve got brand *new* amplified music at colour throwing stations along the route. Celebrate your achievement and continue the party with even more colour, music and dancing at the finish line with plenty of photo opportunities.

The rules are simple:
1) Wear your exclusive white Student Colour Run T-shirt (you get this with your race pack)
2) Finish the event plastered in colour
3) Most importantly, have an amazing time!

This event is perfect for any fitness level. You can get fit, show off your speed or even just walk it. We welcome every one of all abilities so whether you’re looking to challenge yourself themselves to your first 5K run, to seasoned runners, to folks who want to dance the race along with their friends, everyone is welcome.

What’s included with your ticket?

Your ticket is exchanged for a race pack before the run which includes:
-Entry to the run
-Exclusive Student Colour Run t-shirt to run in and keep
-Exclusive pull string bag to store your belongings during the run and keep afterwards
-100g bag of colour powder
-Race number

Society tickets

To give back to all our clubs and societies as much as possible, this year we've launched society pricing for the annual Student Colour Run! Following our Fruity society tickets system, committees will be able to reserve society tickets through the form at https://goo.gl/forms/B0EEkWauesWN2ESi1. Each ticket purchased gets you get a Student Colour Run bag, T-shirt, race number AND two packets of colour instead of one. These will be sold at the reduced price of £14.50 per ticket. Every ten society tickets sold will then allow 1 committee guest list. The Events team will be in touch about collection and return of tickets and how you can get your Student Colour Run T-shirts. This will be a fun way to bring your society members together and with a dedicated photographer on site- there will be plenty of colourful photo opportunities! Get in touch with us on events@luu.leeds.ac.uk if you have any questions.
