About this event


What is the 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.

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!

Where do I get my race pack from?

Make sure to select your T-shirt size when purchasing your ticket. Bring your ticket to Market Square in Leeds University Union on Thursday 21 April or Friday 01 May between 11am and 4pm. There will be two stalls located in stall 2 and 3 which are the big wooden tables to the left of Bayfields Opticians. Here you'll be able to get your E-ticket scanned (this will be on your email) and you can pick up your race pack which includes: Your T-shirt, your draw string bag, your race number and of course your colour powder! 

If you can’t make it, or if you buy your ticket after this day, please email us for alternative arrangement:
