Caudwell Children’s Colour Runner – 2020 update
Like you, we were very much looking forward to this event on Saturday 22nd August 2020, however, with the unprecedented times we are in, and the added challenges of social distancing and the lockdown it wouldn’t be appropriate for us to continue with this event at this time.

As you know, we have been working hard to bring the Colour Runner to you virtually during the lockdown so that during your daily exercise, you could add an extra bit of colour and fun to you day, and we would love for you to continue to take part this way.

What happens now?
As you can imagine, cancelled events are having a huge impact on the fundraising here at Caudwell Children, so we hope you will be happy to move your event entry to our 2021 Colour Runner on Saturday 8th May 2021. You don’t need to do anything – you will be posted your entry pack ahead of the May event next year.

We are still busy supporting families and your fundraising is now more important than ever, so please email us at for more information on how you can still take part in our Virtual Colour Runner.

Caudwell Children’s Colour Runner is back!
We are now taking registrations for you to join our #Team20 at our 2020 Colour runner on Saturday 8th May 2021 at Central Forest Park in Stoke-on-Trent. Please note, we have moved our original date of Saturday 4th April 2020. Click here for more information.

With both 5km and 2km routes available this fun run really is for everyone! You will be blasted in a rainbow of powdered paints as you take on the challenge. With the 2K route being fully accessible for everyone, the whole family can come along and get stuck in.

This year Caudwell Children turns 20! We are celebrating 20 years of changing children’s lives – and we want you to join us!
