Calderglen family run of colour
Calderglen Country Park, East Kilbride – Date now changed to Sunday 11 June 2023
Take a unique, colourful walk, jog or run, through Calderglen Country Park for SLLC’s second colour event! Have a look at last year's fun in Colour Run June 22 | Flickr.
Along the 2k route, you will pass through different coloured zones and fun obstacles before returning to a mass colour party on the main lawn. You can go round the route once or twice; the choice is yours!
The aim is to get as colourful as you possibly can!
The event is not designed to be competitive and there are no winning prizes or race times being taken. It is a family fun run with a difference to be enjoyed by all ages. Please note though, the course is not suitable for prams or buggies so we ask that the little ones can manage to get round the course themselves.
Everyone will begin from the main lawn at the same time unless numbers of participants dictates, we need to introduce waves at 10 minute intervals. This will be confirmed in the participants brief sent out prior to the event.
Entry fees (2022 prices frozen!!)
Juniors (under 16) £7.50
Family Ticket (2 adults 2 children) £40.00
Registration opens Monday 17 April 2023 at 09:00 and closes Thursday 8 June at 23:59.

On the day
Registration will be in the gazebos on the main lawn from 8:30am.
The 2k route will start on the main lawn and, weather and ground conditions permitting, will cover a combination of both grass sections and trail paths near to the children’s playpark, down to Horseshoe Falls along the trail to Torrance Linn and back to finish on the main lawn. A route map and event information will be sent to all registered participants prior to the event.
All participants will receive a white t-shirt, bag of colour powder for the start and a finisher’s medal. Everyone will also receive a bottle of water and snack at the finish line.
Parking is available in the main car park of Calderglen Country Park.
Toilets and changing facilities
Toilets are available adjacent to the playpark, within the visitor centre (zoo entrance), and within the Courtyard Café.
What to bring
The coloured powder used is safe and certified and will wash off clothes and hair etc with little fuss. You may however wish to bring a pair of glasses or goggles to wear. Other than that, suitable clothing and footwear is advised depending on weather and ground conditions.
There are no locker storage facilities however bags can be left in the gazebo storage area on the main lawn.
There will be an official race photographer at the event. These pictures will be available on the event website, SLLC Facebook and twitter pages.
