Calderglen family run of colour

Calderglen family run of colour

Calderglen Country Park, East Kilbride – Sunday 12 June 2022

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 events

The event is not designed to be competitive and there are no winning prizes or race times being taken. It is a family run with a difference to be enjoyed by all ages. Please note, the course is not suitable for prams or buggies so we ask that all the little ones can manage the route by themselves.

Groups will set off in waves every 10 minutes from 10:00am so you can choose your start time when booking.

Entry fees

Adults £15.00

Juniors (under 16) £7.50

Family (2 adults and 2 children) £40.00

Group discounts – for groups of 10 children, 2 adults go free. Email us at to arrange.
