Colour run

ST HELENS Colour Run is returning to Victoria Park later this month.
A partnership event between St Helens Borough Council’s Active Lives and sports development team and Willowbrook Hospice, with sponsorship from Alliance Connectivity, the family-friendly activity challenges participants to run, skip or walk around a 4k route of the park while getting covered in safe, biodegradable coloured powder.
Willowbrook Hospice head of fundraising, Suzanne Davies, said: “We are delighted to be partnering with St Helens Borough Council again to bring this fun event to Victoria Park. 
“It costs £5.2m per year to run all our patient services and as we only receive £1.5m from NHS funding, our fundraising events are essential for us to continue to give the very best care to our patients.”
St Helens Colour run will take place on Saturday, June 29 with participants asked to arrive at noon for a 12.30pm start.
Entry is £10 for adults, £5 for children and young people up to the age of 16, or £20 for a family of four.
