All the colours of the rainbow at Leyland Park

18 September 2015

Wigan’s second 5K Colour Run on Sunday 13th September saw hundreds of people get covered in colourful powder paint.

Participants ran around a 5K track, at Leyland Park in Hindley, and got pelted every 1K with a different colour of powder paint before getting covered in a final blast of colour as they crossed the finish line.

The event raised funds for both Wigan and Leigh Hospice and the Wigan Warriors Community Foundation.

Christine Edwardson, Community Fundraiser for the Hospice, said: "The Colour Run was a fantastic success with so many turning out to support us and enjoy a very colourful afternoon. We were even lucky with the weather!

"Thank you to everyone who came along to support the event and raised money for both the Hospice and the Wigan Warriors Community Foundation."All the colours of the rainbow at Leyland Park
