The Teesside Hospice Colour Run is back for 2017.

Runners of all ages and abilities will covered from head to toe in environmentally friendly powder paint, with a different colour for each station.

New for this year, the Hospice has introduced "bands on the run", to help keep runners motivated around the course. Before the event, crowds will be entertained and warmed up by Toni McGlone who runs Clubbercise Teesside. There will also be a variety of colourful accessories on sale at the event.

1,500 runners took part in last year’s Colour Run, which raised over £70,000 to support specialist palliative care at Teesside Hospice.

The Colour Run is sponsored by popular, local shoe retailer Charles Clinkard and is also supported by Teesside University, Hill Care: Care Home and Darlington Building Society, meaning that every penny raised will go directly towards providing care.


Stewart Park

Stewart Park covers about 120 acres and consists both of mature woodland and arboretum on the southern side, with open parkland on the northern side. Two sets of lakes provide habitat for our water fowl.

A big favourite with all the family is the extensive pets corner with many types of domesticated animals, fallow deer, highland cattle, llamas and goats.

It is most famous as the birthplace of Captain Cook. The site of his cottage is marked by a granite vase in the nearby Captain Cook Birthplace Museum. Look out for the new Captain Cook Play area!

It also hosts a number of large events, including the Cleveland Show.

The park is available free of charge to charitable organisations for fund raising events such as sponsored walks and fun runs.
