Calderglen Country Park, East Kilbride – Sunday 28 July 2024

Take a unique, colourful walk, jog or run, through Calderglen Country Park for SLLC’s third colour event!

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 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!!)

Adults £16.00

Juniors (under 16) £8.00

Family Ticket (2 adults/2 children) £40.00
