LU Campus Colour Dash for CancerCare

Working in close collaboration with Sport Lancaster and Just Play, Lancaster University Running Club are excited to bring you the Campus Colour Dash for CancerCare!


This event will be a 3km loop round Lancaster University campus, during which you will get covered in paint by our wonderful paint stewards. Everyone is welcome to take part, regardless of whether you are running, jogging or walking!


You will receive a white T-Shirt (for the paint), a medal and sunglasses for taking part and all proceeds from the event will go to our chosen charity, CancerCare.


CancerCare are an incredible charity dedicated to helping  families affected by cancer and other life limiting conditions living in North Lancashire, South Lakeland and the Barrow and Furness area. They will also be there on the day helping out with the paint throwing, accepting donations and talking to you about the amazing work they do.
