Get ready to be doused in vibrant colours and experience pure joy at the 3rd annual First Days Colour Run. The fun happens in Prospect Park in Reading on 12 May.

More than just a run, this event is a celebration of community and inclusivity:

  • Four colour stations: Prepare to be showered in vibrant hues at each colour station, transforming you into a walking masterpiece.
  • Family-friendly fun: Perfect for participants of all ages, from little ones to grandparents, this event guarantees smiles and laughter for everyone.
  • Fundraising for a worthy cause: All proceeds directly support First Days Children's Charity, ensuring they can continue providing essential items and support to disadvantaged children in the local community.


Beyond the colourful spectacle, the event offers:

  • White t-shirt included: Express yourself with colour on the provided t-shirt, guaranteed to become a treasured memento.
  • Music and entertainment: Keep the energy high with upbeat music from Saxcelerate and lively entertainment throughout the course.
  • Refreshments and treats: Refuel and celebrate with delicious food and drinks available for purchase from Phantom Brewery and Unholy Donuts.

First Days Children’s Charity give choice, restore dignity and empower families who are living with a low income or are experiencing financial hardship. They offer emotional, practical and specialist support via our Family Support Team. They also help families access the support they need from other organisations, (such as Wokingham Foodbank, and Berkshire Women’s Aid) and distribute essential items, such as beds, prams and school uniform, donated to them by the public. The immediate support they give to families via the distribution of essential items is the first building block in longer term support to help families in other areas of their lives.
