Sign up now for the inaugural Ilkley Colour Rush

Registration for the Ilkley Grammar School PTA Ilkley Colour Rush on Sunday 26 June is now open.

Participants will be able to run, jog, walk, hop, skip or jump around a lapped 5k course on the IGS Ben Rhydding playing fields whilst being covered in colourful power paint.

There will be five 30 minutes races, the first at 10.30am for 5-7 year olds, then all races afterwards are for ages 7 through to 77!

Tickets cost £12.50 per person, to include a free T-shirt and drawstring bag if booked by 30 May.

A spokesperson for the PTA said: “This is a new venture for us and we’d love for it to be a real success to raise vital funds for the PTA, the projects this year are mental health training funding and the creative arts. A huge amount of time and effort has gone into planning this event by a very small team of parents and school staff and we’d love this to be a sell-out event.

“There is still time to grab your tickets, please do support what is set to be a fun packed family summer event.“

Ilkley’s Rombalds Radio will be hosting, there will be a Zumba warm up and paint party with local fitness instructor, Emma Draper, United Education have agreed to bring along free Bubble Football and refreshments will also be available.

The spokesperson added: “We also need volunteers to help with the setup, at the event and to clear up. If you can offer your time on 25 or 26 June, please contact us at
