They had joy, they had fun, they got coloured in the sun!

More than 400 entrants stepped up for the first ever Watford Colour Run in Aldenham Park raising  an incredible £10k for Peace Hospice Care.

Dashing around the 5k trail in dazzling sunglasses, the fun loving runners were gently showered in a multitude of magnificent shades turning the park into a kaleidoscope of colour.

Taking part in the event were 'Team Starlight', the wonderful Rehab team from the Starlight Centre. Team members included  a Peace Hospice Care physiotherapist, occupational therapist, Starlight coordinator,  a volunteer and their children. They were cheered on by friends, family members and supportive patients.

Peace Hospice Care Events & Fundraising Manager, Pete Watson was delighted by the response to Watford's first ever Colour Run event.

'We had a great turn out of support and raised £10K for the Hospice.  Entrants really seemed to have a good time, and the feel good factor is at the core of all our events.  

'Our Starlight Walk on July 11 is the next big fundraiser for the Hospice and we are urging women to take part, step out, enjoy themselves and help raise the £4.2 million we need every year to continue our services.'
