Lisburn & Castlereagh City Council is excited to host the craziest and most colourful 5K run, ‘The Color Run’, on Saturday 11th May, 11am at Wallace Park, Lisburn.

Dubbed the ‘Happiest 5K on the planet’, the Council is encouraging family and friends to register now and prepare to be doused in a rainbow of vibrant colour.

Speaking at the launch, the Mayor of Lisburn & Castlereagh City Council, Councillor Uel Mackin said, “I am delighted to launch the popular Color Run at Wallace Park for the third consecutive year. The event attracts hundreds of participants each year and is a fantastic opportunity to bring the community together for a morning of fun with family and friends. The route is suitable for all levels of fitness so don’t worry if running isn’t for you as we have a choice of 1K, 3K or 5K routes so you can elect to walk, jog or dance your way around Wallace Park! There is even a fun Zumba session to warm up your muscles before the event which is always great fun for all age groups.

“I would encourage everyone to take the plunge and sign up today and create colourful memories with friends and family while raising vital funds for my chosen Mayoral Charity, Cancer Fund for Children.”

The entry fee is £10.00 per adult and £5 for children under 12, which includes sunglasses. Participants should wear white or light coloured clothing to make the most of the event. All colours are made of natural powders. Children must be accompanied by an adult.

The deadline for registration is Friday 10th May, 5pm. To register, please visit or phone the LeisurePlex main reception on 028 9267 2121. For further information on the event, please contact Robert Geary, Sports Events Coordinator on 028 9250 9566.
