Six Colour Run Fundraising Ideas

07/07/2022EventsColour Event

If you’ve planned a colour run this year, there are also many ways you can organise a colour run as a fundraising event for a charity. With summer now upon us, there’s no better time to organise an event for a good cause. Take a look below at our ideas for a colour run fundraising event and get involved in your own!

Why should I organise a fundraising colour run?

Colour runs are the perfect way to fundraise, as they are fun, exciting and a little bit silly! Colour runs are organised all over the world as an ideal way to have fun and exercise, whilst getting covered in multi-coloured powder. What’s more, it’s all for a good cause! There are many different ways you can fundraise through a colour run and we’ll detail them here. Read on to find out more.

What fundraising can I do for a colour run?

There are many different avenues you can go down when it comes to fundraising. For a colour run, you’ll want to ensure that there are as many fundraising opportunities as possible, especially if you decide to support multiple charities. Take a look at the options below:

  • Tickets - tickets for the event can go towards your fundraising savings. Whether that’s for the competitors themselves or those who are watching on the sidelines, everyone can get involved in raising money for charity.
  • Colour powder - you can’t have a colour run, without the colour! Bought in pouches, the powder is ideal for both those who are competing and those who are on the sidelines. Everyone can join in and with multiple colours to choose from, there’s no way you won’t walk away without your clothes covered! If you would like more information on the safety of the colour powder, read our colour powder safety and cleaning instructions.
  • T-shirts - those taking part in the colour run are best wearing white T-shirts so that they get the full colour experience! You can offer white T-shirts to your runners and even put your logo on them, if it’s a company event. You can even offer them on the day, so that if anyone decides to join at the last minute, they can!
  • Food and drink - your runners are going to need food and drinks on the day to keep them in fit shape to compete! Offering a range of foods and drinks for both competitors and guests in the perfect way to fundraise. 
  • Sponsorship - a superb way to fundraise is for your runners to ask for sponsors before or during the event. If they can get a number of people to sponsor them, you’ll have plenty of funds for the charity. You can then have a collection point at the end of the day where they can drop their sponsors off.
  • Merchandise - sweatbands, bandanas and sunglasses are the perfect addition to your charity event! Extra merchandise is ideal for raising more money for charity, especially if you’re offering sunglasses and visors for a hot day.
