FAQs about our COLOURFUL event

How do we get  a new sponsorship form please?

No worries, just scroll down to the bottom of this page for the link.


Where should I park?

Please find on the road parking or travel sustainably by walking if possible. Please avoid parking dangerously on North road or in the bus stop.


How old do the children have to be to take part?

Children over the age of 3 can take part as long as parents or carers have signed the waiver. Three and four year olds need to be accompanied by an adult.


When will I receive the waiver?

Once you have registered and paid the entry fee to secure your place on School Gateway, we will send a waiver to you to sign. All participants must read, understand and sign themselves (if over 18) and on behalf of a child (if under 18) they are parent to or carer for, to take part.


How long is the course?

Key stage 1 and Early years children will be asked to complete 7 laps of the school field (1 mile!) and Key stage 2 children will be challenged to 10 laps of the school field.

Everyone is encouraged to complete the course, but it’s the taking part that’s the most important and children will still get celebrated if they don’t manage to complete the whole course.


How much should I try and raise in sponsorship?

If everyone could raise as much as possible it will really help in our efforts – big or small, every contribution helps.


How do I pay the sponsorship money?

You can pay by putting cash in an envelope with your child’s name on it and hand into the office. Or you can pay via the goodhub fundraising page here with your child’s name as a reference – this way we can benefit from gift aid, just click here


What is the powder made of?

For information on the content of the powdered paint please scroll down to the bottom of the page where you will find an information sheet.


What kind of obstacles will there be on the course?

A mixture of easy obstacles for all participants to manage.


Can my child still take part if they don’t want to get covered in paint?

We will have an area that children can run alongside the course if they don’t want to get a significant amount of paint thrown on them, however we won’t be able to manage the risk that some paint will go on them.


What should we wear?

Active wear that you don’t mind getting messy and trainers. While the powder is non-toxic and should not cause problems to those with allergies or cause irritation to the eyes, as a precaution we would suggest you bring goggles or sunglasses to protect their eyes. As part of your registration you will be given a white t-shirt which we would recommend wearing for the best results! Clothes should be soaked and treated with a stain remover before washing after the event for best results. 


What do we need to bring on the day?

We would recommend you bring a towel, a change of clothes, a bottle of water and goggles or sunglasses.


Will you have first aid on site?

We will have the St Johns Ambulance on site during the event as a precaution.


I need some additional information, who do I ask?

Please drop your Class Rep any other questions and they will share with the committee. Alternatively, feel free to approach us in the playground, we're really friendly!


Do adults have to run?

We'd love you to join in the run with your little ones to raise as much money as possible. However, if you only want to spectate, you will need a spectator ticket which is priced at £5 to ensure we can cover the cost of the event. This ticket option will be on School Gateway Monday 22nd April.
