Sunday 14th May was Heart of Kent Hospice’s third Rainbow run event. Held once again in the lovely surroundings of Mote Park, the event attracted over 500 participants. It was a bit of a surprise for the other Park users that decided to go for a walk around the lake that day! They were lucky not to get covered in paint and gunge! Gunge was a new ingredient added to the mix this year at the first station. Personally I prefer the look of the paint for the photos but I don’t actually do the 5km run / trot / jog / walk that the participants complete so who am I to complain.
It’s nice to see the contrast from the start, where participants are generally wearing white t-shirts, to the finish where they are covered in a variety of colours, gunge and this year also foam. Foam was another new addition to the finish line this year. It went down very well with the younger runners!
I saw lots of broad smiles and it looked like everyone that took part had a fantastic time raising valuable money for the Heart of Kent Hospice. It’s an impossible job to try and keep track of who I have and who I haven’t managed to get photos of when there are so many participants. As I cycle around the route, I try not to get the same groups of people all the time but inevitably I probably have multiple photos of some and no photos of others.
Sorry if I missed you. Come back next year and we’ll all try again!
