With two events to choose from, The Colourthon is Southend's ultimate challenge.
The Moonlight Colourthon is a half marathon walk set against the backdrop of Southend by night. Walkers will leave Chalkwell Park at 6pm wearing an array of bright and colourful clothing, and will walk a 13+ mile course around the Southend, Westcliff, Leigh and Chalkwell areas.
The Twilight Colourthon was launched in 2012 for those who feel the Moonlight half marathon is just a step too far. It's a 10k walk (6.1 miles) which starts at exactly the same time as the Moonlight walk leaving Chalkwell Park at 6pm with much of the walk following the same route around Southend, Westcliff and Chalkwell.
For both events, the fun kicks off at 6pm (just as the sun is setting) on Saturday 1st July 2017, and those walking are encouraged to dress as brightly as their imaginations will allow!
Entry is £20 and includes an exclusive brightly coloured 'Colourthon' t-shirt and finishing medal. No minimum sponsorship is required.
