4k Charity Rainbow Paint Run

Whitby District Lions New Event paint-run     Whitby District Lion’s held their first ever Rainbow Paint Run on Sunday 4th September along Whitby Beach. It was the first event of its kind to be held in Whitby which involves participants running, jogging or walking a four kilometer route from the west pier along the beach to the end of sea wall and turning back again. The fun and exciting difference being that club members and volunteers covered the participants in a kaleidoscope of powder paint at different stations along the route. There was an amazing turnout of 130 people taking part with many children and adults enjoying the last day of the summer holidays. Everyone had thoroughly fun and exciting time, this was evident after the run with all the children asking can we do it next year!   Given it’s the first time Whitby Lions have organised a paint run the event was very successful with over a £1,000.00 raised. However due to the quantities of paint required, t-shirts and sunglasses that each participant received we realized that our first event will manage to break even. The good news is that next year’s paint run will make considerably more money, which will support many local charities.   Whitby Lions would also like to say a huge thank you to the local business who helped to support the event. Whitby Pet Shop who kindly registered all our runners, TNT Fitness who did a brilliant warm up before the run, Whitby COOP and Tate & Smith of Malton who supplied the bottled water and Yorkshire Coast Radio who helped to promote the event.   Whitby Lions look forward to the growing the popularity of next year’s Rainbow Paint Run, which will be a fantastic opportunity for families, children and adults to have some amazing fun and at the same time raise lots of money for the many brilliant local charities who do such amazing work.
