Rainbow Colour Run

Whitby District Lions is proud to announce that ‘Whitby Rainbow Colour Run’ is back for its second year on Sunday 17th June (Father’s Day), with even more fun for the family! Our non-competitive event along Whitby’s West Cliff beach will see participants of all ages run or walk the course, whilst facing an exciting, colourful shower of powdered paint. Help us turn the beach into a glowing rainbow of fun and laughter with both family members and friends. Or why not simply use this event as an excuse to give your Dad a Father’s Day to remember? The event is to be held in support of local charities and good causes, all of which Whitby District Lions continue to support throughout the year.  On the day there will be 2 courses available to complete, either a 5k course for adults (from the West Pier along the beach to the Dunsley ravine and back) or a 3k course for those who are accompanied by children under 16 years (from the West Pier along the beach to the end of the sea wall and back).  We look forward to seeing you there and celebrating your desire to get fit, test yourself, feel awesome and celebrate your achievement!

Our first run was very successful with 130 people conquering the fun run whilst raising money for fantastic local Whitby charities.


Each year Whitby Lion’s raise thousands of pounds for local Whitby charities and good causes. The club is approached throughout the year from a verity of charities such as; WISH Foundation, Friends of Pannett Park, Whitby Wildlife Sanctuary, Whitby District Scouts and Guides, Whitby RNLI and St Catherine’s Hospice.


100% of all the money raised through the fun run and other events is donated directly to such charities, meaning our club resources are a vital funding pot that can be easily accessed. The club’s running costs are covered by our members who pay a membership fee each year.
