The first, and brand new for 2016, is the Paint Run which is open to all ages with the challenge being to run 5 pre-determined 1km laps of Chalkwell Park and sees the runners showered in a burst of coloured powder paint on completion of each lap.
The second is the Twilight Colourthon, a 10k walk around the picturesque streets of Southend-on-Sea and Thames Estuary and the third being the Moonlight Colourthon, a half marathon walk around Southend, Westcliff, Chalkwell and Leigh through the evening and into the early hours of the following morning.
