Ilkley Colour Rush

The Parent Teacher Association (‘PTA’) of Ilkley Grammar School has planned Ilkley’s first ever Colour Rush for 26th June 2022 this year as a major fundraising event.
Participants in the inaugural Ilkley Colour Rush will be able to run, jog, walk, hop, skip or jump around a lapped course whilst being covered in colourful paint (corn starch powder)! By the time they finish the course, they will look like a rainbow! It’s shaping up to be a fantastic family friendly event for adults, work colleagues, friends, young adults and children and tickets are available now until the end of May to guarantee a free t-shirt!


Buy tickets now on or #ilkleycolourrush on Instagram.

You can also use the QR code on the banners at the Ben Rhydding Sports ground or at Ilkley Grammar School entrance gates where there are banners installed promoting the event.


Ticket holders will get a FREE “Just Add Colour” t-shirt and FREE Drawstring bag.


There are 5 races to choose from and a Zumba warm-up and Paint party before each race, there will be extra sachets of paint to buy to make sure you are covered in colour and we will be throwing plenty all over you on the race route itself!

“In partnership with Addingham Scouts we have yummy hot food and drink to purchase to keep you going and ice creams on sale. We’ve also got free bubble football provided by United Education to enjoy as well.”

“This year, the PTA is looking to spend the money raised on the further enhancement of the mental health and wellbeing support provided to students who have faced so many challenges during the pandemic. We are hoping to purchase equipment to support the work of the creative arts department at school (art, music, photography and drama) – an area which struggles to attract funding nationally, but which IGS is committed to supporting and developing further over the coming years through ever-more ambitious and exciting creative projects.”
