Upcoming Runs we’re excited for!

Category : Blog , cardiff , colour , Llanelli , mumbles , run

With less than 3 weeks until Llanelli’s 2nd Colour Splash, we wanted to reflect on some of Light Up Events run’s we are most excited for this year.

Colour Splash

Of course,  Colour Splash is one of out most popular run’s of the year. With more contestants this year than ever, there is sure to be twice as much colour and chaos at our venue Stradey Castle! https://www.stradeycastle.com/

This year we have incorporated a few more obstacles to manoeuvre, alongside different challenges. All this helps to add to the overall experience of Colour Splash as an event that offers something different than just your atypical 5K. 

Colour Splash raises money from ticket sales for the charity Llanelli Mind.

Who are Llanelli Mind?

Llanelli Mind is a local mental health organisation which has been providing vital support services and information to people across Carmarthenshire.

They offer a range of excellent drop-in and befriending support services for people with mental health problems. They also:

  • campaign for the introduction of new services and improvements to existing ones;
  • challenge stigma and discrimination;
  • raise awareness;
  • and promote understanding.

Join us at Stradey Castle on the 11th August for a fun-filled day of fitness! https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/llanelli-colour-splash-tickets-38951895167

Cardiff Pizza & Beer Run

On the 25th of August (Bank Holiday Weekend), we are once again offering something completely niche to the fitness game in Wales’ Capital City!

Have you ever raced for Pizza & Beer before? We’ve all wished at some point that someone was dangling something delicious in front of us when we’re exercising. Sometimes we all need that donkey-carrot motivation!

Light up Events are all about wanting to provide the ultimate running experience. Why has it got to be so serious? This is NOT a timed run around a looped route. NO, you won’t have your strava. NO, there will be no chip timing.

This is the perfect challenge and event for companies wishing to facilitate a corporate team building day or even if your office staff fancy a giggle. With team-building exercises incorporated along the route such as archery, orienteering & treasure finding, this race once again offers something different than just your atypical 5K.   Fitness is important on any level and Light Up Events encourage you to get as many of your friends, family & colleagues involved.

Light Up for Velindre

https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/light-up-cardiff-for-velindre-round-2-tickets-44325073488

On October 19th in Cardiff, we are lighting up green again for Velindre Cancer Centre.

Last year we raised an amazing £6,515 for Velindre and this year we hope to do even better!

Who are Velindre?

Velindre is Wales’ Premier Cancer Centre, providing specialist cancer care, treatment and support to over 1.5 million people in Wales. Each year we see over 5,000 new referrals and around 50,000 new outpatient appointments.

Money raised from fundraisers is used to ensure the best possible support is offered to every patient, their families, and carers dealing with cancer. It allows us to fund specialist nurses who are fundamental to a patient’s experience, implement projects to improve the physical environment for a patient, such as our gardens, the Family & Children’s Room and so much more.

It enables us to offer better support through complex treatment pathways, earlier access to cutting-edge treatments, research into new treatments, purchase specialist equipment and ensure our staff have access to the most up to date training and techniques available.

This is one of our most important events of the year as it helps to raise money for a cause so close to Light Up Events hearts. 

 

Sound exciting?

Get involved with one or more of our races and see what Light Up Events are all about!
