On Sunday 25th June 2017 will see Ballywaltrim Park (Bray) transformed into a kaleidoscope of colour as it hosts Bray’s first ever colour themed fun run – The Colour Rush. In aid of raising funds to find a permanent home for Bray’s local football club, Ardmore Rovers, The Colour Rush promises to be a great family fun day out. Hundreds of runners, both young and the young at heart, will converge to take part in this multi-coloured spectacle.
At 12 noon (sharp), this 5k family fun run will kick off. Whether walking, running, crawling or jumping over The Colour Rush course, those taking part are guaranteed to get saturated in multi-colours as the Ardmore ‘Rainbow Army’ will be on hand to make sure the white T-shirt you arrived in is a veritable colour riot when you leave!
To Register for this fun-filled event go to www.thecolourrush.ie. Tickets cost €25 per adult (16+), €20 per child (5-15) or €70 for a special family ticket (2 adults + 2 children OR 1 adult + 3 children). Included in the pack is a dazzling white Tee Shirt, a bottle of water and some powder paint. Before the event, there will be a warm up with the staff of Shoreline Leisure Bray and a DJ will help get the party started!
All proceeds from this initiative will go to Ardmore Rovers FC. The club is run by a dedicated committee of volunteers and has over 100 volunteers between managers, coaches and an executive committee. Despite being the town’s largest football club, Ardmore Rovers has no permanent grounds. The Ardmore 2020 campaign aims to change that and all proceeds from ‘The Colour Rush’ will go towards the club’s biggest and most ambitious goal yet; to find a home for Ardmore Rovers FC.
Ardmore Rovers FC is partnering with Bray District Council, Shoreline Leisure Bray, Bray Chamber of Commerce and The Martello to raise funds for its Ardmore 2020 campaign, which aims to secure a permanent home for the club as it heads towards its 40th birthday. From humble beginnings to over 600 children as members of the club, Ardmore Rovers has provided football training to thousands of Bray Children over the years. Indeed, its most famous son is Ireland’s current Irish goalkeeper Darren Randolph, who spent his entire schoolboy life playing in the Bray club. Darren now ply’s his trade with West Ham United in the English Premiership.
Run in to some fun on Sunday 25th June! To register or find out more about The Colour Rush head to www.thecolourrush.ie.
