Welcome to The Asparagus Run
It’s time to get green ! A fantastic 5km fun run for all the family. Celebrate the 2017 British Asparagus Festival in style with an amazing family colour run. Asparagus green paint bombs will be raining down on you as you manoeuvre the multi-terrain family friendly run. Held at The Valley Evesham, runners of all ages are welcome to join in, on the scenic route around the tracks and trails of Evesham Country Park.
The run raises vital funds for St Richard’s Hospice, with £1 from EVERY entry fee going to the charity to help them in their vital work. You can also increase your donation too when booking. You may wish to raise money for your own charity yourself too
Meet the man himself, AsparaGUS who will be first in line to offer you a splurge of the green stuff! The British Asparagus Festival runs from the 23rd April - 21st June 2017, with events and tours being run by Wychavon Tourism.
There'll be music and an event commentator to create a great atmosphere, along with an official event photographer, plus there's loads to do at The Valley when you've finished your run, including shopping, eating and play areas.
A few Q&As...
Is the paint safe ?
Yes, we use safe, non-toxic paint powder, which easily washes off clothes, hair and skin. We will also give you a funky pair of green sunglasses to wear!
Is the event for charity?
The run raises vital funds for St Richard’s Hospice, with a portion of entry fees going to the charity to help them in their vital work. You may wish to raise money for your own charity yourself too.
What shall I wear?
To have the best effect, we recommend you wear something white….but it won’t be white for long!
Is there a medal?
Yes, we’ve a cool bespoke medal waiting for all runners at the finish, along with a drink and sweets
Is it a race?
No, although you will get a race number to pin on your front, and we will time everyone, but there are NO prizes on offer.
Are dogs allowed?
Due to the paint being used, and mix of ages of runners, unfortunately we can’t allow dogs to accompany runners.
